Scenes From Final Bout

We had a blast at Final Bout, we met lot of awesome people and just had an overall awesome weekend. It embodied everything we love about drifting in one event. From hanging out with everyone at local bars to the action on the track these are the photos we had left over from the weekend. […]

A Weekend in Michigan

There are 52 weekends in 2015 and about half of those are good enough for racing here in Michigan. Of course there are going to be multiple events on several of those weekends, and for the second year in a row I’ve been torn between two big events.

East Coast Bash

Back in 2013 fellow Blaster Eric and I made a last minute snap decision and drove from Michigan to Jersey overnight to make East Coast Bash the following morning.  Now I’m back in NY, an official Blaster and back to ECB in just a couple hours.  Now before we get to the opposite side of […]

Bakchis Takes Over at Formula D Atlanta

After some time to reflect, I still think this was the best round of Formula D I’ve seen to date. Jersey last year was a good one, as was Irwindale in 2011, but this one was the best. For starters, Road Atlanta has always been my favorite Formula D track just from a visual perspective. […]

No Star Bash

I’ve grown up with NASCAR, CART and the American Le Mans Series. I wasn’t introduced to drifting until the early 2000s, but I had very little personal contact with it. I rarely saw it on TV, and only came across some info in magazines. It wasn’t until 2007 that I really started to get into […]

Formula D Long Beach: Return of the Rockstar

The entire crowd was watching the Jumbotron as the white FR-S’s differential was lifted into place and the timer approached zero. Was ten seconds enough? How many nuts and bolts had to be tightened? Too many, I was sure. Would Ryan Tuerck be allowed to have extra time since his crew was so close to […]

Scenes from Tuerck’d Bash

After Formula D Evergreen, the Network A crew gathered up a bunch of Pro drifters and headed to a tiny go-kart track outside of Portland called Pat’s Acres Racing Complex.  The idea was to have a massive play-day with games, jam sessions, and cash prizes, and to film the premier of Tuerck’d Season 3.  …Life […]

Final Bout

Final Bout. An event that drift fans and drivers all over North America have been waiting for. An attempt at the largest grassroots drift event in America. Teams from Boston, Washington, California, Canada and a ton from Chicago all descended on a small town in Wisconsin to take part in making history.

The Opening of Thunderhill West

When I first heard Thunderhill was building an extension to its now-classic three mile course, I was both optimistic and skeptical. Would it be cool for drifting? Would it be cool for the 25? When I saw the initial plans, I was happy. It would be a lot of tight, technical turns and kinky straightaways. […]

Formula D New Jersey and the Rise of the Hammer

At the halfway point of the 2014 Formula D season, things are getting interesting. Chris Forsberg managed to get on the podium for an unprecedented fourth time in as many rounds, Fredric Aasbø got his first event win, Odi Bakchis earned his first career podium finish, and Vaughn Gittin, Jr. was about as far from […]

2 Bash 2 Future

Last year’s Bash to the Future was one of the funnest events I’d been to in a long time, or maybe ever. It wasn’t just the track, but all the people who went that made it awesome. We were all disappointed when it wasn’t going to happen again this year, but then, with just six […]

ClubFR Drift Day 47 at USA International Raceway

It’s that time of year again, the smell of spring is in the air and drifters from all over the upper Midwest descend upon the USA International Raceway in Shawano, Wisconsin; marking the start of ClubFR’s 11th season hosting drift events in the Midwest.

Formula Drift Tech Day 2014 at Source Interlink

Source Interlink Media hosted their 3rd Annual Formula Drift Tech Day where many of this year’s FD drivers could get their cars inspected before the season starts. This cuts out the hassle of having the car teched the weekend of the event, and it’s also where a lot of new builds and liveries are unveiled for […]
