Up until this past event, my attention has been divided between photographing the drifting portion and the autocross portion, with more of my attention going to the drifters. On August 12th, however, the event was solely autocross. I was able to give my full attention to these talented drivers.
I feel like I was swooshed back to the 90’s and taken to far away Japan. The cars here were amazing. They all had their own unique style. I saw many different window tints and liveries and teams and body kits.
This is so surreal to be writing a piece on. First State Drift… The best place to start this off is going to be to talk about 8 years ago where it all began for me and to give you all a little background on myself and my experience with automotive sports.
If you missed this event… you did something wrong! This was, by far, one of the most awesome and memorable drift events I have been to since All Star Bash 2013. It was absolutely crazy to see the pros bring out their FD cars onto the Etown track. Not to mention the shredders out there…
East Coast Bash was alive and poppin’. I can see why many refer to Englishtown Raceway Park as #TheGreatestPlaceOnEarth
