Formula V8 World Series is in Jerez

October 26, 2016

My October surprise this US election year was completely unexpected: Europe has their own version of the World Series.  (For the free.)  October 29th and 30th.

Just trust me, this is official and they mean that you can bring your family for free.

I must be turning into my father because the words “free for the family” are like sweet music to my ears and command my full attention.  This weekend the Formula V8 World Series Festival is in Jerez de la Frontera and they have extended an invitation to all of the families in this wonderful city to participate in two days of racing.  You can download your free invitation and take as many as you need from here but my guess is that if you were in town, I would have known about it and already told you.

Jerez de la Frontera, Spain is really a city that loves their motor sports.  At first I thought that it was just motorcycles and bicycles but now I realize that the people aren’t afraid to let loose on their main avenues.  Jerez isn’t just the city of horses that happens to be named after the fabulous wines of the region.  Xerezanos-Jerezanos have also embraced some cool modern traditions.  Motor sports have been a big deal in Jerez for a while and now I am contemplating a whole new tag in my sports section.

Anyway, rock out to my self-filmed hype video when team AVF and pilot Alfonso Celis, Jr. took over the main street leading to the center of the city.  Enjoy this treat!

Tinkerbell’s Return: No More Kook

Tinkerbell’s Return: No More Kook

Kookboxx Surfboards is over.

Yeah, let that sink in for a little while.

This was us back in Virginia Beach when he started this whole Duct Tape Invitational thing with VANS.

Kookboxx finished. I could get into the whole story on here right now, but I’m not.

I just got off the phone with Mama Denise and she really broke it down, but there are some lingering issues that need to clear before the whole story gets out.  All you need to know right now is that the boys aren’t really doing Kookboxx anymore. I spoke with Joel earlier this morning so I knew that he was serious.  I was honestly in a state of shock when he told me, but after he explained it made perfect sense.  Sometimes you just have to move on and make a better way.  It doesn’t always make sense to dwell on the past when you already have momentum and you can keep on pushing. I’m not wearing anymore t-shirts, even though the logo was fresh.

As a matter of fact, this is the last time that I will use the Kookboxx name in a sentence.  I can’t now, anyway…  I’m rocking with the best.  You are still rocking with the best.

So yeah, kids.  That’s how it just went down.
