Jason Jiovani is a rising star from Florida working his way up the ranks of professional drifting. Jason has been building himself a name over the last 4 years as a professional on and off the track. Spending more time behind the wheel than money under the hood means Jiovani has been able to stay competitive with his 230hp SR powered 240sx. Previously a NOPI competitor, this year Jason has stepped up earning 2 invites to the FormulaD ProAm Finals, a Top16 in D1GP Miami, and 1st place at round 2 of the Florida Pro Drift Series. Jiovani has also been involved with many shows and demos this year including involvement with the Indy Racing League, Stunt Wars, Daytona Extreme Spring Break, Drift Aruba, NSCRA, Hot Import Nights, and more!
One of his favorite parts about drifting is taking fans for ride-a-longs whenever possible:
“The opportunity to the everyday person to feel the rush of sliding sideways at high speed is very small. I get a huge boost in my own fun when I see how much enjoyment they are getting out of the off-the-wall experience.”
Jason is currently sponsored by Nexen Tires, Exedy Racing Clutches, LICO Safety Gear, K Sport Suspension, Extreme Dimensions, R&B Autobody, and All-American StreetCar Performance.
Look for Jason Jiovani to drive in many more exciting and competitive events in the 2010 season. Fans can get in touch with Jason through his MySpace.com/BoxMod where he has many videos and pictures for you to check out!

This is the coilover system BC Racing used to win many races this past season in the redline time attack. if you are serious about handling, don’t pass these up.
“The sheer strength that these coilovers have is mind blowing. I’ve had BC Coilovers on my s13 for 3 years and not once have I had any type of problem with them. They are durable and can stand up to all the abuse that any drifter throws at them.”
