Sideways Art: Focusing On Visuals By Speedhunters


Posted on

It’s been a very busy summer of Speedhunting for me.

I haven’t updated these pages with many photos from the Formula Drift season thus far as I figured Paddy has been telling some great stories from the paddock while following the Worthouse Drift Team closely. I always like to take a different approach when there’s more than one Speedhunter at the same event shooting the same subjects, and for FD I really wanted to focus on the visual beauty and the powerful emotions behind the motorsport. With that said, here are 100 of my favorite shots from the past four events, with a few captions added here and there.


It’s been a crazy season so far with Fredric Aasbø and James Deane at each other’s throats.


For the Worthouse team, it’s proved to be massively effective having cars that are 95 percent identical.


The sandwich I ate for lunch was this big.

The finals had a few shake up and unexpected events. Starting with Trent Beechum getting ‘taken out by a cone’. As Trent over-shot inside clip 1 he dropped over the rumble strips, picking up and cone and shattering all of his passenger side suspension. Matt Vankirk advanced.

Driver Spike Chen showed some real skill by qualifying in 13th place at his first Pro2 event. Spike came up short thou as his car ran out of gas during his lead run. Austin Meeks advanced.

In the final 4 number 2 qualifier, Dirk Stratton pushed a bit to hard and shot into the kitty litter. Randall Water took the win. Randall would later join him, loosing to Travis Reeder the same way.

The finals between Travis Reeder and Matt Vankirk looked to be a great battle between the 2 Pacific Northwest drivers. Unfortunately Matt succumb to mechanical problems and could not run. On his by-run Travis also had mechanical problems and only drifted about half the course.

Formula DRIFT PRO 2 Round 2 Atlanta Results;

Travis Reeder is Victorious and Moves to the Top of the Standings



Long Beach, Calif. – May 12, 2017 – The Formula DRIFT PRO 2 season continued to Road Atlanta. Travis Reeder takes the win and moves to the top of the PRO 2 standings.

PRO 2 entered Atlanta, GA for the second event of the season. The future stars of the sport took to the famous Road Atlanta track and put on a show for the devoted fans.

“PRO 2 has grown and now has its own fan base,” said Jim Liaw, President of Formula DRIFT. “This was proven tonight as fans stayed through the late hours at the track to watch the young talent compete.”

The semi-finals pitted Matt Vankirk in the Fortune Auto / Achilles Nissan 240 with Brody Goble in the BG Motorsports Nissan 240. Vankirk outdrove his opponent to move into the Finals. On the other side of the bracket Randall Waters faced Reeder, Waters was deemed at fault after contact on his chase run giving Reeder the win to move him into the Finals. The finals was anti-climatic as Vankirk experienced mechanical issues on the first run forcing him out of the competition to give Reeder the victory and moving him into the top spot in the standings after two events.

“I’m overwhelmed. My team did awesome and I want to thank everyone that had a hand in my program this year and believing in me, ” said Travis Reeder, winner of PRO 2: Atlanta. “I’m feeling really blessed right now and am going try to keep it consistent into the next round to keep the momentum going.”

Formula DRIFT continues to Round 4: The Gauntlet at Wall Speedway on June 2-3, 2017.

Brody was in town for Formula Drift round 7 at Texas Motor Speedway.  I met Brody through the ASD Mob program a couple of years back.  Brody has been kicking ass in Formula D’s Pro2 competition and is on track to earn his FD Pro license.

Love this color scheme. The wrap was done by SBC Graphics in Washington state.
