Drifting and drag-racing at the speedway: Import Face Off, Las Vegas

It’s another Sunday Funday and this time there’s drifting AND drag-racing at Las Vegas Motorspeedway.

Ranging from hot-rods to award-winning show-cars, there’s also a plethora of new and classic import vehicles to be found.

From VegasDrift:
From VegasDrift: “Team #2 “Team 4-Banger” and all SR/s13 Hatch Team made up of “Limit Break” team members Edwin Aguilar, Bobby Genson, with Exotics Racing Instructor Mark Tecson held the most consistent gap, completed the course with all team members, and were judged the winners of the Single Run Team Tandem Mini Comp!”

This is probably the best weather to go out and drive, so take advantage of the weather while its still cool. Until next time, keep the pages turning and them tires burning!
