Tyler McQuarrie
Age: 30
Hometown: Danville, CA
Years Drifting: 5

Tyler earned significant notice when he became co-champion of the highly popular 2008 Redline Time Attack. It was his accomplishments in this competition and his strong efforts in many Formula Drift events that got him noticed by Team Falken, and in 2009, Tyler becomes a new member of the squad, driving a V8-powered Nissan 350Z convertible on Falken Azenis RT-615 tires; a very potent combination. And on the subject of combinations, when you name your firstborn daughter McLaren, there's no question this man has oil pumping through his veins and tremendous control at the pedals. He is a dangerous addition to the 2009 Falken Drift Team.
