Three cities, three days, and 500 miles on the road … we took to the southeast Texas triangle; Houston, San Antonio, Austin. Arguably the largest 8-6 celebration in the USA this year gathered AE86 (and other Toyota) owners willing to put in more than ten hours on the road to experience a multi-city road trip, car show, drift demo, and a weekend stay on the famous River Walk in San Antonio, Texas.
Enjoy the teaser pics here and stay tuned for a full recap coming soon!
You’ve probably heard the saying, “Everything is Bigger in Texas.” Well, it definitely holds a bit of truth when you’re talking about the grassroots drifting scene in Texas. There are a tremendous amount of talented drivers, some amazingly well built cars, and plenty of events year round.

NST – NonStopTuning
Our good friend Mikael Hinojosa joined us for a great night of drifting Thursday April 1, 2010, at IR Drift. Mikael is a big fan of the TX drift scene and has been to several drift events as a participant, photographer, and spectator. Mikael put his photo and journalistic skills to work and uploaded a recap article on chron.com.
I got a call today from our good friend Ernie, at XDC. He told me to check out the XDC website, and when I did I was blown away! One of the banners on the XDC index page has the three 2010 NST drift cars listed!
We are definitely pumped for XDC Round 2 in Las Vegas!!!
NST – NonStopTuning
Another local drift event has come and gone… another batch of tires have been smoked, barrels of gas and Red Bull are empty. And yet, if you were to call any of us to go out there again tomorrow the answer would be the same… “I’ll meet you there in the morning!”
I hardly ever take my own camera out to local events these days. The local coverage from sources such as Mayday Garage, Andrew Castaneda, and other talented photographers means that the drivers and event staff can have one less thing to worry about. A blast from the past, Alex of DailyDrifter fame was even on hand, taking pics this time around! These guys take awesome pics and we try to make sure other things run smoothly.
End rant, enter pics…
