This is a media application for the July 4-6, 2016 No Star Bash event hosted by and Drift Indy, Midwest Drift Union and Street League Drifting at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, MI.

Please note that media credentials are in high demand, and to ensure the safety of our guests, we will be limiting the amount of media and staff at Gingerman Raceway’s restricted areas. Those applicants representing an established media outlet will be given priority over those with no affiliation. Applicants who provide examples of previous work that demonstrate their ability to capture vehicles in motion but who are not affiliated with an established outlet will be given second priority. We understand this is a weekend of no-pressure drifting and fun, but simply owning a camera and having a Facebook photography page is not grounds for media access: a reasonable level of quality and professionalism is expected. Therefore, in an e-mail to, provide the applicable, via attachment or link:

  • Photographers: provide at least five examples of your ability to capture action shots
  • Videographers: at least one two-minute video of previous, related work

  • At least one written reference from an automotive track organization(s)and/or reliable publication(s); or provide a portfolio of work from a reliable print or reliable online publication; a copy of the article/screenshot must be attached.
  • References should be able to speak of applicant(s) skills and dependability, the nature of relationship, and their contact information for confirmation.
