Introduction:

Team Top Flight is a group of guys who decided they would do whatever necessary, though limited resources to try and help support Arizona's Nissan automotive community. Such action includes, but is not limited to, attending and supporting local and non-local events while gaining coverage to bring the event experience back home. In addition to supporting local events through attendance, we have participated in capturing and posting event footage for your viewing pleasure (TeamTopFlight.blogspot.com).

Club History:

Growing up in different cities and attending different high schools, three groups of guys shared a similar interest. As fate would have it, these groups ran into each other at local street drift meets where they hit it off quite well. Personalities meshed as if they had known each other for years. Since that moment they were inseparable. As the group evolved, they adopted a name, a culture, and lifestyle. Top Flight. The rest is history.
