Formula Drift Announces 2014 Championship
In front of a standing-room only press conference held yesterday afternoon at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Formula Drift officials announced their ambitious 2014 event schedule.

For the eleventh consecutive year, Irwindale Speedway will host a championship round of the international competition; this year on October 10 and 11. Round 7 at Irwindale will be the 2014 stateside finale after a cross-country tour that begins in Long Beach in early April.

The 2013 event at Irwindale was a total sell-out and the first-ever Formula Drift event to attract over 20,000 attendees over a two day run. "We're very pleased to have Formula Drift back on our schedule for 2014," said track GM/COO Bob Klein. "We're quite proud of our nickname 'The House of Drift' ... We've seen the Formula Drift phenomena grow from a "What's that?" to a "Must see!" event here at Irwindale and we're all looking forward to another great show next season."

After noticing no other national Import events were going back to New England this race season, Import Face-Off continued to fill the void by scheduling New England Dragway in 2010. The event was such a success, Joe Lombardo, New England Dragway manager, has already scheduled the 2nd annual New England IFO for the same weekend in 2011 and most likely a second one in the fall. The stands were packed (see pics) and car show score cards were sold out…

DMCC Round 6 2011: St-Eustache, QC

The second to last round of the DMCC season was a big one. It was a special event where drivers from the XDC series came up to Canada to compete in a Canada VS USA battle. There are already a few XDC drivers that compete in the DMCC series but this event was done in partnership with XDC. Chris Forsberg came up to help judge the event and sign autographs under the NOS Energy tent and we even had the voice of drift himself J-Rod as a guest announcer. The event took place at the Autodrome St-Eustache which is about…
