This past weekend Back to the Drift event was at Wild Horse Pass Motor Sports Park. This event was the first round in the Southwest drift series for Vegas Drift and also a car show hosted by Car Street Journal. About 40 cars entered in the drift event and lots of cars signed up for the car show. Even though this event landed on valentines day the crowd showed up by the hundreds to witness this amazing event.
Working this event was an awesome experience! Working side by side with the amazing Vegas Drift crew was a great experience. As organized as this event was, part of the CSJ staff members helped on track with the drift event by waving and blocking off areas for drift cars to radioing updates right on the track. This was my first drift event that I was able to work on and being able to work with Vegas Drift was a big plus!
The car show that CSJ put on was a blast! From a fun and loud DJ, to perfect trophies done by Cam Art, I just couldn’t get enough of all the amazing and rare cars that showed up. This wasn’t you average roll up to shop kind of meet. In the show there were three skylines and a GT-R, 370Z, XBs, all the way to a Tiffany Blue BMW. With our sponsors from JDM Fresh selling air fresheners and Cam Art selling there famous shift knobs this show went off with out a problem.
On the behalf of Car Street Journal we would like to thank everyone that came out and supported this event and cant wait to see all you guys again!
