After going through various engines and having nothing but reliability problems, Chris Hawkin decided to break out from the norm and join the JZ club, with a heavily modified Toyota 2jz gte now adorning his s13. If you’re wondering, that isn’t Chris in the photo, some guy just wanted to bust some moves.
The Tennessee State of Drift Championship returned to Memphis International Raceway last weekend to hold the fifth of its six-round inaugural 2014 season. With many cars broken before the competition began and the series points leader not being present, the shuffling in points meant the future series championship could still be clenched by a handful of drivers.

The Midwest Drift Union returned once again to Roosevelt Park in Detroit for the fourth stop on its 2014 schedule. Unique in that it is the only event of its type in the country to take place on public roads, and after a highly successful inaugural showing in 2013, there were high expectations for an even better showing the second time around, and I believe it’s safe to say there wasn’t anyone in attendance who went home disappointed.

With the inaugural Tennessee State of Drift Championship season now halfway over, the series made its first stop at Traction Optional’s main stomping grounds, Memphis International Raceway. Utilizing a new course layout far different than any at that facility so far, a relatively small field of drivers took to the track to see who would come out on top. More after the jump!
One of the biggest drift events in the Midwest, No-Star Bash 2014 attracted over 50 drivers to Lucas Oil Raceway Park in Indianapolis last weekend for two full days of drifting. There was a lot of rain, a lot of smoke and a few broken cars, but the spirit of drifting was on full display for everyone in attendance. More after the jump!
The Midwest Drift Union made its first ever stop in Iowa last weekend to hold its second round of competition for 2014. Held at Mid-America Motorplex in Pacific Junction, IA, one of the smallest groups of drivers the series has ever seen went headstrong into the event, stirring up the points bracket and seeing another David vs. Goliath final match.

The 2013 Midwest Drift Union pro-am series concluded last weekend at Street Life Tour with Geoff Stoneback being crowned the overall champion, earning himself a Formula Drift license to compete for the 2014 season. We’re going to recap his 2013 exploits to show you how he got to the top of the points. More after the jump!
Round 6 is in the books, and the first event at Texas Motor Speedway was full of surprises. Mike Essa and the GSR Autosport BMW M3 took home their second victory of the season, pushing them ahead of 3rd place finisher Chris Forsberg and the NOS Energy Drink 370z. 2nd place was taken by our very own Matt Field and the Blacktrax Performance/CX Racing S14.
Congrats to everyone on an amazing event, and congrats to Matt Field for his first (of many) carbon fiber trophy!
We’ll have full coverage up soon, but in the meantime be sure to check out the gallery on our Facebook page.
I cruised into Seattle a few days early this year. Got to see Tacoma WA, and display my car at the LeMay car museum. I love getting into town early before the event, it’s awesome to meet up with some die hard fans outside the venue, chill and enjoy the local scene.
When I first picked up my camera in 2010, I was lost in the world of drift. I was just a fan with a camera, trying to figure out who owned which car and how my little camera worked. After going to an event or two, I met a group of cool guys with a handful of vibrant Japanese tuner cars and was invited to a local meet at a Sonic for fun and cool cars. The leader of the pack, Marco Tellez, stepped out of his green 240sx coupe and handed me a sticker for their meet and we kept talking since. Fast forward a few years and a handful of changes for that green car and we find ourselves a V8 powered teal monster.
