The date is fast approaching, and the time has finally come. Keep Drifting Fun. Fed up with watching fame, money, and sponsorship deals destroying friendship and camaraderie, I coined the phrase in 2008 in total frustration at the tail end of my professional drift career in this video. I saw too many people losing sight of why we got into this crazy sport, so as I made my exit from professional drifting, I wanted to leave with a message. Keep Drifting Fun. OR ELSE.Little did I know at that time what an impact those three simple words would come to have on the sport (five if you include my threat). It is a simple message that has been embraced around the world… thanks hugely in part to none other than Will Roegge and Joshua Herron. After meeting the two of them, and collaborating with them on the Don’t Stop video and the DMGGMASD2 Video… Will and Josh told me they wanted to make a cross-country grassroots documentary in a Volkswagen Bus along the lines of Slide America. They told me they wanted to call it… “Keep Drifting Fun”. I knew if anyone understood the ethos, and could pull it off right, it was these two. And boy have they ever pulled it off. PROPER. I am incredibly proud of these guys, and VERY honored that they chose this message to spearhead the documentary into something invariably larger than the sum of all those involved.With the help of NOS Energy Drink, the world premiere of WR+Co’s Keep Drifting Fun will be right here in Atlanta on May 10th at the Midtown Arts Cinema… the Thursday night before Round 2 of Formula Drift up at Road Atlanta. There will be two screenings, one at 8pm, and another at 9pm. The entire thing will be available to watch FOR FREE online one week after. That’s right. FREE.I am VERY proud to be a part of this in so many ways… and cannot wait for the premiere!In case you missed the trailer… it deserves a repost
If this were my reel… it would be game over – I win. This isn’t my reel… but it is still game over – they winIncredible.
rnrnA few snaps that MARLORD™ shot from the last Turner event. I snapped another axle leaving the line for my first run… but with the amazing help of Chris Stein, the car was patched up and back in thrash mode for most of the day! I cannot quite describe how amazing it felt to be back out there. GIGANTIC THANKS again to all my friends and family for getting ol’ girl fixed!Be sure to come out to Turner Field this Saturday for another all day banger! Drifting starts around 10am until the sun goes down!
