Road Atlanta; home of the inaugural Formula DRIFT event 14 years ago, gave us one of the best rounds we’ve ever seen. The weather was pretty crazy with a little bit of rain, lots of sun, humid at times, cold at others… Mother Nature was throwing it all at these drivers and they still pulled off one killer run after another!
You could see the want for victory in everyone’s driving style on Road Atlanta this year. It was no holds bumper to bumper, tires into doors, ruthless fighting through tandems with plenty of carnage.
The amount of OMT’s that the Formula DRIFT judges through out was nothing short...
What would you be thinking coming into Rd 2 with high stakes on the table after Deane took top of the podium in Rd 1? Well, the Pro 1 field of cars were here to rock the pavement and put the pressure hard into doors. With Orlando Speed World giving one wild bank to ride, the hesitations to tap wall here were nonexistent! We always love this track’s ability to let the fans get up close and personal in turn one.
The shake down runs in practice Friday morning showed that everyone was on their A-game. To no surprise, qualifying went just as smooth. But competition is when things got hot and heavy.
James Deane, coming...

7 years dormant from the series, James Deane returns and takes the podium.
The Streets of Long Beach brought out the big burners through turns 9-11 once again. With it’s 14th season kicking off in the traditional, beautiful weather of Southern California, the stakes were driven deep in taking the first round of Formula DRIFT. And the drive could be seen in the aggression of these drivers. The drivers weren’t the only folks ready to clutch kick this season into gear. These fans came in the thick. They filled every seat in the stands to root on their favorite names behind...

Todays feature is from our trips to Dallas Texas during the Formula Drift event and Offsetkings car show back in September at Texas Motor Speedway. We’re highlighting all the amazing battles and rivalries on the track ripping sideways to get the gold.
During the show we decided to catch up with our longtime friends from Team Nemesis. We consider them family as they have embraced State of Stance with open arms and gracious hospitality. While catching up we noticed a lot of changes since we last covered some of their team last December in Houston at Wekfest. One of...
Do you ever think to yourself and ask why do we do what we do with our cars ? Why so much prep work for a show that people will just look at your car and keep walking ? Its all because of the passion and the love to keep the scene alive and that’s what we noticed in Ariel’s G35. Every day it gets more and more difficult to make sure you stand out.
Once Ariel laid eyes on this G35 he already knew what the game plan was for it. Looks were his main focus so soon after he bought the car he went with a set of K Sport Kontrol coil overs to comfort his ride and height. After some motivation from TruFitment’s leader Johnny he...
