Lonestar Bash 2009 Coverage

October 28, 2009

Finally, over a week later I’m here to report on our Lonestar Bash trip. Due to a bad stomach flu last week I was only able to sleep and be sick, but now I’ve recovered so on to the event coverage.

Lonestar Bash 2009 was pretty epic…8-10 car tandems and lots of drivers out roasting tires. The weather was beautiful and a great time was had by all. As mentioned in a previous post, we were hauling a CA18 engine back from the event for a friend. Their entourage came over Saturday night and stayed over since we all would be leaving at 4:30 am the next morning to get to Mineral Wells at a decent time. They managed to beat our Mario Cart Wii for us while we tried to get some shuteye, so much for sleep.

Drive was uneventful and we arrived at the event around 10am. Lots of spectators. The rest of the day was spent taking some photos (over 800 actually), playing with the dog, meeting up with friends from all corners of Texas, and generally trying to take it easy. Our group left around 6pm for the 4-5hr trip back, engine and all. Definitely an excellent event in Texas drifting history!


Wii rocks!


Morning meetup before heading out


You know you are in Mineral Wells when...there are 240s with extra tires on top at the local gas station. Yes!!

Shyla chillin with Ian


Shyla did great at the event. Cars didn't bother her, but she wanted to tear apart Norm's ATV something fierce!


Taco Casa for dinner!
