Formula DRIFT has announced that they will continue their partnership with NOS® Energy Drink as the Official Energy Drink of Formula DRIFT for the 2012 Pro Championship Series.

“Formula D embodies exactly what NOS stands for –high performance energy, unwavering mental focus, and aggressive determination,” said Eric Helms, Director of Marketing for NOS Energy Drink. “Through our partnership the past two years, both NOS and Formula D have continued to fortify motorsports credibility and attract new fans. We’re excited for more of the same in 2012.”

This will be the third consecutive year that NOS will be an official sponsor of the Series. NOS will continue to support former Formula DRIFT champion Chris Forsberg into the 2012 season.

“We are excited to have NOS back on board again this yea, “said Jim Liaw, president and co-founder of Formula DRIFT. “Over the last 2 seasons the NOS team has been a great sponsor but also proactive promotional partner. Their presence at each event adds to the festivities for the fans and their promotional support is one of the factors to our continuous spectator growth. Everyone at Formula DRIFT is looking forward to working with the NOS team again this season.”

I first got into drifting around 2006 after finding videos on YouTube. I ended up attending my first drift event in 2007 at Sonoma Raceway and was hooked. Wrecked Magazine offered me a job here in 2010 and since have been a freelance writer, and striving towards my own drift career.

    NOS and Chris Forsberg have been working together for a long time now. Who has been sponsored by an Energy drink Company longer?(that is still in FD)

    Forsberg, Vaughn, or Millen?

    am I forgetting anyone here?

  2. rotarypower says:

    Millen and redbull have been together longer than Chris and nos I think lol

  3. YOitzJDM says:

    Millen picked up Red Bull in 2006. Forsberg was working with NOS starting in 2006 but on a much smaller scale

  4. cody says:

    A few other energy drinks have tried to. Mohan had Spider, Chris Kregorian had Xtacy or something like that.

  5. Casey Crittenden says:

    Dont forget about Vaughn and Shark Energy.

  6. YOitzJDM says:

    Tanner and Steph were promoting “Unbound Energy Drink” before they connected with Rockstar. Matt Waldin had HeliX last year. Nitro2Go sponsored a drift car in Socal for awhile, starting back in 2005 or 2006

  7. Casey Crittenden says:

    Dai was also sponsored by Rockstar for a few years.

  8. lifer says:

    I remember Joe Dycus in the 350Z with Datsun racing inspired graphics had Nitro2go on his rear windshield. Nice guy.

  9. Mike Peters says:

    Chris Kegorian.

  10. lifer says:

    Didn’t that guy have a 350Z with an LS1 plus a turbo?

    I don’t think he did very well.

    Chris Kregorian is an untalented douche. He needs to accept his age, put on his adult diapers and get out of the driver seat.
