[COVERAGE] ImportExpo – Car Music Fest NJ

June 24th, 2022 by Elusive Media

ImportExpo returns to Island Dragway! And with this show being local to me, it was a must to attend. Weather was also perfect, sunny and 70F. As i was approaching the drag strip, no lie, a least a 1/2 mile away i could hear the music rumbling throughout the Great Meadows Valley. Once in side, you were pretty much blown away by some of these music setups and you could see why it be be heard from so far away. Everyone playing their music, getting their grill out, and cars lined up in circles, my ears and eyes just taking it all in. It was nothing that I’ve experience before. After trying to get my hearing back, I ventured into the car show. A wide verity of cars and ones I’ve never seen at other shows in the past. Always great to see new builds. After talking with the locals PD and staff, this show was larger than was expecting. And with it being Fathers Day, it sure did bring out the fans and participants. Enjoy the photos!

[COVERAGE] MotoAmerica New Jersey Round 9

September 14th, 2018 by Elusive Media

MotoAmerica continues at New Jersey Motorsports Park with many championships ready to be clinched, but with heavy rain and winds, mother nature wasn’t going to make it easy! This weekend reminded me of my first time attending MotoGP back in 2008 at Indianapolis, a Tropical storm race day. In this occasion, this was my first time attending MotoAmerica and both days mother nature was relentless in not giving us a dry race, But this did not stop everyone from viewing some top class racing. It’s still amazing me every time witness see a wet race and how fast these rides can go lap after lap on the edge. The next time you see a bad forecast for a race weekend at MotoAmerica, don’t worry, racing will continue and you will be in awe!

Congrats to Cameron Beaubier (Monster Energy/Yamalube/Yamaha Factory Racing) for taking this years 2018 Motul Superbike Championship (His third time), Alex Dumas (Monster Energy/Yamaha Extended Service/Graves/Yamaha) to clinching his Liqui Moly Junior Cup Championship and Andrew Lee (KTM Orange Brigade/JP43 Training) for securing his Stock 1000 Championship!

A special shout-out to Roger Hayden! He’s retiring after the next round in MotoAmerica and 20 years of racing motorcycles competitively. It was fantastic to see him race over the years along with seeing him racing in some wildcards in the past; MotoGP and Moto2. This also marks an end of an era for the 3 Hayden brothers. I will miss cheering them on from either the TV or attending a race!

WEKFEST hosts some of the cleanest builds in the US. Builds from exotics to muscle and everything in between. You won’t see any cars here that are not show and go ready. With limited amount of space at the expo, only the best will gain entry into the building. I’m always surprised to see so many new vehicles i haven’t seen this late in the season. WEKFEST definitely sets themselves apart from the rest!

[COVERAGE] Hot Import Nights NJ/NY

September 3rd, 2014 by Elusive Media

Hot Import Nights returns! After many years of seeing HIN listed for the NJ/NY region, it always seemed to get cancelled as the date drew closer. When i go back to thinking of car shows, HIN was always the show to mark down on your calendar. Hot Import Nights still separates themselves from every other show with the HIN Model Search contest, live bands, Vapor Lounge, and good atmosphere. HIN still keeps to their roots and has sections of the expo center set with low ambient lighting. In these sections, cars can show off their neon setups. Hot Import nights had a wide verity of cars. Neon, clean, classic, exotics; you pretty much had something for everyone. HIN coverage wouldn’t be complete without the models, so enjoy a mix of cars and models photos!
