I want to put this out there from the beginning: I have never seen the 1990 Tom Selleck western, Quigley Down Under, which features the aforementioned actor portraying an American cowboy and sharpshooter hired by an Australian to kill off the Aborigines people from long distances.

Held at Gateway Motorsports Park just outside of St. Louis in Madison, Ill, the event served as the first shake down of 2013 for many drivers. More after the jump!
Team OMGDrift driver Odi Bakchis likes to stay busy during the offseason. Between running Feal Suspension, testing for Formula D and getting out to Pro-am events, he hardly has time for anything else.
But his dedication shows when he hits the track. Take a look at this video that he just dropped, and see for yourself what his normal routine consists of.
