As my eyes cracked open to the sound of my alarm clock, at an hour that shouldn’t exist on weekends, I thought to myself, Is it really time to get up? Then I remembered, It’s Sideways Sunday, and I sprung to my feet. I rushed to load the car and peeled off to Toyota Speedway! I arrived at the parking lot at 9:30 AM. As I stepped out of the car, I noticed a strange melting sensation taking over my body… It was already BLISTERING HOT! Luckily I had an umbrella for shade and plenty of Gatorade! The first thing I noticed was the laid back vibe. Several drivers were in Las Vegas for FD. That opened up some slots for other drivers, and gave us time for contests and shade! The water balloon toss sparked off a free for all water fight, with Troy Adams seeming to get the worst of the punishment.

It was another fantastic night at Adams Motorsports Park! It started and packed bleachers. The track was filled with action! Although the Hoosier tires got some love on a couple occasions…

We, at K.R.O.P.S., encourage people to keep racing off public streets. We also love to encourage and support people who are striving to make a name for themselves. So we would like to take this time and show all of you an event we attended this past weekend in Anaheim, CA. It was for our friend’s summer launch party for their new clothing line, Feather Brand. They say most of their shirts are dedicated to fulfill confidence and pride. Feather makes shirts as masonry for others and each shirt has a huge message behind it. A reflective brand, a statement, a new look, their clothing is a representation of a lifestyle that has yet to come. Continue reading

On July 31, 2011, was another Sideways Sundays event that took place at Irwindale Speedway, CA, from 10 AM to 4 PM. It was a drifting event hosted by Adams Motorsports that was geared more for the grassroots crowd/drifters. Some of the festivities consisted of a car show, live DJs, vendors, models, contests, prizes, and of course the non-stop drifting action.
