The big day was here, all the planning we’ve been doing for the past three months has led to this day. Even if the event wasn’t going to be successful, we were just happy to reunite with our friends in Vegas. It’s been a long time since those days we use to take turns on who visited who each weekend and that was the honeymoon stage of our friendship. Even though the honeymoon phase is over, we still have mad love for each other.
We spent most of the morning getting over our hangovers and trying to get a quick power nap before the meet. That is why we like our car meets late in the afternoon. Check out the crew in all black everything, Jeff didn’t get the memo.

Sara and Hayle excited to meet and interview everybody.
Aron, the newest member of Royal Origin. He’s always been a nice guy and let’s us get it in whenever we want, so it was a no brainer when adding him.

This guy went cruised through our meet on hydraulics, it looked pretty cool jumping up and down.

Barely any parking for anyone, so we started to fill up the lanes with cars. #HOODRATstuff
Gerald worked tirelessly to get the rootbeerdc2 ready for the meet. He even made a vow that he won’t drink any Hennessy if it didn’t have the HOODRATstuff label on it. Gerald is the mother fucking man.
Slopps is always in Vegas like he has a DJ residency at a club, so we weren’t surprised to see he took the trip from SOCAL to the meet.
Throughout the meet, we were on the prowl to interview people about the meet and other random things.
Hayle interviewing Patrick from Autolifers. Thank you Patrick for covering our meet! You can check out his coverage here..

It was time for the big raffle, where we were raffling away prizes from our sponsors and everyone got a photo with their two favorite WCWs, Baeyle and Baera.

Lucky kid! Jon isn’t impressed.
Getting rowdy for prizes.

A lot of thought in this photo.

This time of the year is always the time where I stress the most and have the craziest anxiety attacks. This year however has been the least stressed for me with so much help this year, this meet went smoothly without me having to stress too much. Thank you to Kevin and HNRS for planning this collab, Shavi for working everything, VU with the coverage and giving us amazing IG videos, Nimo for taking care of us and giving us fun moments, Aron for all of the help, I notice all the small things you do for us and I’m truly grateful for it. Hayle and Sara for being our spokes models for the event, Jay and LV Racing for help with promotion and getting us a food truck, the Lowballers for always supporting our meets, JDM CHEMICALS, AVANT GARDE WHEELS, ILOVERACING, AWSTICKERS, LEXON, AIR RUNNER SYSTEMS, KYOEI, 714 TIRES for sponsoring the event, Becky for reassuring me when I did have a small anxiety attack, everyone in Royal Origin and their girlfriends who made this trip the best time of my life and most importantly everyone who supported us and came to the meet.
