My first driver’s blog of the season! I missed doing these things! For the rest of the season I’ll try to give a little personal insight on each round of Formula Drift.
After a rough offseason, the possibility of doing anything this year seemed pretty bleak. I ended last season with this grand scheme of changes I wanted to make for 2013, upgrades to the car, all of this offseason practice to become a better driver, a new truck, etc, etc. None of that was happening and I was thinking of just postponing my return to 2014. Then that turned into “Why am I being such a bitch? Why not just do 1 or 2 of the close to home events if I have the money at the time?” Then as luck would have it, 2 weeks before round 2 in Atlanta, some really awesome sponsors jumped on board, and we were off and running! We scrambled to get the car back together, loaded up our trusty 1984 Chevy dually, and hit the road. Then I blew it in Atlanta, but hey it’s been a while, and plus this is a Palm Beach recap, so who cares? Haha
After a disappointing first event at Road Atlanta, I was really looking forward to Palm Beach. It’s about as “home track” as it gets for us, and we had a pretty decent showing there last year, giving Rhys a good run in top 32.
