Interview with Pro Am Sensation Geoff Stoneback [VIDEO]

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.

Chris Jeanneret announces partnership with English Racing

After attempting to run his own engine program but running into mechanical gremlins that kept him from making a full pass in Long Beach, Formula D rookie Chris Jeanneret has partnered up with long time drag racer Luc English and his English Racing shop to operate the engine program for Jeanneret’s STR Wheels Nissan S14. With the series heading to Jeanneret’s home track of Evergreen Speedway and the Rookie-of-the-Year race still up for grabs, Jeanneret hopes that this new partnership will give him the reliable power he needs to push his program up the ranks. Jeanneret finished some final testing over the weekend and says he’s ready for action!

Jeanneret sent over a dyno video of the new LS6 motor featuring Wiseco pistons and K1 internals,  which he tells us is pushing well over 500 horsepower to the rear wheels naturally-aspirated.
