Through IAS Performance with Texas Tires and Parts brings to you a driver invite only drift event. This happens only once a year during off-season due to the fact that both drivers (Randall Waters and Rudy Martinez) are heavily involved in Formula Drift and Lone Star Drift Pro-Am during on-season. So what is this Bash event? An all out exhibition so drivers can get all the practice both solo and tandem drifting in to hone in on their craft on all levels of experience. Thanks to Houston Police Academy for lending the track for this event!
Here is a look at what went down! If you are the driver of any of these cars or know any of them please direct them here for HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTOS!
P.S. It’s Thanksgiving so lets give Thanks the hosts of this event Randall Waters, Missy Waters, Dewayne Ramsey and Rudy Martinez!
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.
TX86DAY is a wrap! We had over 100 86′, BRZ, FRS drivers plus special guest Formula Drift veteran Taka Aono at this event. We also had over 20 media outlets doing their photo and video thing. The success of this event has spawned major feedback from fans and drivers to do this event again next year. We agree with the positive feedback and look forward to event bigger plans for our TX86DAY in 2017!
With collaboration of Strange Rhythms we were able to bring you our coverage of TX86DAY. I will continue to do my best to have all of the media outlets out at our event as much as possible. I enjoy giving the new and current media outlets the support and shine as much as I like to cover the event my self. See everyone again next year and watch out for even more media support at our events in the near future!

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.
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!
1000 cars jam packed in downtown, isn’t it awesome? Party on Canal Street with the hottest and baddest modified cars. Bigger and better is how we do it in Houston. The night before the infamous WekFest Car Show. This is what happens when the hottest rides from in and out of town arrive at one address for some Chinese food from the Rice Box food truck!
