Instagram is taking over the world, well my world, for serious!

This past weekend was Formula Drift round 1 Long Beach 2012 and I literally DID NOT SNAP ONE PIC with my camera!



Soooo I’m telling you NOW to FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @JarodDeAnda
BUT I won’t give up blogging, It’s all good but I’ll show you what you’ve been missing on my Instagram feed and some stuff that I did snap over the past month!

I’ll start with this past weekend’s video that I enjoyed!

Human Clipping Point, Santa Claus, Chuck Norris legs, I’ve helped promote this dude, his name is Bil Baldwin and he’s a GREAT fun loving dude! He’s now part of drifting folklore and has THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE!
