Chris Rado is joining all the drag racers in the lifeboat as they have jumped off the sinking ship known as sport compact drag racing. He has been spotted testing with “The Hurricane” Tony Angelo recently and perhaps we could possibly see him at the 2008 Formula D Pro Am? Further reports have unveiled that his testing has been in Tony Angelo’s S13 Nissan 240sx. We will keep an ear out to any breaking news of him Drifting. Many drag racers have entered the Drifting community with open arms but we have a feeling it might be a little different for Scion drag racer Chris Rado. Many people in the Drifting community have yet to forget his comments made in Sport Compact Car magazine. Below are a few comments he made in the article talking about Drifting and the D1 Grand Prix series
“There’s no mystery to drifting,just solid techniques;basically what I’ve been doing since high-school to showoff”
“Way too many of the guys at D1 seemed surly to the fans;like they’d rather slump over in a lawn chair and inhale Marlboro Reds than shake hands,sign autographs,or even listen to questions”
“Wow.I understand that a lot of guys there didn’t speak english,but that’s no excuse for not representing yourself, your team,and your sponsors well”
Although these comments took place several years ago when Drifting was new to the United States, it would appear the community and fans have yet to forget what Chris Rado has said. The last post on Drifting.com was 7/3/2008 which is over four years after the thread was made. We have the link below to the full thread, read it for yourself and you be the judge.
