Team Lucas Oil, Mav TV, and Rayno Film in Long Beach Formula Drift Pro Championship Round 1 at Tech with Kevin Wells and Doug Artus.
Looking sharp before hitting the track!
The crew at Bink Industries kept busy during the off season upgrading suspension with more angle, rear mount radiator, rebuilding front and rear end, quick change rear end, new plumbing, harness, fabricate new bars with Titanium Metal Supplies, paint and body work at Sam’s Auto Land, Aeromotive fittings, Feal Suspension, Vortech Supercharged engine built by Duttweiler Performance with Brodix Cylinders Heads, Crower Performance Products, JE Pistons tuned on Holley EFI unit pushing 1125hp and the list goes on and on! Nate Haugh, Shine Lopez, Francis Lalangan and Jeff Lansdell definitely had their hands full completely rebuilding the s13 during the off season to focus on chasing that championship this season!
“Getting behind the wheel of the 1100+hp drifting machine was refreshing and at the same time a great amount of adjusting to this new animal!” says Joon Maeng.
Team Lucas Oil, Mav TV, and Rayno Film is a fan favorite spot in the pits for all ages! With dedicated fans from all these years, the Team is ever so thankful to have support from all of their amazing fans!
It was such a meaningful moment for the crew at Bink Industries to see the Lucas Oil Mav TV Rayno Film S13 on track smoking up those Maxxis Tires and screaming out 1100+ hp out of the exhaust. This was a joyful and exciting point for the team.
Joon and the crew always enjoy spending quality time in the pits with Brother Zac, Tom Bogner and of course all the fans / partners! The Team is so thankful to have everyone’s support and inspiration to pursue the dream!
The weekend was looking very smooth! It was filled with many interviews from the media and also many practice runs before qualifying! The runs were looking better as the day went by. Joon was definitely getting the hang of the new machine but he seemed not quite 100% with the new setup.
During qualification round it took Joon, his crew and many others in shock! Joon ended up running a little too hot in the main sweeper and got in contact with the furious Long Beach Grand Prix K-rails that hurt the car enough not to continue on into the next session.

Thank GOD Joon and the crew are not hurt! The crew at Bink Industries is working hard to get the Lucas Oil Mav TV Rayno Film S13 back up to come out strong for Formula Drift Round 2 in Road Atlanta!
The team is so grateful to have Sam’s Auto Land’s support with all the body and paint work.
“I’m so Blessed to have such a dedicated crew and support from all of our amazing partners / fans to keep us going strong! Thank you all for having Faith and support in us! Looking forward to seeing you all in Road Atlanta!” says Joon Maeng.
It’s great to see a smile and a positive attitude from Francis Lalangan and crew!
“I’m so thankful to be driving for such a phenomenal crew at Bink Industries!” says Joon Maeng.
Joon at Driver’s Autograph session with fans who waited hours in line to meet all drivers in person to have their autographs and many different accessories signed. Although it was a rough weekend, the crew showed positive energy to come out with full force for the next round and continue to chase that championship!
