IAS Performance & Texas Tires And Parts VIP Invitational Drift Event – Is This a Long Title???

IMG_8477

 

It’s 80 degrees Fahrenheit and the sun is shining bright so does that mean drift off-season has ended? We don’t really get a winter in Houston so 80 degrees in February feels natural to us but that does not mean we have to like it right? Anyways any temperature higher than 80 degrees Fahrenheit normally signals as a siren call to all drifters here in the Lone Star State. Unlike other events that are in the competitive drifting category IAS Performance and Texas Tires And Parts has put together an event so that drifters of all kinds can get seat time, have some good ole’ fun and maybe attract new drift fans in to this sport.

Thank you to IAS Performance and Texas Tires And Parts for hosting this event, we look forward to many more!

Bear Dellinger – Drifter By Heart, Model By Desire – NonStopTuning

I introduce to you Bear Dellinger, she is a multi-talented import model who not only knows how to pose in front of a camera, but she also has a passion for building race cars and drifting. She currently owns a turbo 350z, 240sx S14 and a RB25 240sx S13 (Sponsored by Rivsu Imports). Import models who also own and know how to operate fast moving cars? Yes they do exist, look her up for yourself!

Bear Dellinger, yes that is her real name, currently resides in Georgia so her southern-style hospitality traits were very welcomed here in Houston as seen in the photo’s below. As you can tell this is the NonStopTuning edition pictures, Bear was very generous in doing a little impromptu photo shoot with us during the event. We thank her for sparing some time with us during Hot Import Nights in Houston as she is a real natural at modeling. Although don’t forget that she is quite of an adrenaline junkie. We dare you to ask about the cars she owns and how much she loves drifting!

You can read and see more about her in the below links.

Momentum MINI Cooper Launch Party: Bigger Is Better?

The MINI Cooper Clubman is quite of a strange character. Last year’s version had a multiple personality problem of trying to figure out if it was a hatchback or station wagon. This new 2016 model does not have this same problem. It is now bigger with updated design cues from the interior to the exterior. With it’s 6-door design and much more space to accommodate more passengers and groceries comfortably, MINI hopes to appeal to a broader market of customers.

We had exclusive rights to view the first MINI Cooper Clubman in Houston, Texas. Feel free to share and converse among friends about the 2016 MINI Cooper Clubman. Special Thanks to Momentum Mini, Spring Street Studios and their staff for this opportunity!
