————OF THE DAY AWARD————–
D-UP! Drifting and DSTROYR are proud to present our first “DSTROYR of the Day” award to Mats Baribeau for his outstanding car, personality and driving. It was not an easy call -there were lot’s of people that showed up and really threw down -but at the end of the day Mats and his 500hp Chaser simply stood out from the crowd -covering Monticello in a thick plume of tire smoke. His consistent, flat out, hammer down runs were simply breath taking. Most of us have seen Mats drive before at smaller venues -but seeing him on a high speed track that really allowed him to flex some of the 1J muscle was certainly a big treat for all in attendance. Mats did stay at a Holiday Inn the night before -and he claims that the maple syrup is what made it all possible… Whatever Mats is doing to prep for events -he’s doing it right!
Congrats Mats -your D-UP! and DSTROYR’s “Shakedown 2011 DSTROYR of the Day”! We look forward to having you back at D-UP! in the future and we wish you the best in your 2011 DMCC and Pro-Am series campaign.
