BMW 328Ci with Status Racing Seats Featured in Performance BMW Magazine

Here at Status Racing we are huge fans of the BMW E46 and Chase Donnelly’s 328iCi is among one of our favorites! His BMW is far from just any another 3-series on the road and that is mainly because Chase has spent over a decade building every inch of the car.  He shared these images with us from when the car was featured in Performance BMW Magazine. It showcases a set of Status Racing carbon fiber Ring GT seats in a Icon Configuration. Check out the photos below and the mod list below!

Jeepspeed Crashes during the Mint 400 Race

We introduced you to Joey Miller and his Jeepspeed that was using our Status Racing Harnesses awhile back. Well this time the unfortunate happened when he rolled his Jeepspeed during the Mint 400 race. We are glad to hear that everyone walked away and was unscathed during the accident. Here are some photos of the aftermath.






Jeepspeed Racer Takes 3rd Place Secured with Status Racing

The Jeepspeed races are pretty unique in the rules and regulations to keep competition down to the driver.  Our sponsored driver, Joey Miller, took to the dirt this past weekend in his red Jeep Cherokee built truck and finished in 3rd place.  Joey is rocking a set of Status Racing red 5 point harnesses.  Our 5 and 6 point harnesses are FIA approved so they are legit and stylish at the same time.  The rotary release buckle makes it easy to get in and out and the shoulder belts tighten and loosen with simply lifting up or pulling down on the straps.  Congrats to this team!  Check out some of the pictures below.
