HONDA DAY 2012 Part 2 – Atco Raceway NJ

Photos By: Brian Chin

It didn’t surprise me to get a call from a friend on Sunday morning at 8:30 saying that the car show was sold out. Yes only a half hour after the show “technically” started, 600 cars had already been entered into the car show. Throughout the day, those that couldn’t get into the car show setup what looked like a meet in the parking lot. It’s a good thing that in the off season, Atco Raceway had expanded their parking lot to accommodate additional parking for spectators.

Anyways, enough of the jibber jabber, click on the photos above to jump to the gallery.

HONDA DAY 2012 Part I – Atco Raceway NJ

Honda Day was held on April 14th and 15th at Atco Raceway in NJ. This event was recorded as the largest turnout in Atco Raceways’s 50 year history. Cars lined up in at the crack of dawn and the event was sold out within hours due to capacity limits. The Ruckus crew also rolled in deep this year. The event was hosted by our very own Frankie Five and MC Slick. Both provided solid entertainment and got the crowd jumping all weekend showering them with free gifts from the stage. We also had some very special guests that flew in strait from Japan to check out the east coast scene and cover the event for USDM Freax magazine! Congratulations to all the car show and drag race winners. I cannot wait to see what the next Honda Day event at Etown will bring. For more photos of the event Click Here!

Another huge car meet presented by Mr. Bakerz on Sunday, June 5th at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens NY. It was so big that this time the event got unwanted attention and was actually cut short by the cops. Despite having to break out early, we still had a great time and got to see lots of real nice rides. Hopefully the next meet won’t have to involve the police… For more photos Click Here

Honda Day Part 1 – Atco

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.

Step Brothers

A couple of my buddies have similar taste when it comes to modding civics. Its not too often that Andy’s coupe and Joeham’s hatch are seen together so I had to jump at the chance to snap some pictures of them together. From the front end, besides the height difference, it would be hard to tell whose car is whose until you make your way around the cars. The Work RSZ-R’s and a load of JDM goodies accent the non-pink milano red paint. Lots more can be said about these cars but you’ll just have to wait for the details. Enjoy the pix!
