Lots have changed!! I know I’ve said that a few times, but it seems to never settle. I am officially back in Ybor city, Tampa. My father’s house in Texas, after being ransacked and pillaged, has been remodeled and sold. I’m so happy to put that year long nightmare behind me. I managed to make some amazing friends while in Texas, at least. So now I’m back home and trying to get business of the ground. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!!
This weekend proved to be an interesting one for drivers. A fast course, coupled with a tough line definitely separated the men from the boys. Adverse weather conditions late into qualifying certainly posed issues for Kevin Williams and Fielding Shredder. The track has become insanely slick now and will certainly provide for a dangerous Top 16 bout.
Our sponsored car piloted by Fielding Shredder of Shredder Racing qualified Top 16!
Mario Gomez beats out Garret Hoyt, William Little takes the lead over Dewayne Ramsey, Josh takes the win from Ben Green, and True Taylor forfeits to Chris Tyrone due to the wet conditions for the Top 4 spots
Mario Gomez, William Little, Josh and Christ Tyrone battle it out for the Top 3 spots
Mario beats William, securing a podium spot. Chris spins out his first run against Josh, giving Josh a strong advantage. Josh wins the round and faces off with Mario Gomez in the battle for First Place.
Vying for 3rd place spot, Chris comes out of drift after entry trying to compensate which ultimately will give William an advantage. Chris goes off track, giving William the 3rd place spot.
Mario Gomez, the Texas native, goes against Josh (who apparently just moved to Texas) for 1st and 2nd places. Josh puts some distance between the two cars while leading the round. Upon switching positions, Mario spins while leading, and Josh wins 1st place!
Congrats to Josh McGuire for first place, Mario Gomez for 2nd and William Little for 3rd!!
So, i’m in Houston (well, LeMarque, but close enough) again and at GGP for the first time since 2005. The last time i was here was so i could embarrassingly drive my way to NOT gain a Formula D license. But hell, we were all young and dumb and i had never driven the car i built until that weekend. That was one hell of a shake down run that showed not only are alignments important, but so is tightening the jam nuts on all your suspension arms.
This time, i am here to pitch my new business venture, Hell Bent Garage. I whipped up some sweet trophies for the round’s winners and am officially sponsoring Shredder Racing‘s car for the season. It’s awesome to get back in the saddle again after a 2 year hiatus.
So much has been happening in the past 8 months that i have neglected this site, and i apologize. Between moving to Texas, used for housing by some awful drift-groupie broad, getting my deceased father’s affairs in order, revamping his house, setting up shop (Hell Bent Garage), another amazing 8 Ball Rally in the works, sponsoring Shredder Racing‘s Pro Am series car, building my own 240SX… the list goes on and on. I promise to update this site more so that both of my blog’s followers are kept abreast of what’s been going on out here in the Lonestar State.
Here it is, kiddies. The official flyer for the greatest poker run the world has ever known.
