Sunday, July 22nd was open track day at Kings Park Speedway. Drifting is almost non-existent in Saskatchewan, so any track time in a safe and controlled environment is always welcome! Three of five cars that were drifting on Sunday were from Saskatoon. The guys made the day trip down just to shred some rubber and show their support for the local scene.
I hope to see more of these days around, I wouldn’t mind trying to learn on this track.
Street racing is frowned upon as we all know, but up here is Saskatoon they have made an outlet for those who feel the need to go as fast as possible in a straight line. Street legals is a class anyone can enter and race, cars, bikes and even trucks can enter as long as you pass tech you can race.
Hey everyone, I’m the new kid on the block, well technically the DODO guys have used my pictures before, but now I’m actually on the team. My name is Megan, I’m a photographer that lives in Saskatoon (at the moment) and loves vehicles.
I’ve been into cars my whole life, growing up I helped my dad on his classic ’56 Sedan Delivery. Then with photographing the drifting guys at the track I started learning about their cars and decided I wanted one. So I brought over a ’95 180sx and changed it to a Kouki Sileighty S13.4. It’s my project/fun/summer daily driver. I did track it, a few months after it came over…. it was a disaster . Let’s say I met the tire wall at least once. Since then, I haven’t had it on the track, mostly because we don’t have anywhere to drift around here. I have gotten a little better at drifting I’d say, but I am a LONG way from saying I can actually drift. Quite possibly in the future I’ll do an article on the progress of my car from start to current.
Besides my car I do have a dirt bike, it’s quite the love/hate relationship, I spend more time fixing it then riding it. The bike is a ’73 Yamaha 250TY. I’ve only gotten to ride it twice in the two years of owning it… quite sad I know, but problem after problem keeps popping up, I can’t expect much else of a bike that is almost 40 years old.
With that, here is my first go at posting. The Draggins Car Show was in Saskatoon not to long ago, and of course I took my camera. The following cars are some of the ones that stood out to me.
