A nice video was shot featuring Pro Am superstar Geoff Stoneback who has been winning events and at least landing on the podium everywhere he manages to show up an drive. Brian Casse put together this video and we transcribed the interview Geoff gave him below:
I was really excited to hear the news that US drift would be returning. We were already running another pro-am series the US Drift Union. So it was something that we wanted to do but wanted to work it into our schedule and so far make it work. Round one was really good, we had a lot of good drivers out there, and the track was our hometown track, so we sorta knew it sorta like the back of our hands. To go out on track, and you know just practice on the course that we always drive on was pretty easy, and sorta set the tone for the rest of the series.
Coming off of round one we were leading in points, so that was good. We obviously wanted to stay up there. Hyperfest at the main course at some point, has always been like a tough course for me between gear ratios and power. I know the V8 puts out a lot of torque, however with the suspension set-up, and the alignments that we run and the size tire, you know we really have as much grip as possible. Before round 2, we took the car to RT Tuning in Landsville, PA and we got it aligned and got everything set-up right. So, we were excited to go down and test it out, and see how it felt.
