Hi, everyone... Donít know if any of you all have ever been to an Import Face-Off, but thereís going to be one in Houston on Sunday, January 23rd. Anyone from here going?
Drifting will take place on a 3/8th mile Oval track and will run both clockwise and counter plus driving through the infield in a slalom type setup, then also ride up onto the banking. It's not a road course, so kind of like Irwindale. There is a $500 payout - $300 to first, $125 to second, and $75 to third. Registration is open on www.dailydrifter.com
