If you’re a regular reader of the Bandit, or if you’ve just found out about us and decided to catch up by doing a deep dive through the archive, you’d find a lot of classic car material, or posts dedicated to good people doing fantastic work within the car community.
This leads to the oft-arrived upon perception that the Bandit is a little too old school. Well, here’s the antidote to that.
Over the weekend, a good friend mentioned an event taking place at a local track. The track was Irwindale Speedway and the event was the Hoonigans’ Culture Clash with a “Burnyard” being the center of attention. In case you’re wondering, “Burnyard” means exactly what you think it means.

We really don’t care… mostly because we were cheering too! So, for your enjoyment (or bemusement?), here are a few postcards from the weekend.
