We want to congratulate Rob Primo on earning his Formula D license this past weekend.  As one of the Top 4 finishers in the Evergreen Drift Pro-Am series, he was awarded his license to compete in the 2013 Formula Drift series.

The two Formula D teams that are based out of PSI, have returned or are on the way back from Vegas.  Kyle Pollard returned early this morning after a long drive.  

He did not make it as far as he would have liked but he still got in some good runs.  Here is a shot from Chris Minshall,

Most of the PSI team is out in Las Vegas, NV for Round 6 is Formula D.  This event is different from all the rest because it is held at night.  Kyle Pollard and Andrew Coomes both left with their teams early in the week to make the drive.  

Brian Hartsock, Ashley Durham, and Zach Leitzke accompanied Kyle on the long drive in the PSI truck and trailer.  They stopped for gas before getting to California, but they ran out gas near Area 51 and had to take the ruckus to get gas.  But after sitting in the desert for a few hours, they got back on the road and made it to Vegas.

With all the shows, races, and great weather we have been having, our dyno has been very busy. These two Toyota MR2's were just some of the vehicles.

During the summer, we see an influx of sandrails and offroad vehicles and this season is no exception. Along with the turbo Polaris RZR project we have been working with John Reed Racing, there have been several sandrails in for tuning.

A couple of weekends ago, a few of us from the shop headed up to Pacific Raceways in Kent, WA for the NHRA Northwest Nationals.  A few weeks before this event, we made it down to Woodburn Dragstrip to watch the Outlaw 10.5 1/8th mile drags.  Those cars were fast but the dragsters at the Northwest Nationals were even faster.

A couple of weekends ago was the annual air show at the Hillsboro International Airport.  During the week, we could see the planes flying over practicing for the weekend.  After work on Friday, we went down to check it out.  We usually go during the weekend but this year some of us were heading up to Pacific Raceway for the NHRA drag races.  We got there as the sun was going down, but we still got to see some planes fly.  The main thing that sets Friday apart is the fireworks display.  Here are a few photos we got.

This is the latest project that we have been working with John Reed Racing on.  It is a turbocharged Polaris RZR.  We handled design and fabrication of the turbo kit and John Reed handled the wiring and tuning.

This past weekend our photographer went out to Woodburn Dragstrip for the Night of Fire.  One of our friends, Wally, brought down his twin-turbo Ford Mustang to compete in the Last Man Standing Outlaw 10.5 competition.  There was a large, $10k payout and it attracted a lot of big competition.
