17th Annual Import/LowRider Summer Slam

Tuesday 17 July, 2012 | By SNTRL

Ahhh the summer time. Just imagine, a place, where you can check out the girls in the bikinis, chillin on the sand, all while being surrounded by some of the most beautiful rides you have ever seen. Then take a short stroll, and check out some of the fastest drag racing ever, all while catching that summer tan. Sounds like a dream right? Well, go ahead and pinch yourself because if you are daydreaming, you probably missed out on the 17th Annual Import/Lowrider Summer Slam on June 30/July 1st.

It all went down at Englishtown Raceway Park in Old Bridge Township, New Jersey, and the OGS Camp once again, brought the best of the best together for all the show and race car fans. With an added twist, and a first of its kind, the “summer” in Summer Slam was emphasized by bringing the beach to Englishtown, complete with sand and the girls. On the stage behind them, Spazzo ft. DJ Magic, Chad B., David Rush, Nore, Fred Da Godson, DJ MPOS, DJ Jung and of course, the Master of Ceremonies himself, MC Slick tore it up for all the fans.

Intense competition in SFWD, Pro Stock, All Motor, 10.50 index, 11.50 index, Quick 32, Pro RWD and the bracket classes to go along with the East Coast’s best show cars, bikes and lowriders went on all weekend. Thanks to incredibly beautiful weather, there was no mistaking this was SUMMER SLAM. SNTRL’s Fam was on the scene capturing the weekend’s epic moments, behind the lens. Check out the photo coverage, and be sure to check out the rest of the photos in the full gallery at the end of this coverage post.

This RHD Supra was breaking necks all day. This old-school king still hasn’t lost its step.

Every time we see this K-swapped eg at the OGS events, she just gets better and better!

Love it or hate it, K is the way.

Head up racing at its best. Who can ask for more?

Shout out to Team Puerto Rico for making fans and photographers alike cheer for their hard work and success.

Team work on display all weekend.

Single-Digit passes were so common, driving home after the event, in a 12 second car was kind of a let-down.

Interesting badge. 4G63 power.

It’s not what’s on the outside that counts……

Googly Moogly

This is what it’s all about.

Next Up…HONDA DAY Englishtown! See you there, ladies and gentlemen.
