The winner of the Import Face-Off Burnout competition tore the track up at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison IL. Many were saying it was the longest you can possibly go without your tires catching on fire or ripping off the rims.
Import Face Off, organized and owned by Cliff Wallace, began in 2001 and is now the largest, national Import show and race series in the U.S.

St Louis Exotic Car Show was free and happened to be the biggest exotic car show in the Midwest which had around 80 super cars on display at The City Foundry STL. The Auto Show was organized by the ND4SPD Car Club in collaboration with the Viper Club, the Ferrari Club, Lamborghini Club to name a few.
The Ride of the Century was spectacular and people in cars were waving and cheering them on as they drove passed us at the light at Bates and Broadway in South St. Louis. They had a police escort which made it so much more safer for the kids and young men riding which everyone appreciated. Maybe next year the STLPD can add some of their own bikes to help with the escort. The STLPD collaborating with the riders was needed for all of us.
Not only did it make things safer for all of us, it allowed us to put a guard down for minute. The worries about the pandemic and life in general were put on pause for a moment allowing us to escape our worries and fears without drugs or alcohol.
I would gather that there were fathers and sons riding together. I would give the earth to ride with my father anywhere God rest his soul. I sometimes think if we leave fear and hate behind and just watch how much fun this group is having, you may find more positives than negatives. I admit it looks dangerous and people can get hurt but this is something we all risk just going out the door each day.

The four day event was crazy-cool. I am pretty sure Mike Weiss, owner of Big Shark Bikes in St. Louis, is the main guy behind it. Mike’s bicycle shop is also a sponsor for the Gateway Cup. The pace of the event was incredible and it ran like a fine tuned machine without a hitch. It reminded me of Nascar racing and just as exciting. The bikes were going so fast, I couldn’t even pan my camera fast enough. If you live in St. Louis, this event is a must see. Visit Gateway Cup for more information.

Downtown St. Louis has been losing residents for years and so has St. Louis county but not as much. On the flip side, St. Charles has been gaining people for decades and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. I remember back in the 80s when Laclede’s Landing was filled with people but there wasn’t a pandemic either.
Although, we can’t prove that people are moving from the City of St. Louis to St. Charles, what we can conclude with these numbers is that people are moving out of the City of St. Louis in droves with no signs of slowing down either.
The St. Louis City Police Department have done what they said they would do which was to increase police presence along Washington Avenue in Downtown St. louis. A video records numerous police vehicles and surveillance cameras on Sunday, August 29, 2021.
International Tap House in the Delmar Loop on Delmar Blvd. is ready for business. We took a sneak peak this morning and it looks like the decorators/designers really did a wonderful job with the place.
