Rookie Geoff Stoneback trailered his car across the country without turning a wheel back home for testing of just one lap. Typical story you have heard 100 times with drift programs, right? Well his truck broke down in Texas and he called upon uShip to get his car to Long Beach within 24 hours and make his tech appointment. Step 1, complete! During practice and testing he had two car failures leaving just his second qualifying lap to make his first complete lap and qualify. He managed that as well and qualified 29th in the first lap driven with his new 240 build. What a cool story of overcoming diversity for the rookie!
