11/17/2013 - The End of a Great Year

The end of another car show season is here. What a crazy, but wonderful year Team Absolute has had. We attended well over 20 shows with members placing in all of them. We had a member's car go to The SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Our 2nd Annual Kids Come First Car Show was a huge success! And most importantly, we gained 3 new members to the Team Absolute Family. This offseason looks to be really productive as far as modifications go, so check with us next February when we start the season off again to see what our members have done to their vehicles. We promise, it will be worth it! Have a great winter everyone! See ya'll next year!

11/06/2013 - Tuner Battlegrounds - SEMA

We would like to give a huge congratulations to our member, Frank, who made it all the way to SEMA in Las Vegas by making the top 4 of the Tuner Battlegrounds Competition by Performance Auto and Sound Magazine. Frank's ultra-widebody Camaro SS narrowly missed beating Salik's Scion XA at the show, but he gained a ton of new friends, sponsors, and memories to make the trip worthwhile. Next year, Frank's Camaro will be one of THE baddest Camaros on the East Coast. Make sure you check back next year to see what it looks like.

Today, Team Absolute Car, Truck, & Motorcycle Club attended the Green Family Motorcycle and Car Show Fundraiser. They had a great turnout and the rain held off, which is always a good thing. Looks like they were able to raise a decent amount of money for this great cause and we were glad to be a part of it. Congrats to Mike for winning 2nd Place Domestic and Paul for winning 1st Place 4wd.

The Kids Come First Car Show is rapidly approaching. Just 3 weeks away! Mark your calendars for September 7th and come out to Quaker Steak & Lube - Richmond to help us support the Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU.

07/20/2012 - Motorcycle Captain

Since we are starting to attract more motorcycles to the club, we felt it necessary to create a Motorcycle Captain position. Having served as Council Member for over a year and a half, and owning a motorcycle himself (07 CBR600RR), Steve was the logical choice. Congrats on the new promotion Steve!

Also, there is now a Council Member seat available and we will be voting to fill the position at the next meeting. Members eligible: Seamus and Frank. See you all then!

04/06/2012 - Car Show - Spring Showdown 2012

Team Absolute attended the 7th Annual Spring Showdown this past weekend in Buena Vista, VA. We have been competing at this car show since 2007. Diversified Ridez and East Coast Dynasty do a great job organizing this event and we hope that it gets bigger each year. The club games were great as usual; we got to compete in club participation games scheduled throughout the weekend. For the 3rd year in a row, TA dominated the Tug-O-War contest. We also won the amp toss and the hot dog eating contest. Unfortunately, we just narrowly missed winning Best Club for the second year in a row, since we were tied for first with points, it was decided that the club who had the most participating members should win Best Club. We will definitely be bringing that back home with us next year! Thanks to all the members and prospects that came out to support us.

The host clubs put on a very entertaining show and everyone had a great time, despite the unfortunate inclement weather that swept through on Saturday. The car show’s name “Spring Showdown” stayed true to its meaning with an action packed weekend of competitive club games. Our constant determination and perseverance allowed for Team Absolute to be crowned as the 2011 Spring Showdown Club Participation Winners. In addition to the points accrued by winning club games, we also received points for the amount of members registered at the show and for each trophy won in the car show competition.
