Formula Drift Texas

August 20-21, 2015: Formula Drift stops at Texas Motor Speedway. Both Pro1 and Pro2 saw a completely new track layout for Rd.6. Being our rookie season, basically every track is new for us so this new layout put everyone on a level playing field, I was happy for that.

I never did let this cross my mind and I knew we would be okay as long as the Independent Speed Shop 240sx continued proving to be a reliable and well sorted vehicle.. and that it was!
