Hot Import Nights Returns with Hardcore Drift Tour Helped by SWD

HIN.StreetwiseDrift

So Hot Import Nights (formerly people who ran XDC and WDrift) have teamed up with the Formula Drift Pro Am series Streetwise Drift. The partnership includes right now an event at OSW in May and in August at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The title of this series right now appears to be the Hardcore Drift Tour. No word yet seems to be released on payouts, prizes, and competition format. SWD released this below on Facebook previewing that more information is coming out next week. This could be interesting as we learn more in the near future.

Streetwise Drift and Hot Import Nights have linked up to do some HARDCORE Drifting together in 2014 and beyond. 2 East Coast Events are set up and heading your way! #1 on May 17th Orlando Speedworld Oval Track and #2 on August 2nd @ New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Driver Registration, rules and further details about these exciting events will be announced within the coming week!

Vaughn Gittin Jr. Shows off his Garage and Backyard [VIDEO]

Vaughn Gittin Jr. has the pleasure of living in Maryland so his backyard comes with a rock quarry and tons of space for a huge garage. However, the snow in winter makes me think I am going to pass on becoming his neighbor. This video shows off his huge garage and backyard. With special guests Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg these guys take over Vaughn’s backyard with a Ford Fiesta ST, Corolla, WRX, S13 missile car, and the Foxbody missile car. The jump with his Fox at the end is worth watching the whole video.
