From The Bay to LA
A few weeks ago, the FTLC crew packed up and caravanned from the Paddock in San Mateo to FD Long Beach. We met up bright and early and made our way to a few meeting points in route to the streets of Long Beach. It was definitely a good time and we want to thank everyone again that made it out with us.
We arrived a few hours before our Slammed Society Showcase roll in so we had a chance to check out some of practice runs and scope out the rest of the venue. Long Beach is one of my favorite tracks of the season so I was really stoked to be back. I must say, this year the entire field is stacked with amazing drivers and even more amazing cars. The paddock also had some pretty awesome cars too.
We didn’t realize that JR was pretty much running on 3 wheels this run until after we uploaded this photo. Crazy.
As practice for the day ended, lines and lines of cars were starting to arrive waiting to be staged. Southern California never disappoints. It is always good to see cars that you may notice from previous events and see how much progression and ideas the owner has come up with. We saw everything from american muscle to bagged VIPs and everything in between.
We got all the cars staged and called it a night. We came back bright and early the next morning and got ready for the day. You can find Yogi’s coverage of the showcase HERE. Overall, it was an awesome time and we want to congratulate the winners again and thank everyone that came out. We hope to see you all real soon.
