Long Beach is one of the most intimidating tracks of the Formula Drift season. Can you imagine being surrounded by walls throughout the entire course where the slightest mistake can send you careening into a concrete barrier? No thanks. Although those walls are menacing and the FD veterans are somewhat used to them, it may seem daunting to a rookie who’s running this course for the very first time. However, it didn’t seem to faze rookie Joshua Steele in his Nevrslo Motorsports S14.

Formula Drift is back for its tenth year of competition, and Round 1 at the Streets of Long Beach was one of the best events in recent history. With new cars, new drivers, and new rules, there was a sense of freshness throughout the weekend.
Last weekend saw the convergence of nearly 80 drifters from around the Midwest and beyond for the second-annual No-Star Bash, a joint venture between Drift Indy and ClubFR. 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!

DriftSTL closed out its 2012 season with a Drift Matsuri event at Gateway International Raceway just outside of St. Louis. The event drew nearly 50 drivers from all over the Midwest and mid-South to run on what many drivers consider one of the best regional venues for the sport.Read More
Traction Optional finished its 2012 season with a final hurrah last weekend at Memphis International Raceway. Though turnout wasn’t as high as had been in previous events, it equated to more seat time for the drivers who did show up (such as Cameron Moore, above), without even an official stop for lunch from the time the track went hot around 9:30 until everyone started packing up at 4.Read More
The last round of the Formula Drift tour was at Irwindale Speedway. This event always lives up to its expectations. And this time was no different. Carnage, close calls, and wall rides are the norm at this track. Being the last event of the year, everyone knows it is all or nothing, go big or go home, make or break and all those other clichés that mean drive your freakin’ ass off.Read More
The 2012 season of the Midwest Drift Union pro-am feeder series for Formula D has seen a lot of talented drivers from all over the region coming out to show what they’re made of on the track. There was a lot of smoke, a lot of destroyed rubber and a handful of crashes along the way, but for three drivers of that series, they saw their efforts pay off and earned their Formula D provisional licenses. We’re going to take a look back on the season of these three drivers to show you how they got here and what they’re doing next.
