Street Driven Tour’s “Drift Mini Games” also returned toward the end of the day, with three crowd-favorites taking place on the Full Course after NASA racing had ended:

? Hard Parking Challenge, where entrants drift toward a wall of boxes and compete for who can come to rest the closest, without contact

? Drift Soccer, in which competitors attempt to drift a tee’d soccer ball into a goal

? 360 Drift, in which competitors connect two turns of the VIR Full Course with 360-degree drifts

Ending things with a real bang this year was the Tire Massacre, which saw epic burnout after epic burnout, without a single failed attempt. Entrants included everything from Mike Prez’s Supra, to a vintage BMW and a Barbie Cart competitor’s daily-driven Ford Escort, to no fewer than three Miatas, and even a donut-spinning late-model Ford Mustang.

But the hands-down winner became Trent Doak, the moment his V8-swapped Miata erupted in a blaze of glory after a shift into sixth gear at the end of a big smoker roasted his clutch instead of his tires, and sent chunks of glowing flywheel shooting out from underhood, piercing a fuel line in the process. Lesson learned: Scatter-shields are a good thing. Watching your car nearly burn to the ground … not so much.

With another come and gone, another car show in the books; the annual SpoCom Consumer and Tradeshow was held at the Anaheim Convention Center and it did not disappoint. Despite the sweltering heat, the patrons amassed and attended another one of Southern California's premier shows. All the usual suspects were out in full force and some of the newcomers burst on to the scene. Glimpses of the new Scion FR-S were right at the forefront with video game demos and giveaways. The models lounge was packed solid as well, with everyone from international model Christine Barnum to the breakout Geisha…

Snowball Rally 2017

When you were 10 years old, did you have a poster of a Ferrari on your wall? I did. In fact, it was a picture that also featured a Porsche, a Lamborghini, and a BMW. All four cars were perfectly parked in their custom-built garages, and in the background was a mansion overlooking the ocean. This is a common childhood dream, and for those who can grow up to afford it, a reality - specifically a beautiful supercar kept hidden away in a showroom garage. What about the people who actually drive their exotic cars? There’s an answer: Snowball Rally.…
