Waterfest Kruize 2012

The Waterfest Kruize is the ultimate way to kick off the Waterfest weekend – what we at PASMAG refer to as a coming of age tradition. Pulling into the JRP parking lot around 6 A.M. can be a gruelling experience for some, but for the anxious VW and Audi fans wired on coffee and energy drink, they’re ready to burn some gas.

A 500-mile trip – on the other side of the ditch no less – can also be a daunting task. Keeping the 10-car-convoy together while aiming for strategic gas stops and food are all part of the experience. Luckily, JRP supplied a filling breakfast to boost morale and get us ready for the trip.

If you’ve taken part in the Kruize before, you know that once we pass the border it’s an endurance race. You don’t want to stray too far behind or take off too far ahead because the reality of finding yourself all alone in the tri-state area – as many of have found themselves in previous years - can be quite the predicament. But, if you’re able to display some decent driving skills you will find yourself in the middle of a high-speed photo shoot. Driving through traffic while your partner documents the high-adrenalin experience is what the Kruize is all about. And, when you get there, you realize the 10-hour drive isn’t so bad.

DMCC 2014 Round 1: Ste-Croix, QC

It seems that at the start of every DMCC series season that rain and wet conditions are in the forecast. Sure enough, Round 1 of the 2014 DMCC series, which took place at the RiverSide Speedway in St Croix, Quebec on Sunday, May 25, 2014, was a wet one. Besides the wet conditions, the event itself started off good. During the first driver’s meeting of the day, I spotted Scion Racing driver, Pat Cyr, out with his FR-S and showing-off its new livery. The judges made it very clear to the drivers that with the wet conditions they were going…

Import Face-Off 2010: Las Vegas, NV

This event had the largest turnout for the FWD class in Import Face Off (IFO) history, proving import drag racing is alive and well on the West coast. The FWD class, usually a top 8 qualifier only, had so many contestants (30+) that IFO officials had to double it into a top 16 field and add a secondary class for qualifiers 17 to 24! Unfortunately, the racing portion of the event rained out after the first round of eliminations. Payouts were split up evenly with all the racers left in the competition.
