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, welcome to my studio. I specialize in portrait photography, event coverage, and some say I have a thing for dive bars and cocktails.. Based in Atlanta with frequent trips to Las Vegas and Portland Oregon, I love to travel. Design and writing skills are some of the extra services I can bust out with my camera. From blogs to photo books, and below average art that consists mostly of ink drawings, I'm considered by my Mom to be an artist - whatever my Mom says goes! I'm also lucky enough to be the in-house photographer with Hogs & Heifers Saloon in Las Vegas, I've taken pictures of some wild shit! When not taking pictures of said crazy things, or planning a wedding celebration on my future ranch, you can find me in my garden with my wife and pets.
Living the green life in East Atlanta for now with big farm dreams on the horizon!
