Soooooooo i got some good news and bad news…!! cant really ask you what you want to hear first soo im just going to start you off with the bad news..
Last desoto was an awesome event!!!! got alot of seat time with the new setup……
well… old setup…I blew my motor up on the last run of the day.. im not to sure really what happened, But it is done! It sucks because i finally got it running solid and i get rod knock.
The car drove amazing all day!! lots of power!! my first runs where kinda mild because i have never drove with it running 100percent on the new setup or in the dry.. but even my first run of the day was pretty solid for like a year of not driving..
some video of my first run of the day.
Well i decided to pull the motor and not fix it.. at the moment im tight with cash and owe some money for building this car for this season.. there is only a few months left of this year im going to be smart and try and plan for the next season now instead of the last few months..
Now the good news is that i am going to be teaming up with an import/export company and new friends of mine for the new build!! I just met these guys they are from the UK.. Absolutely fucking rad people!! they came out to the desoto event and i got to meet them in person! Garage touge have been talking to me about doing a new motor.. if all goes to plan then i might be back behind the wheel in a matter of no time!!
Anyways this is all that i have for now! make sure you guys check back for more updates on the next chapter of the haskellife!!!!
Short one. Here is a shot of me from the last desoto event. Although i only got to drive for like 20 seconds, Due to car troubles Matt from Autopirate allways manages to capture me in action!! Make sure you go check out And like Autopirate Photography’s page on facebook!!
So my car went on the dyno this week. I got a call from Tampa’s own Sean Forrester about some good news and bad. He said with a quick fix of something i could get high numbers and asked me if it was ok for him and martin to make the change.
Over the past year or so ive made pretty good friends with Matt powers. He is a really cool guy im glad we are bro’s!! I try to help him out or give him words of encouragement before battle… I was telling him to just be a complete jerk on the track be “RUDE” and well if you tuned into the vegas round you saw that he was being a big asshole on the track!! Congrats to Matt on 3rd place!!!
Sooo its been a while… And well a lot has been going on!! I finally have a job!! which is really sweet I have been doing very well and within my first month got a raise!! So it is time to start cracking down and pay off all that i owe!!
Anyways besides that stuff a-lot in the drift world has been going on.. I recently went to Orlando for the 2nd Summer slide fest at CFRC/Nos energy drift park. It was really really hot and a bunch of people like got really sick and had to go to the hospital.. But the driving was pretty good! i went with my friend Tom who drove the event and he was KILLLINGGGGGGG IT His entries where nuts!!!! and where the talk of the crowd and the judges!! He made it into the finals but lost due to a spin!
Another friend of mine who came out from my area was Mike from Diverse auto! This was mikes first event at CFRC and honestly the track is really intimidating… it took mike a while to get comfortable but after a long day he started to get really smooth with everything
It was really fun “hanging out”
I have not been to CFRC in a while soo it was nice to see everyone. Alot of people did not even notice me because of my beard haha.. but i got to see alot of people i have not in a while. plus the event was really good soo it was an inspiration to really get cracking to drive again.
The night before we started shooting a video. Brent,Orlean,Tom,Mike,and myself are making a full feature film of who we are and what we do.. we are like one big family we hang out, we get really drunk, we get really wild, and we have alot of fun.. i love hanging out with these guy’s because we fuck off soo much and its like not even a big deal.. they are my family! Oh and the “Mexican” is a really cool guy to!
Brent and Orlean decided to make a video to start practicing for the big movie. and here is the finished product
After the event and the weekend i was pumped all week for the Desoto event!! I was on the event flyer soo i figured i really should go! IT WAS TIME TO DRIVE!!!
I spent all week tweaking my car to work good.. Got my ecu back from Martin @ R-S-Enthalpy Who is a big sponsor and support of me thank you martin for everything and all your help! the car was running awesome… until……
Yep…. thats me! My car was running like IC pipe blew off.. but that was not the case! I entered the first turn with a clutch kick and killed the whole sweeper and linked the small straight to the 2nd sweeper then my car just failed.. It started puttin and running really rich. I was pushed off track and drove it to the pits. I pulled the plugs and they where really fouled out soo i wire brushed them and put em in and my car ran pretty good again.. so i went out for a 2nd run with a tandem group with tom,mike and billy. and right when i hit the first sweeper my car died out again.. AHHHHHHH
So i decided to just park it for the rest of the day.. and go hang out at basecamp aka the rage tent.
