Favorite Things

Sideways Saturday

The smell of burning rubber filled my lungs, I batted my eyelashes to protect my eyes from flying pieces of tire, I barricaded myself behind concrete barriers… and I loved it! Today was Sideways Saturday, the first drift event of Montana (more to come I hope) . The beauty was of the simplicity of it all. Get sideways, get better, get more awesome. Safety being a top priority, and fun being a close second.  The smiles on faces were unmistakable, a sense of pride, accomplishment, and sheer enjoyment. There are few automotive events that could boast of such success. There was something for everyone, and a community of automotive drift enthusiasts that wouldn’t quit. I’ve posted some of the excitement below, even though it is one of those stories that end with: “you just had to be there.”
