So a while back I particiapted in the Drift Evo event Bash to the Future in Medford on the GoKart track there and that event turned out to be huge. several pro drivers showed up thanks to tandem of die heavily promoting the event, and it was a lot of fun. It was a two day event as it was the once a year Medford Cruise drift event, and it was seriously hot all weekend.
I also had a lot of help in the pits which was awesome, and even loading up back at home.
Seeing as how it was a two day event i brought a lot of tires and yet i was still slightly concerned with running out before the event was over as they were going quick both days.
I even made some smoke because of the hot dry weather normally my car cant but this event was the exception.
here we have two of the 4 guys that came down from my hometown to do media and generally have a good time ( it was pretty much a 2 day 2 night party at the track ).
I also finally got to tandem with Ket Voang who I’ve known since well a long time, I’ve been drifting for 5 years now and we finally both had working cars at the same event. Also apparently this was Neal’s first time tandeming as well behind me.
I also got to take some laps with some really neat cars / drivers. Matt the owner of this car is actually a medford local so I’ve seen him around a lot and even driven with him a few times but driving with him was probably the most exciting runs for me for the weekend, as I was running high grip rear tires which I needed to even somewhat keep up with this 650HP beast of a car.
apparently he was even running a camera pointed back at me for one of my chase runs, and encase there is any doubt I was driving that little corolla as hard as I could to try and keep up.
Also Team Feint Heart made this awesome video:

Also me an austin took quite a few laps this was my first time driving with him, although ive known him for quite a few years since he was involved with Touge NW.
The shanty town at the track most of us out of towners just camped out
So After that even took Place I also happened to make it to the Forum Fest Event in Kent Washington as well. This is an event I’ve always wanted to go to but never could as I only just recently got a roll cage installed. Drift Office hosts this once a year event at Pacific Raceways road course and it is some seriously high speed drifting.
unfortunately I didn’t make it into much of the media there as my car was probably quite unimpressive as I sneaked my way into the pro group so I could tandem with some friends so when you see a beat up corolla lined up next to a Pro Formula D car not many people gave the corolla a second or even a first thought, but one spectator did get this video with his cell phone
I was carrying my CountourHD with me and I got some great footage with it so ill try an edit out all of the boring waiting around parts soon and put something together, but in the mean time unfortunately this is all the media coverage i got for now.
