Bridges Racing and Dean Kearney are expanding and looking to fill various full and part-time positions. Any time there is a chance to get your foot in the door, it is extremely valuable, no matter what work you do. And it just so happens that a great opportunity is currently presenting itself in professional drifting for upcoming fabricators, admin, race support/prep crew, videographers, etc. looking to grow within the sport. Not only will you be working with a top level team, but you may also get to travel, work in various conditions, and build your network within the industry.
Some driver examples that have had similar experiences working on a Formula DRIFT team and learned from their experience within the sport are Rapper Dan Savage who crewed with Chelsea DeNofa before winning the 2014 PRO2 Championship, Jonathan Nerren who crewed with Vaughn Gittin JR before starting his own multi-car team competing in Formula DRIFT Canada, and Dylan Hughes who currently crews with Chris Forsberg and won the 2016 USDrift PRO/AM Series in his first full year of competition. I also know of countless others that are definitely on their way to make an impact in the sport in some form or another.
As for videographer examples, you have Mark Lenardon (late videographer for Motor Trend Magazine) who started filming with Drift Indy and Midwest Drift Union, moved on to film for Club Loose and Bloodmasters, traveled with numerous drivers in Formula DRIFT such as Tony Angelo and Geoff Stoneback, and then went on to create content and film for productions such as Hot Rod Garage and Road Kill. Sam Nalven (1/3 of Maximum Driftcast) paid his own way to attend and cover Formula DRIFT events when he started producing his “Drift Chronicles” before he worked on “Tuerck’d“, “Drift Garage“, “Off Track” and more recently with “Vaughn Gittin JR“, “Snap-On”, and “Donut Media“.
If you’re still interested and think you have the drive for it, interviews will be held this Saturday morning at the Race Shop in Huntington Beach, CA for local people and those not lucky enough to live in sunny SoCal can schedule a Skype interview. Information about drivers, team, work shop, and schedule for 2017 will be disclosed to selected applicants only. CV’s/Resume sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
