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!

Driver Blog Dopeness >>> Jeremy Lowe at FDTX!!

I was really excited going into Round 6 of Formula D at Texas Motor Speedway. I knew it was going to be my last round of the season, plus it’s a new track, and I had nothing to lose. I felt really confident to go out there and give it hell! Going into the event we had the car running the best it ever has, buttt between testing and hitting the road for TX, we also decided to make a seemingly minor change and learned a very important lesson as a result.

Round 6 is in the books, and the first event at Texas Motor Speedway was full of surprises.
