Cool spring weather, nice cloudy day, and the pleasant smell of burning rubber all up in your nostrils. You know it will be a good day!
April 20th 2013, Friction Motor Sports out of OKC and SticktoDrifting.com held their second Drift event. Red River Shootout 2, was held in Stroud Oklahoma. It was my first time at a drift event (vhx) and I gotta say, pretty legit stuff to watch. I would much rather be in the passenger seat getting all the second hand action but I had to “sticktophotography” and capture all the legit drifts.
Everyone brought their own tools for the quick fixes and extra set of wheels and tires. I was also quite surprised at the set up they had onsite for quick tire change. Everything was well planned, even the location was a perfect spot. Right off the highway, close to gas station, and had a grill and NOS Energy on site.
There were some good drifters out and about, Texas especially came out hard, Oklahoma as well! A few people had problems with engines and parts flying off but that’s what its all about. Build, Race, Break, Build again.
Also had a small Stance meet but not much showed up since it was a drift event. Twisted Illusions and a couple of guys from SLO Crew came out for the event.
Pro or not at the end of the day everyone had a good time sliding sideways and burning rubber. Until next time play it safe and Sticktodrifting!

As a father, you will have to put plans on hold or put them off for family comes first. That goes for anything from sports to hanging out with friends, clubbing to going out to bars, or building your dream car. For Vang Houa Xiong, being a family man he had to put his car on hold while he raises his two sons. Slowly but surely he was still putting work into his car for the passion never died. Vang has been building his 2004 Scion xB for the past 2 years and finally has it to where he is satisfied
If you made it out to Stroud, Oklahoma this Sunday – then chances are you were attending the drift event out there.
Feb 17th was the date set for drivers to come from all around at the chance to slide around legally and smoke tires.
From stanced, to stock, to chopped and modded to slide – there were all sorts of cars coming out to get sideways.

December was a great month for the kids of OKC thanks to Team Diverse hosting their first meet at PCO.
There were all sorts of cars who came out to support and bring toys for the children in our area.
Big thanks to everyone who showed up and were respectful to the cause and location.
Friends from Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas decided to get together and have a good ol’ fashioned meet of various groups and clubs. FINALLY – I got enough good viewer, fan, and ethusiasts pictures compiled to see many of the cars that were at the meet to show their support.
Big thanks goes out to Lower Class, TheFittedAgency(DFW/OKC), STANCEHOUSE, DIVERSE, dfweuros, and everyone who came out!
Expect bigger and better coming in 2013 and everyone have a great end of the year.
A lot has been going on in the local drift scene!
Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas are all getting into the act.
Here’s some Oklahoman Produced video’s from mineral wells
and a big turnout at an Arkansas event hosted by Friction Motorsports.
This first video was made by my good friend, Ben Gibson, from the long awaited event in drift-hungry Arkansas.
The second video is featuring a few Oklahoma Drivers from the guys over at STATTIC.NET
When i created OKSTANCE after getting into the stance scene in 08-09, i opted
to give an outlet to like minded enthusiasts who would otherwise never get exposure.
Originally I just wanted to rep for Oklahoma and lift it up on my shoulders to give us a spot in the stance scene.
Since then I’m seeing more and more awesome cars in the central/southern states
that are ignored and looked over, mainly because of the vastness of our scene.
In this instance, i found Max Krubsac and his gorgeous 2002 Civic in the state of Kansas.
He is a very talented photographer in addition to having such a tasteful Honda.
For obvious reasons, I wouldn’t feel right letting such talent be ignored.
So expect to see more from him and others in our region!
