2015 Holley Performance LS Fest in Kentucky [RESULTS]


WOW guys! The atmosphere and 10,000+ people at Beech Bend Raceway in Kentucky was electric this weekend. This is my third LS Fest and it was by far the strongest drivers list the event has had since its inception years ago. Joon Maeng took over the event and had the best qualifying run I had seen put down at LS Fest. Here is how qualifying wrapped up –

1. Joon Maeng
2. Pat Goodin
3. Josh McGuire
4. Dirk Stratton
5. Nate Hamilton
6. Ricky Adams
7. Rob Carlson
8. Steve Topping
9. Nick Thomas
10. Devin Callahan
11. Alex Heilbrunn
12. Eric Loomis
13. Bryan Broberg
14. Rolando Alfaro
15. Shane Whalley
16. Hooman Rahimi


The grandstands were completely packed out at Holley’s LS Fest for the Top 16. The Formula Drift drivers slowly fell out of the competition one by one including a tough exit for Pat Goodin who lost an AN line and sprayed coolant everywhere in his Final Four battle. This made him miss the 3rd place battle all together and wound up sitting in fourth. Here is how the podium wound up and we have more coverage on the way –

1st. Josh McGuire
2nd. Nick Thomas
3rd. Bryan Broberg
4th. Pat Goodin

Three Palms Raceway Owes Rent, Payouts, Taxes, and More


The group who purchased a Pro Am license from Formula Drift in Florida is known as Three Palms Drift Pro Am that also rents and runs Three Palms Speedway seem to be underwater in debts. The track from what I understand was called Punta Gorda Speedway and was shut down by the property owners (Charlotte County Airport Authority) when the old owners weren’t paying bills, having issues, etc… Three Palms came in for a 36 month / $6,500 a month rental agreement for the property according to NBC Channel 2 and brought the track back to life.


The track then hosted a winter Pro Am series bringing down guest judges such as Geoff Stoneback and pro judge Brian Eggert to help legitimize the Pro Am and issue some Pro 2 licenses for 2015. Well, when the smoke cleared from the Pro Am series they owed people money (some who wished to go on the record and some who asked to be kept out of it.) The $15,000 in series prize money announced in December here from what I understand has not been paid out to the tune of one cent at this point. If you add on the tax troubles and not paying their landlord I don’t see anyone getting paid anytime soon from this Pro Am.


Some of the short lived series content can be found here in our archives. These content posts from Wrecked might sadly be the only records left of this Florida Pro Am series soon. However, some good did come out of the series as it helped a couple Florida drifters run Pro 2 this season including Kesley Rowlings who I think has a possible bright future in Formula Drift.

2015 Formula Drift Thursday Night’s At Irwindale Speedway [SCHEDULE]


Southern California just lacked drift events on a Thursday night so Formula Drift has answered that major problem with a 2015 grassroots Irwindale schedule. These events are focused more to local drivers but are open to the public if you happen to be near Irwindale Speedway. Most events do see the attendance of a few Formula Drift Pro and Pro 2 drivers as well. The April 2nd event is probably a great place to spot 2015 builds and liveries being tested just one week before Round 1 at Streets of Long Beach. Season kicks off in just nine days with its first event set to be March 12th. Drifting happens between 5:00pm – 9:00pm for each one of these scheduled dates below. Spectators pay $10.00 to enter and drifting costs just $75.00 for the whole evening.

2015 Schedule:
March 12th
April 2nd
May 14th
June 11th
July 19th
August 13th
September 10th
