“This should put us near the 1K horsepower mark when track ready. Rockstar Performance Garage and AEM Induction Systems have been pioneers in the automotive and racing community for years,” Hosford added. “If not for all of my sponsors, friends, and family…none of this would have been possible. I cannot thank them enough for their support and I am very eager to shred some Nexen tires in Pro2 this year. Gonna get rowdy!” he went on to say.

The Bridges Racing championship team operate a top-notch facility in Huntington Beach that produces some of the meanest drift cars the world has seen compete in Formula DRIFT history. Bridges Racing has developed successful Formula DRIFT track cars for Daigo Saito, Robbie Nishida, Dean Kearny, James Dean, and Piotr Więcek to name a few. The Bridges Racing team principle is Bryan Bridges, a former NHRA Sport Compact Champ, accomplished championship Formula Drift team owner and all-around good guy.

“Just looking at this car, you know it means business. So yeah, I’m super excited for the privilege to work with Bryan and the professionals at Bridges Racing. They have proven themselves on and off the track for years and it was an easy choice to work with them. It’s going to be an exciting season working alongside these guys!” Corey stated.

The Nissan S14 Boss will be outfitted with a custom Pandem Wide V2 Body Kit and a stunning (NEW) yellow on black livery vinyl wrap that completes the exterior.

Hosford will be competing in two rounds of the Formula DRIFT Pro2 series Seattle and Texas, as well as other drift events across the United States. Official racing schedules of additional events will be available in the future. More info available at http://www.formulad.com/pro2
