AirREX x DaYUUM Hawaii Shoot

DSC_0388 copy

DSC_0284 copyI recently took a trip to Oahu, Hawaii for family matters; I stayed on the islands for two weeks so
you know I had to take advantage of this trip back home. During that time I was in Hawaii, I linked up with Marshall Lum to do a DaYUUM X Team AirREX Hawaii photo shoot. The day that Marshall and I both had time to meet up was at a meet and greet that “Vip’d Out” from Nor Cal put together. The weather was pretty crappy that day; it rained/drizzled for a good amount in the beginning of the meet. Later on that day, when the rain stopped, skies cleared up. Marshall showed up with his clean 2008 Scion xB, we talked for a bit then we ended up doing a quick photo shoot under the monkey pod trees in the park where the meet was being held at.

DSC_0319 copyThe following day Marshall announced a last minute meet and greet for a group shoot for Team Air
Rex Hawaii. The meet was held at Kapolei Wal-Mart, total of 11 cars came out that day, and that’s not even the whole AirREX Hawaii team. While everyone was catching up; talking stories, I had to put in work; I started to take individual shots. We then rolled out to the next location into barbers point where the Naval Hangars are, then found an abandoned warehouse to do the AirREX Hawaii group shots.

Fontana Nissan – Nissan RaceShop – 5 Meet

FontanaNissan5_0003To Fontana we go…

Lately, it seems like more and more grassroots automotive events are taking place at Auto Club Speedway. It’s where NASCAR’s Auto Club 400 is ran and where the IZOD INDYCAR’s MavTV 500 will race. The INDYCAR’s will race the 2 mile D-shaped oval at speeds of 180-220 MPH. Being in the stands during the early days of C.A.R.T., I’ve always had the itch to be on the inside of the track. It’s where the paddock was, where the action was, and where the behind-the-scenes took place. Several years later, perhaps even decades, it’s happened.

In collaboration with Speed Ventures, the inside area became the home of Fontana Nissan’s 5 Meet in 2013. Traditionally the annual meet was held at their dealership, but in 2012, it completely outgrew the allowed space. Not to mention all the prep work it takes to shuffle ALL the cars off the dealership lot to accommodate a meet or divert customers in a different direction – it’s understandable on why they decided to relocate. But does moving locations give it less of that homely feel? The underground feel? The lack of urgency? We thought it might, but it didn’t.

Fontana_Nissan5-9083It was the calm before the storm, the well organized event was right on time. Scott Vanderheide, the man that spearheads the meet, kept everyone informed about roll in time, from when the gates were going to open to how the event was laid out. Right before 11AM, Scott informed us and all the vendors that the gates were about to open. Once it did, a line of Nissan’s, like starving ants, came trooping in. One-by-one, pack-by-pack, these well behaved drivers filled the lot. GT-R, S-chassis, Z’s, and amongst others parked with their kind. A steady flow of spectators and participants walked the black top during this 100 degree weather that was easily distracted with the Nissan RaceShop Hunnies.

In between heat strokes and taking turns holding our tents down from the burst of winds that Fontana is known to have, Justin and I made a few rounds to capture some of the awesomeness 5 Meet had to offer.

Fontana Nissan’s – “Cuatro Meeto”

Kicking off DaYUUM’s string of automotive events this spring, our friends from Fontana Nissan invited us to attend “Cuatro Meeto” – A Nissan enthusiast extravaganza.  This is the fourth Nissan exclusive car meet put together by Nissan Race Shop Motorsports Director, Mr. Scott VanderHeide and

the ever-appealing time attack driver, Ms. Kerryann De La Cruz.  We would definitely not refuse the invite and expect any less than exciting from this dynamic duo. The Nissan race vehicles that they’ve built already show the work that they can put forth.  And if you don’t already know the established friendship all started with an exclusive Q&A feature interview with Ms. De La Cruz as well as Fontana Nissan’s very own FD drift driver, Mauricio Ornelas Jr.  So be sure to be on the lookout for more exclusives to come your way in the very near future…

Scoping out the meeting grounds of “Cuatro Meeto”, a squadron of Fontana Nissan race prepped vehicles welcomed every vendor and invitee at the event.

A variety of Zs were represented at the meet to support Fontana Nissan in addition to showing various modifications and styles people do to their rides.

 

Showing their brawn, a crew of Xterras and Frontiers arrived in full force.

A number of vendors were also in attendance at the meet – to name a few MotoIQ.com, Berk, Tanabe/SSR, Savinni, Susan Komen group and of course DaYUUM to name a few.

One of my personal favorites at the event was this pristine white S13 on SSR SP1 that totally broke a few necks.

The event wasn’t short of ol ‘skul too in attendance – with a mix of some VIP as well.

A crew of R35s joining in… I would say that was a million dollar line up.

And there’s our very own Van_DaYUUM_Paul, putting his photo skills to work for Instagram – who needs a DSLR when you’ve got your iPhone…

The event will not be complete without some eye-candy to feast our eyes on…

There’s the charming and DaYUUM’s feature model – Ms. Marissa Hiroko

Spunky Ms. Brittani was in attendance to support the event.

New mesmerizing favorites, Ms. Ashley Clark and Ms. Amanda Kerr.

And of course, we wouldn’t forget the sweet Claudia Lopez.

We complete and end the day with a good tan from the blazing heat at Fontana.  I am sure that we will definitely be back to support Fontana Nissan next year and their upcoming events.   As we continue the partnership, you can expect some good racing events, builds and exclusive features with the help from Nissan Race Shop head honcho, Mr. Scott VanderHeide.  We are very thrilled and looking forward to this…

Check out the event video coverage by PVR Motorsports’ – Mikey Dang.

Peace and until the next one…  -jayson