The krew is always out to show love and support!! hang out and get really rowdy!!
I pretty much looked and felt like shit.. the whole day.. Me Brent and Shane went out with Mike and his gf to El Adobe, A Mexican restaurant.. we got 2 pitchers of margaritas and spent like almost 100 dollars for them.. we where blown the fuck away when we got the bill.. soo We just went out to siesta key till 2am and got more drunk… soo i woke up with a really bad hang over and honestly i completely forgot the whole night haha..
Mike ended up going to the hospital after this event… he got dehydrated it was really hot!! All you dudes out there need to really bring some good drinks to these events!!! they get hot!! stop going after the free Nos all the time!! Get some damn water fools!! Mike is doing fine!! But after 2 events of people getting sick remember water is important!!
After the event we headed over to Orleans for a BBQ…. To be honest it was more like a fucking viking feast!! NO JOKE!! there was like 25 chicken breasts 20 burgers 40 wings, mac, chips, beers corn on the cob is was insane orlean really out did himself!!
After a long day we feasted and had good times!! Wii bowling, good music, good food, and good friends!! Actually… Make that good Family!
We all parted out as the day weekend came to an end… unfortunately my car did not make it home with me… i had to leave it at Orleans. as i left his house it started acting up really really bad… so i left it there. And i was talking to Jeff Frontcakas about how i need to get my car looked at by martin.. soo i finally said fuck this i need to do that! Well a friend of mine Doug Owner of Z-fever Now Fever Racing Told me just to bring it up after he read my post on facebook soo bought it up there today and hopefully they can figure it out! Also im finally getting this thing on the dyno to see what she puts out soo hopefully i might have video/ numbers of how my car runs!! Check out fever racing at http://www.zfever.com/
Anyways this is what i got for now!! Im working really hard to get out of debt and enjoy life..It’s honestly nice working again and it was really nice to see my bros again after like a month of not making a trip down to srq to party!! honestly i think Tom,Mike,Brent,And myself are the next force to be reckoned with.. we fuck shit up we love drifting and we are bros and we got a bunch of family/friends to support our wild antics.. Be sure to keep an eye out for out video/videos
$400 DOLLAR MARGARITAS!!!
So i got bored tonight and we all know what happens with most people when we get bored… We go raid the kitchen… It is actually a proven fact when a person gets bored it leads to hunger!! lol well anyways i went out into the kitchen scoped everywhere the food was kept and came up dry!!
So i was like shit!! what am i going to eat!! I kept looking around hoping i would find something fast , easy and good… but there was nothing!!! And then i saw this bag of random bread ive never seen before… I tasted a little piece and was like holy crap!! this is really good bread!!
So i decided i would get alittle nuts!! I took a good piece of this bread and put some butter on it and baked it for a min… let it get the butter melted all over it.. and then i took it out and sprinkled a little bit of crushed red pepper and garlic salt on it.
After that i popped it back into the oven and let it get kinda crispy and lightly golden… then took it out after about a good 60 seconds.. cut it open. and stuffed some pepper jack cheese and cheddar into the middle to melt!!
While i let that cook i chopped up some green olives for a topping!! just to add a little more flavor instead of just bread and cheese!!
After the cheese started to melt a bit i took it back out of the oven and put the olives on it.. and put it back in for about 8 min.
After about a good 8-10 min i took it out.. I prepared myself a glass of chocolate milk and sprinkled a bit of permesean cheese and also alittle hot sauce on top and ate it… To be honest it was pretty damn good. it was just the right tone of cheese and the peperjack took away the grilled cheese flavor of the yellow cheese!! and the olives set the tone of ballnce in flavor for it!! and when i added a sprinkle of permersean cheese and hot sauce thats what made it taste awesome!! the flavor is hard to describe!!
