It was HOT. It was BRIGHT. It was LOUD.
IT WAS WORTH IT...
This past weekend in Orlando, Florida, many spectators, enthusiasts, racers, models, and all different breeds of people had a chance to enjoy some of the top drivers from the still uprising world of drifting. Over 30 drivers competed for a spot in the top 16 qualifers, which was pretty intense given the caliber of drivers present. Watching Matt Waldin, driver of the Helix / Mishimoto turbocharged Z33, was like watching a sniper pick off his enemies one-by-one on a battlefield. There was a brief scare proceeding the battle of Waldin v. Moen's "One-More-Time." But luckily, Matt walked away victorious.
Although I think many of us believed that Waldin and DeNofa should have had a "One-More-Time" battle in the fight for 1st and 2nd place, we can all agree that it was a good show and we got to see some top-notch skills. Congratulations to the Top Four Drivers!
