KMS Drift: GCS Florida
The heat was on as KMS Drift slid back in to Florida with a packed house. Kicking off the event Friday night, the drivers were promised maximum seat time, and that is exactly what they got as they slid until it was too dark to see. As the sun came up Saturday, drivers rolled in to shred some tires and compete between the two tracks. The competition track was set in an “M” style layout with two nice sweepers and elevation change that made for some fun sliding. The second track was a wide open lot for drivers to hone their skills and advance through the ranks of the KMS Drift series. Over 30 drivers from four states gave a show to the 400+ spectators over the two days. When the day winded down and the sand and smoke settled it was another huge success for grassroots drifting.

The competition had its top 16 placed and it was time to see who would walk away with the bragging rights as the King of GCS. It was a tough battle of skills requiring several OMT to ensure the proper drivers advanced. One of the biggest surprises of the event was Jeffery Dockery who threw it all out in his first completion and walked away with a second place finish. Unfortunately, several cars broke and were unable to finish the competition.

The biggest OMT for GCS is the announcement that we will be having an OMT at the desired location on July 13, 2013. Thank you all for making this happen, see you in July!

AutoCon 2014: Pomona, CA

Text by Big Mike. Photos by Paul Nguyen AutoCon’s growth as a car show and event has been impressive to witness over the last few years. Starting in 2010, the show was held in an underground parking structure in the City of Industry, CA, and presented as a charity-type event as they collaborated with the Marines and Toys for Tots. Many of my friends and industry partners were either attending or playing a major role in the event, so I made sure to make it out. The vibe was fun, laid back - more of a meet then a show…
