I want to put this out there from the beginning: I have never seen the 1990 Tom Selleck western, Quigley Down Under, which features the aforementioned actor portraying an American cowboy and sharpshooter hired by an Australian to kill off the Aborigines people from long distances. Yet, when people learn of my last name, the inquisition into whether I have viewed said film is something that usually transpires. But for this particular article about my trip to Texas to see the inaugural race of the V8 Supercars on American soil, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to place such a terrible pun in the title.

Sunday may have been the last day of the OTR, but it certainly wasn’t the least. The stages, set around Dufur, are some of the fastest and most unforgiving in the entire weekend. Cautions around every bend test the determination and courage of every white-knuckled driver and co-driver seeking victory. The carnage was some of the highest in the history of the OTR with 31 cars retiring, but thanks to modern safety everyone is alright. Read on!
As I write this, I am still recovering from an exhilarating yet exhausting weekend. This time of the year, Oregon is in the spotlight of one of the largest rally events in the nation. The Oregon Trail Rally, hosted by the Rally America series, took place from the 3rd through the 5th of this month. In these next few posts, I hope you get to immerse yourself in the exciting, loud, dirt-in-your-mouth atmosphere that I got to experience. I’ll get down to writing about neat things like sunburn, dehydration, sleep deprivation and lame stuff like racecars, jumps, and Ken Block.
Happy New Year, and the first of many more updates from Japan! Let’s start with something a little different…
Well, I seem to still be alive, and if you’re reading this, I assume you are too. No doomsday apocalypse here, so to celebrate, I present my year-in-review post. I traversed nearly 11,000 miles and spent over $1,100 in fuel, on top of hotels, food, camera gear/repairs/rentals, supplies, etc. The end result of those expenditures follows (you’ll find links to each event’s main article within).

Something to put us in a Summer time mood, straight from Japan…. FREEE’s S13 Silvia!Read More
Prodrift round 2 starts tomorrow. But today the track layout was being finalised and there was a practice day. Naturally I had to show up. Not to mention Mike Fitz was testing the new look FC3S. We’ll have a full update including some new unseen shots from our Hankook shoot after the weekend. As far as I know these are the first action shots of the car. The bumpers are intact but as it was a practice day they were just left back in the pits.Read More

The day, April 6th, 2012. The reason…Round 1 of Formula Drift qualifying runs. Located in beautiful downtown Long Beach, California. We could not have asked for better weather. The day gave us a light breeze that would carry the obscene amounts of smoke away as we made our feeble attempts to remove the tire chunks from our clothes. All efforts made from everyone involved the Formula Drift series made this the most anticipated event to date. There were a record breaking 19 rookies from 2012’s season opener, and a majority of them had the task of tackling Long Beach for their first Formula Drift event.
This is one of our newest members to the OMGDrift family, Danny George in his ’94 Miata powered by a beautiful LS1 V8 from Crabbroker.com
