Texas Tire BBQ

Headed to Texas this past weekend, Texas Motor Speedway to be exact.
This was for a Formula Drift Great 8 competition before the Indy Car Twin 275’s…
It was a quick trip, hanging, MC’ing, working, sliding and grindin…

Myself & Formula Drift judge & my good friend Anthony Angelo…

    In pic 3, I see on the right side of Tony B’s car, COOPER is sprayed on…on the left side of the tire, it sure does look like Hankook is branded on the sidewall…

    Guess I’m just a tire nerd, probably the only guy that notices that kind of crap…
