DriftSTL – A spring awakening

When the St. Louis drift community wakes up from a long winter, they do what comes natural.. they go hard. Each spring a community of dedicated car nuts, itching to get behind the wheel and shred come out of their garages to shake off the rust.

This past weekend a community of unknowns, ProAm and Pro2 drivers, in everything from Nocturnal Motorsports’ purpose built tube-frame drift monsters to stock Ford Mustangs, set out to slay the parking lot / events area of Gateway Motorsport Park.

And slay they did.

As a parking lot event, the lack of walls allowed many drivers the opportunity to try their hand at drifting.

Others  decided to go hard right out of the gate and flip their freshly finished beast.

It was a day to celebrate spring and kick-off the 2016 season in St. Louis.

A time to celebrate friendships and to enjoy life.

The first time I can remember picking up a camera was at 8 years old on a family vacation. At that time photography was only a hobby while traveling. It wasn't until I purchased my first DSLR after high school that photography became a passion. In 2009, I was given my first credentials to a Rally America event and began to dream of making photography and Motorsports my life. After working with numerous clients in a variety of series from IMSA to Red Bull GRC, photography and Motorsports have provided me with a career and fulfilled a dream.
