KMS Drift in Green Cove Springs, FL
KMS Drift was back in the 'Sunshine State' for round one competition on March 30th. With nearly perfect weather, KMS kicked off the 2013 competition. Over 500 spectators came out to watch the “smoke show!”

38 drivers from four states came out to test their skills and to the “rust off” from the off season rebuiling. These drivers put it all on the line in a race with points towards the championship - as well as a XDC Pick for the May event in Orlando, FL - up for grabs. 

The track boasted a nice third gear entry sweeper into a switch back figure-eitht, transitioning into a nice technical 'S.' This course was sure to separate the men from the boys. Some said it couldn’t be linked, but these drivers proved them wrong. The aggressive layout proved to be intimidating initially, but drivers worked through it through practice runs and were sliding hot by competition time.

Sponsor Team LGTH cleaned up in the Pro-Street and Pro-AM with 2 first place finishes. Way to go guys, way to rep them!

Import Face-Off 2010: Las Vegas, NV

This event had the largest turnout for the FWD class in Import Face Off (IFO) history, proving import drag racing is alive and well on the West coast. The FWD class, usually a top 8 qualifier only, had so many contestants (30+) that IFO officials had to double it into a top 16 field and add a secondary class for qualifiers 17 to 24! Unfortunately, the racing portion of the event rained out after the first round of eliminations. Payouts were split up evenly with all the racers left in the competition.
