White sandy beaches, cool blue water and palm trees. Is that what comes to mind when we mention the words “Long Beach?” You won’t technically see any of those with the exception of palm trees in our latest blog roll of pictures but you will see a lot of unique rides. Our second year in a row visiting Auto Con and it doesn’t let us down. See why in the photos that follow below.
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!
