If you’ve ever been to a pro-am event, chances are you’ve seen a wide range of cars turn up, ranging from nearly stock daily drivers to fully built Formula D spec rides. One might make the assumption that it’s these high horsepower, competition focused builds which are sure to consistently be the winners. But proving you don’t have to throw down huge horsepower figures and expensive builds to make it to the top, Rolando Alfaro took his backup car to a second place finish in Midwest Drift Union this year, netting him a Pro 2 license for 2015.

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

December 24, 2013 • By

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!

2012 Dopeness >>> Midwest (And Beyond) Year End Recap (56K Death)

December 21, 2012 • By

Well, I seem to still be alive, and if you’re reading this, I assume you are too. No doomsday apocalypse here, so to celebrate, I present my year-in-review post. I traversed nearly 11,000 miles and spent over $1,100 in fuel, on top of hotels, food, camera gear/repairs/rentals, supplies, etc. The end result of those expenditures follows (you’ll find links to each event’s main article within).
