Yet another drifter hailing from Houston, Texas is Joshua Steele. Josh, who does not suffer from any type of mental disorders plans to bring his madness to the table for Import Reactor Drift. You always know when Mr. Steele is on the way to a drift event because he hauls about town in a monster Excursion pulling his drift car in style. Josh too has the drive to podium at I.R. Drift 2010, and he says he is bringing the big guns!
Name: Joshua Steele AKA “Mr. Nevrslo”
Height: 5ft 11in
Blood Type: Medium Spicy
Preference in Women: Everything about Jenna!!! (His girlfriend not the porn star!)
NOS Energy Drinks
Mr. Steele aka Mr. Neverslo has also been picked up and sponsored by local hardpark crew “Team 5 Star” (5*). Both groups are super stoked about the collaboration and both also like to party as well. 5 Star, who has been around in Houston since 2007 will be rolling out full force a well to Import Reactor and will have quite the presence at I.R. Drift. Between these two parties, we can definitely expect to see some MADNESS!
Now sit back for a moment as imagine something. You are a photographer, and you are shooting an executive style car for a feature in a few weeks. In the distance you hear a rumble, as do the other gents that are around you for the shoot and to your surprise you see a lifted Excursion pulling a drift car. Not to mention, the Excursion has a huge NEVRSLO banner and grenade slapped on the side of the truck. Up pulls the truck, parks, and out jumps Josh Steele. It is definitely a change of pace and a great way to make a group of people say, “what the hell?” All of the people in attendance for the executive style shoot sat, and stared mouth wide open as Steele parked it and unloaded his drift car. It was quite the site, as Josh goes no where quietly.
Let’s get to know Josh a bit…
“About 5 years ago I was driving down to the beach to go surfing when I saw a 240 just smoking crazy sideways!!! I was like FU$%^K the beach what the hell is that!!! Also keep in mind I had know clue what a 240 was and I still really don’t today…LOL. But needless to say I pulled into Gulf Greyhound Park and saw one of the first Daily Drifter Events! I remember asking my friend and a few people there what was going on and how in the hell are those front wheel drive cars staying side ways???”
“Yes, I was VERY new school. But after I saw that event, I went on Ebay and bought a totaled 350Z, (yes the one I’m still driving to this day!!!) and built it for drift. Now I also own a Nissan S13.4 which I am starting to drift with as well. I saw one and told every body I wanted to build the one with the mean eyes…lol. My friends Imran, Ivan, Jihad laughed at me all the time for that.”
“I like drifting because it is all you! It has a lot to do with the glitz and glamour! NO I’M NOT GAY!!! I just love seeing and building a beautiful car sliding side ways at 100 mph, it’s F$%^*^ rad!!! I also have my own shop called Nevrslo Motorsports, and at times it can be stressful, but drifting is just a chill sport all the way around. The friends, the traveling, the smell of burning rubber and fuel, its like being on an island named after you, and you can control the sun, moon, and stars!!!”
“I want to give a shout out to my parents for sure, especially my Dad for being stupid patient with me! I also want to thank Collin for building me a sweet ass role cage in both of my cars because without his help D1 would not have happened for me. Aaron for putting together drift events for us to enjoy! 786 for being nice to me even when I first came onto the scene I know they thought I was retarded!!! LOL Mike at NST for seriously building some of the sweetest pulleys and parts for my cars!!! Mike Speed for taking me cross-country to these events! Brian at Volk for hooking it up! Mad Brad for not hating me, even though he hates my Z… Rikki at Tomei for giving me diffs that I can destroy tires with!!!!!!!!! Anthony at K-Sport for the huge hook up, fu%^&$k off haters the shit works!!! Scott at NOS for keeping my heart rate way way way to high! Ivan for telling me to run Q16 in my 240, I seriously can shut all the doors at the shop, start my car and just breath it in, it smells like mangos!!! Dan at Powered by Max. Dan at Secret for making my car go fast!!! Cliff at IFO for letting us kill the parking lots at your events! 5 Star for picking up the tab, by far one of the coolest drift events in Houston!!!! I wear the star with honor!!! But out of them all, Daily Drifter, cause without them I don’t think there would even be a Nevrslo Motorsports, and I would still be trying to work at Hooters!!!”
Damn, well, we can tell you one thing, Josh Steele is super hyped about the up and coming I.R. Drift, and we expect to see him do some great things out there as well. There is nothing like a bit of enthusiasm to kick some drifting into serious gear, Good luck Josh!
