Wekfest Chicago 2011

For those that don’t know, WEKFEST was originally an annual show that started off in a parking garage in Japantown, San Francisco.

They didn’t have too many vendors there assuring that the focus was on the…

Congrats to all the Winners. The KMS Drift Championship will be back at AMS on September 15th, the…
