Formula Drift kicked off its 13th championship season this weekend on the Grand Prix circuit in Long Beach, California. The forecast predicted rain on both days of FD but it didn’t stop the drift teams from going out there. For the first time, Team Edelbrock joined the sideways action to see what drifting was all about.
Friday qualifying session had many drivers in the wall but with better weather expected on Saturday the line up was established using last years standings and we were racing Saturday after some morning rain. The stands were jam packed and the foot traffic was high regardless of weather.
