Event Coverage: Formula D Pro-Am Nationals pt. 1

Well, back to reality…the office on a Monday morning..coming back from The House of Drift, Toyota Speedway, Irwindale, the home of the 2009 Formula D Pro-Ams. It was my first time to witness drifting at this spectacular track, and I got to witness it as 24 of the nation’s top amateur drifters battled it out for their Formula D 2010 professionals licenses. Comradery, drama, wrecks, and awesome driving were all witnessed as each driver drifted with an FD license in mind.

First Look: Ameen Rizvi’s Balls Out Toyota Cressida.

As I write this post, Ameen Rizvi and the 786 Motoring crew are still driving through Arizona with precious cargo aboard. The cargo in question is proof of a Labor of Love put together through the last several years by Ameen. The 1989 Toyota Cressida is undoubtably the sole reason why the road trip exists. The destination is the sunny skies of Irwindale, California, host to this weekend’s Formula D Pro-Am.
