Well it’s been a while since I’ve gotten a chance to blog and put up some coverage. Being a recent graduate and getting a job in my field of study has really been taking up most of my time these days. Well enough about myself; let’s cut to the coverage.

I recently attended the Formula Drift event in Long Beach, CA. It’s one of the most anticipated shows of the year for me. The location is just gorgeous and having professional drift cars on the “streets” of Long Beach is just incredible.

Big Abe was out there with his “Big Abe” sized NOS can. He was working for NOS and regulating the VIP NOS area.
