FD_Wall_Saturday-10

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF., January 29, 2014 – We are proud to announce that Kenneth Moen will be partnering with Bridges Racing in the 2014 Formula Drift season. “I’m really excited to work with Kenny this year,” said Bryan Bridges. “He’s caught my eye over the last couple of seasons with his aggressive driving. He is very passionate and just wants to drive, the same as the rest of our guys. I think he’s going to make a great addition to our team, hope fully we can provide him with the tools he needs to make that final push for a podium.”

He will be campaigning a 700whp 2jz powered Nissan S14 240sx built by Limitless Motorsports. Moen will join the likes of Daigo Saito, Robbie Nishida, and Dean Kearney on Team Achilles this season. “We are excited to welcome Kenneth Moen to the Achilles family for this season, and cannot wait to see him create a ton of smoke with his Achilles 123S tires,” said Cheralyn Hale, Director of Marketing for Achilles Motorsports LLC.

Kenneth has won numerous competitions in Europe including the Norwegian Powerdrift Championship in 2008 and 2009, the Nordic Drifting Championship in 2010, the Falken Cup in 2012, and the Breisladden Powerslide Competition an amazing six times. His Lillehammer hill climb video is one of the most viewed drifting videos with over 1.4 million views. “I’m really happy to be working with Bryan Bridges and Bridges Racing in 2014. Working with a team with such a long history of success puts me where I need to be as a driver!” said Moen.

Kenneth Moen’s sponsors include Achilles Radial, Badass Parts, Deatschwerks, Feal Suspension, Nuke Performance, Sellholm Tuning, Turbo by Garrett, and Wisefab.

Some of these might hit you right in the feels, but just be glad it didn’t happen to you (unless you’re one of the drivers we featured, and then, well, it did). More after the jump!

Year-End Dopeness >>> My Year In Review: 2013 Edition

With 2014 looming on the horizon, I feel it’s a good time to take a look back on my 2013 year with OMGDrift for the practically obligatory and as-expected year-in-review post. I hit up fewer events this year, only nine in total, and only traveling about 6,600 miles this year compared to 11,000+ last. Yet as I pushed the odometer on my trusty old ’97 LS400 closer to 200K, it seemed the events I DID cover made up for lack of quantity with an increase of quality. More after the jump!
