Fall Nationals ’11


Photos By: Brian Chin

It wouldn’t be a Raceway Park Fall Nationals Event if it didn’t have crazy weather, fast cars, tons of break downs, hot cars and scantily clad women on stage dancing around. It was great to see Gary Gardella back on the drag strip racing again but personally, I was quite upset that Chris Rado wasn’t able to make it out to the event to have their grudge match. It’s never a dull moment at Raceway Park events and what a way to close out the season. I can’t wait until next years Spring Nationals to see how this scene continually progresses. Enjoy the photos!

Liberty VIP hosted their second annual Black event at Raceway Park’s Fall Nationals. There was a nice showing of cars despite the weather. Low and slow, bagged or static, flush or tucked. Take your pick, they had it all. For the winners of the show, they got to take some of the more interesting trophies that I’ve seen at a car show. Enjoy the pictures!

Import Survival Series 1

With 70 degree weather the week prior to Import Survival Series 1, there were high hopes of nice weather for the first car show of the season at Englishtowns, Raceway Park. Sadly enough, it was a brisk 30 degrees when I arrived at the track. However, the racers still came out to make those passes down the 1320 to work out the winter bugs and the show goers got to see some of their competition for the season. MC Slick and DJ L Nino held it down on stage keeping the beats bumping for the crowd.

James Baird Park Meet

One sunny morning, just before SEMA, I got a call to grab my camera and be ready. Not long after that call, I found myself in a car ride cruising up the highway and through the NY mountains with some of the cleanest cars in the northeast. Two hours later we landed at James Baird Park for a meet and BBQ. Hot cars and good food made for a fun trip. I have no clue who actually setup this gathering but Thank You for a good time.

SEMA ’10

SEMA 2010 marked the 8th year SpeedLounge.com has been in attendance. Year after year you think you would be oblivious but after last years SEMA and the low attendance it would make you think what is in store for the aftermarket performance industry? Well this year definitely made things turn around. With over 40,000 attendees and a packed convention center, you can tell that the economy is starting to pick up. It should only get better from here!

“BLACK” By Liberty VIP

“Black” is the 1st annual premier luxury VIP car show by Liberty VIP. The show was held at Club Abyss in Sayerville, NJ. Never before has there been a car show dedicated to the true Japanese luxury VIP and VIP style community in the east coast. You won’t find any DUB’s here. Once I heard that this show was going down I had to check it out for myself. The turn out was great and I got to see some of the best looking VIP cars around. Big props go out to Agi and the Liberty VIP crew for throwing this all exclusive VIP show. For more photos Click Here
