On Sunday March 25, Northwest Nissans held Nissan Fest at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington. This event was the first of its kind for both entities and it was without a doubt a success. The event replaced a meet NWN had held in previous years at another location where turnout exceeded capacity. The track handled the drifting event with NWN help and NWmotiv.com handled the car show aspect. Did I mention the whole event was FREE to spectators?
On Sunday the 23rd of October cars from all over western Washington descended on SyKart in Tukwila for the monthly nw-built.com forum meet. Individuals and crews from Olympia to Seattle participated in a successful event. Well over 30 drivers showed up for the evening to show off their rides and to compete on the Karting track.
Last Friday’s meet at Cozy Bubble Tea in Redmond was in my opinion a complete success! There was a great turn out of cars and plenty of people to talk to. I came around 7:30pm thinking that I wasn’t going to be able to find parking but luckily I found one right in front of the Cozy Bubble Tea place!

Today’s meet up at The Landing in Renton was pretty sweet. I borrowed a fisheye lens from a friend so I knew I was going to have some fun with it for today. Some of us had gotten there early, so we were able to see everyone as they rolled in one by one. As expected though, as more cars came through, the more agitated the security got. Surprisingly enough, they didn’t kick us out right away. They gave us a fair warning that if someone were to come through revving their engines and/or going past 10mph then they were going to kick us out. We were all poking fun at what the security guard said, “Yup! They’re going to kick us out!” was what you would hear a lot of the time when someone came rolling up.
This past weekend, Speedware Motorsports in Redmond, WA hosted an alignment workshop to teach the public about what goes into a proper alignment. Everyone learned about camber, caster, toe-in and more from their knowledgable technicians.
A nice amount and variety of cars and people showed up for the event. There were refreshments to reward everyone for coming.
