The first round of the Polish Drift Championship is in the books after a big weekend at Poznań. Here is how qualifying and the final event results clocked in for the big season kick off! Noteably absent was the PUZ Drift Team as they were away in Lithuania for another event. We will have more content coming soon from Poland thanks to the help of Maciej Maroszek!

Wrecked Weekly grabbed a few minutes with Kenneth Moen just before he went out to compete at Super Drift. My co-host was Jacob Leveton chatted with Kenneth Moen about his rivalry with compatriot Fredric Aasbo and the long road to a possible championship. After Kenneth left we continued on to chat about the $100k Triple Crown prize for next season and the 2015 Formula Drift World Championship which are both hot button topics right now in the paddock!
Alex Golovnya is a Ukrainian national who has debuted his 2014 car ready for the European drift season. The car is title sponsored by a tire company called Zeetex Tire again in 2014 and has a look close to his past seasons S13. The car is powered by a RB26 and he had success in 2013 with two podiums in Drift All-Stars alone!
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!

A great look at the Ford Racing team which consists of Justin Pawlak and Vaughn Gittin Jr. for the 2014 drift season. Justin finished the weekend in fourth place and Vaughn had a decent weekend as well for the Ford Racing team. We really liked the quality of this video!
Mike Phillips built an awesome Nissan 240sx that is ready to debut in Formula Drift. With NASCAR style numbers on the roof and doors we cannot imagine many people are excited about this one build. I personally just love it! The car sits on RPF1 wheels and has sponsorships from Ozzy Motors, Competition Clutch, and Falken Tire.

Fredric Aasbo got a new look to his Toyota 86-X for the 2014 season in Europe. The car brings on Toyota Express Service on a sponsor and maintains the relationship with Speedhunters. Not sure what events he will be attending around Europe this drift season but we are sure you will see this car in action soon!
Ouch! At the Drift Movement event in Columbus, Ohio someone brought out a E90 BMW M3 four door and hit the course. The good news is he saved the car from understeering straight into the big monster truck tire but smacked it on the exit pretty good. That is going to be an expensive one to fix!
The Evergreen Drift season kicked off this weekend in Washington with Round 1 of the Formula Drift Pro Am series. Here is how the podium finished up:
1. Cameron Moore
2. Aaron Day
3. Brian Lockbaum
Many people have pointed out to me that the first battle of the Top 16 was poorly judged. I have now watched it over 25 times from Livestream and reviewed my notes. Everyone seems to take issue with Michael Essa’s follow run, which I do agree was piss poor. You cannot see but he straightens out big time coming out of turn 10 following Mats. One issue I blame on the Livestream for not having cameras on the inside of the track for viewing/critique.
