In May 2017, I had the chance to fly out to Virgina for one of the most pure grassroots events I’ve ever attended. After working for nearly 2 days straight, I had been so tired going into an event as the Low Style Heroes event at Shenandoah Speedway hosted by the local drift organization Swing Set LLC. Having caught a red eye flight, I arrived at Baltimore airport in the morning and immediately jumped in the rental car, drove through beautiful countryside, and arrived at the track right as the event started.
It’s been a while since the beginning of the 2017 Top Drift Pro Am season, but we’ve finally had time to catch up on all the photo goodness. Congrats to Sean Adriano for working his way to a first place finish, young man Dominic Martinez for coming in second place, and Kyle Cameron hanging on to a third place finish.
For a couple of years I’ve been going to Winterjam at Sonoma Raceway and having a blast to wrap up a great year of drifting. Winterjam is a regional year end event held in December that attracts all types of drivers from hard parkers, to weekend warriors, all the way to extremely competitive individuals with fully built cars. Sonoma Raceway is massive with several layouts running non stop the entire weekend, and drivers set up small towns around the premises with like minded colleagues, which makes Winterjam a super fun event to attend and cruise around.
