Formula Drift Irwindale 2014

By  | 

Formula Drift Irwindale is the most exciting car show that you’ll ever get to show your car at just because it’s the last event for the Formula Drift season. All of the FD drivers go all out and risk everything to place on the podium at the end of the night. Car crashes and slammed cars what more could you ask for?

We got there early on Friday to set up some booth stuff and check out the practice session.
