If y'all know me, you know I can get a little antsy. After what seemed like an eternity, we finally got to roll the Hogs Top Fuel Harley bike out for a qualifying run. How this works in the NHRA world of motorcycles is that each team gets three runs. Keep your best time of the three, and then the top 8 move on to a tournament style round on Sunday.
The first time Hogs & Heifers Saloon sponsored Michael Beland and company, they qualified 5th out of 16 bikes at Thunder Valley in Bristol. That's fuckin' impressive. This gave everyone high hopes leading in to the Northwest Nationals. Let's fuckin' do it!
I followed the team all the way to the starting line. That shit was intense. That shit was loud. That shit was hot! Did I mention the temperature at track level was 131 degrees? That's fuckin' hot people. Dense clouds of exhaust and tire burnout polluted the air, for once Washington didn't smell like pot... And boom, we're racing!!
Well... I would like to say we flew down the track over 200 miles an hour and posted a time good enough to qualify for Sunday, but that's not what happened. Fuck this round. That's why the drag racing gods give us a few rounds to fine tune some shit. Word from the pit says we needed a heavier clutch. Two more qualifying runs from Saturday coming up!
I'll be hanging with Hogs during bike week in Las Vegas early October... Follow me! \/ \/ \/ \/
My name is Cameron Smith, this is my photography studio and farm! We specialize in events, portraits, cocktails and dive bars.. Based in the ATL with frequent trips to Las Vegas and Portland Oregon, we like to city hop. Design, writing, are more things we do on the farm. From blogs to photo books, and below average art that consists mostly of ink drawings, we're creative folks. We're also crazy enough to be house photographers with Hogs & Heifers Saloon in Vegas AND Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans....We see some crazy shit! When not taking pictures of said crazy things, or planning a wedding celebration on a future ranch, you can find us in our garden with the dogs and cats.
Living the green life in East Atlanta for now, Smith Farm in Northern Georgia the future??
