Rumors had been circulating on this issue since we got back in the office from Long Beach but we wanted to be sure it was confirmed due to the insane nature of this topic here at Wrecked. Mike this morning made it official on the NOPI forum that he will no longer be a judge for the NOPI Drift series. Here is what Mike Peters had to say on the topic at hand in the NOPI forum they still won’t approve our accounts for.
I stepped down today as head judgeroony guy. Moroso was a disaster and Rob Matt and myself tried our best, but I had a recent family issue I’d rather not discuss and I can’t focus as much time/energy at or between events anymore to do my job properly, so after talking with Mike/Glenn about stuff I’ve stepped down. I’ll probably be helping out/driving in the Nopi Drift scene in one way or another LATER this year but for the next couple months I’ll probably be MIA till around Ohio/Utah timeframe. I still have time to help do some legwork on Qualifiers but the Big Kid event’s right now I’m out.
Anyways just wanted to pass that around so my phone isn’t ringing at 3am (TCOX THAT MEANS YOU!!!)
I don’t know who the 3rd judge will be at STL. Working on a couple options and as soon as somoene figures it out I/They’ll let you know.
See Y’all around, if I don’t see you round its a $500 fine for being gay and not draft racing,
Again, leave this stuff in the Driver’s forum for now.”
