Want to know the difference between a regular contest and a Volcom contest? Everything. The Nascar-themed Totally Crustaceous championships were held at Newport Beach over the weekend and not a (Volcom) stone was left unturned. Not one race car driving cliche left unexplored. Not one neck left pale. It was fantastic, and so was the surfing. 54th Street delivered a waist-to-chest-high fast track for the event and passing was not only allowed, but encouraged.

It was…
