This past weekend was Raceway Park’s 15th Annual Sport Compact Spring Nationals. Big crowds, fast cars, beautiful ladies and musical concert pretty much sums up the event. Click on the photos above to jump to the gallery to see what went down on this crazy weekend. Thanks OGS and all the supported the event!
Honda Day at Atco Raceway is one of the most anticipated events of the year. This event grows larger every year and if you didn’t come early for this one, then you were probably left outside on the streets as the venue reached maximum capacity halfway into the day. If you were one of the people that camped out overnight or arrived before the sun came up, then I hope you enjoyed the event as much as I did. First walking into the venue, you come across the car show. The lot was filled with a variety of cars from wild show cars with insane amounts of body conversions to the simple and clean rides of JDM styling. The further into the venue you go, you reach vendor row where you can pick up the latest parts and accessories from VRaceworks, MB Racing and Project JDM. After registering for the Honda Day giveaway car, Honda Day swag was available for purchase and lets not forget, EatSleepRace was on point with all your original gearhead apparel. As you continue walking along, you come across the pits where the drag racers are prepping their cars for a pass down the 1320. Even though there were quite a few break downs throughout the day, there was still plenty of good racing action especially the K tuned all motor finals as Tim Grey and Jake Gavio battled in the closest race I’ve ever seen as they ran identical times and mph but Jake just barely got to the finish line first. In the middle of all this craziness was the Honda Day stage. Elite Camp’s DJ Mpos and DJ Jay Jung along with DJ L Nino kept the beats bumpin all day long while MC Slick and Frankie Five kept the crowd entertained with contest and giveaways of Ipods, tee shirts, plate frames and to top it off, a free car at the end of the day that one lucky spectator gets to take home. Thanks to OGS for putting on such a great event. I can only imagine how insane Honda Day at Englishtown will be.
This weekend to ring in Spring and warmer weather the guys at EAT SLEEP RACE held a BBQ and we were invited to check it out! EAT SLEEP RACE, a NJ based clothing company designs and created motorsports inspired apparel. I’m sure most of you have seen the original and bootlegs of the infamous bobblehead design! The company recently aqcuired new location and celebrated with some of their closest friends in and out of the scene. Check out the photos that Chinzo took and make sure you check out their entire clothing line at www.eatsleeprace.com
The off season in the northeast can be pretty chilling. Sub freezing temps and digging out 3 feet of snow can make the simplest of gatherings more work then Ronnie and Sammie’s relationship on Jersey Shore. OGS put together a karting battle at Pole Position in Jersey City, NJ to get a little friendly competition going to get everyone ready for the upcoming season. Go-karts, food and free swag, what more can you ask for. Thanks to all the supporters and sponsors and Javier for putting this together.
