Come to the address and go to the back yard to see this…
Yes, those are horses…

Ryan headed into the “studio”…

Then bam, it’s sick!!!
Jeff was awesome and we had a great time doing what we do…

Jeff the guy who owns this place managed some Reggae bands in the 80′s I’ll let you guess which dude he is…

Post voiceover libations with the fellas…
Washoe House is rad…

Check out the dollar bills on the ceiling, people have been doing this since mid 1800′s in stage coach days, crazy cool!

We decided we need to leave our mark too!




Saturday aka “GAME DAY”!

The NOS Energy Drink X Keep Drifting Fun stickers are a hit, guys and gals came and asked me for them and I stoked them with the Vegas sticker too for being awesome!!!
These dudes were psyched!

Ryan was psyched on his new NOS Energy Drink Nos Ban’s…

The Paddock got packed during the half time…

My cousin Sean came out and kicked it both Friday & Saturday, I had to get this pic of him and the NOS girls…

My dad and half sister came out to see/hear me do my thing…

The crowds ready for some DRIFTING ACTION!!!

There’s your podium
