It has been about 10 years since the ShockerRacingGirls began to form into this nationwide phenomenon that it is today. Back in 2006, we started partnering with photographers, like Chromalusion Photography, from all over the country and having them shoot in our now famous ShockerRacing bootyshorts. It wasn't until 2012 that we actually began incorporating a full featured article and actually getting to know more about the photographers, car owners, and of course the models. Over the past four years we have had the please of getting to feature some amazing ladies but these eight articles have proven to be fan favorites.
Back in April, we were contacted by Rusty from McNeile Photography regarding an upcoming photoshoot he had scheduled with Karissa Davis in Tampa Bay, FL. ShockerRacing had previously featured some of McNeile Photography's work on our Instagram page but we had never worked with Rusty before. We knew he was capable of shooting some amazing pictures and after locking in the details, Rusty and Karissa ordered up one of our tank tops and a pair of the famous ShockerRacingGirls Bootyshorts. They then enlisted Chris Perez to bring his BMW 535i and Ken Jackson to bring his 2008 VW R32 out for the shoot!
There is definitely something going on this year. It seems that almost every time I sit down to put together the next ShockerRacingGirls feature, it just happens to be the latest girls birthday! This time was no different... I began working on Skyler Baggett's feature on Saturday morning. For those that are unaware of my process for creating these features there is a lot that goes in to each article. Once I have received the photos from the photographer I then add our ShockerRacing.com watermark, size them properly for the website, then upload them to the site. After the photos are all set I do my best to learn as much information as possible about Skylar, the photographer Octane Empire, and then gather all of the details about the car we are featuring. This morning as I sat down to begin writing, I realized that yesterday was Skylar's 23rd birthday! Hopefully releasing her feature today will be the perfect way to end her birthday weekend!
Our friends at Omega Motorsport brought their Half Mile racing event back to Illinois on April 30th and May 1st. The event titled NoFlyZoneMidwest was a two day sell out event with much anticipation. You may remember that we attended NoFlyZoneMidwest in the Fall of 2015 with our C7 Z06 and had eagerly been waiting for this event as the Z had been equipped with some new mods. Unfortunately, the weather on Saturday did not cooperate this time and based on the forecasts we decided not to bring the C7 Z06. The crew at Omega did everything in their power to get the event to run on Saturday, including hiring a helicopter to fly over the track and dry it out but with no luck as it continued to rain. Sunday morning was another gloomy day but the rain had passed and by morning the track surface had begun to dry out. By race time, the track was ready to go and Sunday turned out to be an amazing day of racing. We will be posting all of our media from this event here so be sure to keep checking back as we update it with videos and photos!
Back in February, Megan Lyda joined the team over at Atlanta Custom Wraps(ACW) and somehow managed to steal the attention away from their 1000+ C7 Z06 Corvette! In her previous feature, Megan informed us that her dream car is a C7 Z06 but after letting ACW have their way with her 2005 Roush Mustang we had to get her posing in front of her own car. Ms. Lyda had left her Stang with the team at Atlanta Custom Wraps for a custom wrap and told them to surprise her. She had no idea what they had planned but when she returned to pick it up she was absolutely amazed! Meg's jaw dropped to the floor when she first saw this amazing color shifting wrap.
We recently swapped out the hideous stock 18" wheels that came on our 2016 Porsche Cayman 981. We opted for a set of Gloss Black 19" O.Z Leggera HLT Wheels. The fronts are 19x8.5 and the rears are 19x10's. For tires we opted for a set of Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Positions. The front tires are 235/40/19's and in the back we went with the 285/35/19's because the 275's weren't quite wide enough for the 10" wide rear wheels. The 285's fit the wheels perfectly and give a much more aggresive look from behind. With this setup we opted for a full set of new Tire Pressure Sensors so that we could keep the stock wheel and tire set complete. After mounting the new set on our Cayman it was necessary to reset the TPMS so that it would connect to the new sensors. Hit the jump to see the video showing the process.
Changing the clock in your car can be a bit of a pain. Especially with daylight savings and having to Spring forward and Fall back every year. Sure, you could pull your owner's manual out of your glove box but these days people want to be able to do a quick Google Search and find a nice quick video showing us how to do even the simplest things. That's why we put this quick video together, even though changing the clock on the Porsche Cayman 981 is very simple. Hit the jump to see the video:
25 year old, Karisha, goes by the name @MustangKarisha on Instagram. She currently drives a blacked out 2000 Ford Mustang GT, and tells us that her dream car would be an Eleanor Mustang. Karisha is clearly a Mustang lover, but for her ShockerRacingGirls photoshoot she decided to dance on the dark side. She met up with photographer Chris Auditore and Dale Womack who brought along his 1972 Chevy Nova SS to make some magic.
Our resident badass ShockerRacingGirl, Bex Russ, just recently shot her second feature for SR. This time she met up with Dave Warner at Route 37 Photography and they brought along a bright orange Lotus Exige owned by Jameson Willoughby. They found a discreet location on top of a parking garage in the DMV area and the weather was absolutely perfect.
Andrea Kuoni has a lot to celebrate this month. She is currently Miss April in the 2016 Tilted Kilt Calendar, she is turning 21 years old on the 10th, and of course she is now the latest ShockerRacing Girl!
Back in January, our friends at BA Entertainment contacted us about a special photoshoot opportunity at Extreme Custom Collision. This event would feature some amazing cars and they were looking for some great models and photographers to work with. By sheer luck we were able to coordinate with the beautiful Ms. Kuoni and our friend Chuck, from C Mahla Photography. This pair along with a handful of incredible vehicles, that includes an Underground Racing Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, was pure fire!
