Rutledge Wood of Top Gear USA fame was a guest on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast last week and brought up drifting on more than one occasion in the show.

Formula Drift Pro2 Driver Preview – Kasey King

Kasey King, leading member of the Triple Crown Drift crew out of Fort Collins, Colorado and creator of the Triple Crown Drift Week 2014, earned his license through Vegas Drift despite finishing 2014 in fourth place. Because Cameron Moore and Spike Chen had already earned their Formula Drift licenses from other Pro Ams before the Vegas Drift finals, Kasey was allowed to earn his as an alternate. While he won’t be using his 2014 TC Drift Lexus SC300 in Pro2, he built another for the 2015 season and looks to be an even more impressive build with a 2JZ power plant.

Formula Drift Pro 2 Driver Preview – Dewayne Ramsey

Originally from Panama City, Dewayne Ramsey calls the Lone Star State and Houston home where he drove his very yellow Toyota Cressida to a Pro Am license at Lone Star Drift. He came in second place in 2014 and missed the championship by only 3.5 points. He comes in to the 2015 Pro2 championship with the same Cressida that nearly took it all but with an improved 2JZ on Garrett Turbo boost and a CD009 350Z transmission. His Cosmis Racing Wheels are wrapped by Achilles Radial rubber while suspension movements are controlled by BC Racing Coilovers. Let’s see if his “Redhair, Don’t Care!” attitude he carried in the Lone Star Drift series translates to a similar Pro2 performance and bolsters the pride of the 4-door drift car fans across the US.
