While we love t-shirts as much as the next laundry-avoidant person, every now and then we like to let loose and race with our favorite racing organization: American Endurance Racing. AER is returning to Palmer Motorsports Park this weekend, June 14-16, for a weekend of rocking endurance racing!

That being said, your favorite shirt-slingers won't be in attendance (our Miata? It looks a bit like a jigsaw puzzle). But not all hope is yet lost! We can cheer on our AER brethren with 8380's event shirt, and you can too by grabbing the official AER Palmer 2019 design until Sunday night at 11:59 ET PM!

AER Palmer

While things in the mountain can get a bit rocky, the proverbial Sherpas at Stable Motorsports will be there to lend you a hand (or sell you a HANS). So whether you'll be out there Apexing Everything at Palmer or just following along, stay in the loop with #AER19Palmer. As always, stay safe and Apex Everything in our honor!

Keeping Things Analogue 

Thanks to all the DIY (drive it yourself) enthusiasts who fabbed up some truly fab idea and designs for the My Self Driving Tee Design Contest with Autoblog! You all had your own way of saying no to auto-no-my, but it was "Shifty Business" by Jason Tracewell that most clicked into gear, and is available on our site from now thru May 1st.

Shifty Business


Congrats to the artist, who will be racing home with a Traxxas 4-TEC Mustang to match his own, and to the runners up: Cameron Pace and Bryan West, whose work may become the next manual tee!

Science of Shifting Do It Myself

25 Champ-tee-ons Till 4/2

Spring means it's time to put down the controller and do battle royal with some real tarmac! No matter what track you're dropping, these freshly resto-modded tees will be your wingman while you slay corners. The Apex Everything Sale includes your 4 Carch Madness champions in the loot box of 25 tees, as well as new equipment and other accessories from Thursday, March 28 @ noon ET through Monday, April 1.

The Apex Everything Sale is also brought to you by partner designs from The Smoking Tire, Johnny Lieberman, and Hooniverse! Support your favorite automotive personalities with these sweet drops.


Hopefully, the only air you'll be getting on track this year will be in the form of some downforce, but just in case, consider flight-prepping your ride with the Blip Before Shift Keychain.

A New Kind of Bracket Racing

The BSAA (Blipshift Apparel Administration) needs your help! There are only 4 coveted slots left on our team of 25+ shirts getting a rebound in The Apex Everything Sale at the end of the month, and it's up to you to vote for who stays and who goes.

Every weekday from now until March 22, we'll be laying up a new pair of potential tees, for a total of 12 rounds. The images for each design represent the final jersey they'd don in the sale, so it's up to you to vote for what makes the cut and what has to go back to tryouts. So grab those clipboards and put on your best Dad hat, it's time to play coach!

And Across The Line!

Thanks to all the adrenaline-fueled idea and design submitters who laid it all on the racing line for the Open 24 Hours Tee Design Contest! The driving was close, where it was ultimately "All Night Long" that pulled ahead and took the podium.

Congra-tee-lations to Chris Holewski, who'll be driving home with a day of racing school thanks to partnership with the fellow apexers at Skip Barber Racing School and Racer Magazine. Look for the design to hit shirt shelves on March 28.

All Night Long


Better save some champagne for Markus Lewtschuk and Simon Gutkovich too, whose works scored them runner-up status! They swiped some sweet BS credit, and their designs may be made into a full-fledged tee in the future.

Extra Ways to Apex Everything

No, we're not talking about those elfish triangles, 70's soul groups, or three-barrel carburetors. We're talking about the Next Level Tri-Blend tee, now available as an option across all of our designs!


25 To Schleife Tri Blend


So what's the deal? These super-soft hipster-friendly tees are made from 50% polyester, 25% cotton, and 25% rayon, with a subtle weave pattern similar to our heather grey tee. Color options are somewhat different than the Fitted and Heavy Duty options, so be sure to check the slice at the bottom of a design page to see how it compares.

Sizing is almost identical to that of the Fitted style, but with a bit more of a "drape" and stretch to the fabric to show off those gains at the tuning shop.
