Justin Pawlak Wall Rides of Long Beach

JustinPawlak.WallTap

Justin Pawlak compiled this wall ride photo of him tagging the Streets of Long Beach outside clipping point wall from 2009, 2011, and 2013. His 2013 Formula Drift season wound up in a bit of a disaster when he went too deep in his first qualifying run and wrecked the car. His team at RTS did get it repaired so he could make his second qualifying pass. Here are some videos to boot with these amazing pictures.
