Cool spring weather, nice cloudy day, and the pleasant smell of burning rubber all up in your nostrils. You know it will be a good day!
April 20th 2013, Friction Motor Sports out of OKC and SticktoDrifting.com held their second Drift event. Red River Shootout 2, was held in Stroud Oklahoma. It was my first time at a drift event (vhx) and I gotta say, pretty legit stuff to watch. I would much rather be in the passenger seat getting all the second hand action but I had to “sticktophotography” and capture all the legit drifts.
Everyone brought their own tools for the quick fixes and extra set of wheels and tires. I was also quite surprised at the set up they had onsite for quick tire change. Everything was well planned, even the location was a perfect spot. Right off the highway, close to gas station, and had a grill and NOS Energy on site.
There were some good drifters out and about, Texas especially came out hard, Oklahoma as well! A few people had problems with engines and parts flying off but that’s what its all about. Build, Race, Break, Build again.
Also had a small Stance meet but not much showed up since it was a drift event. Twisted Illusions and a couple of guys from SLO Crew came out for the event.
Pro or not at the end of the day everyone had a good time sliding sideways and burning rubber. Until next time play it safe and Sticktodrifting!
