THE MEXICAN STANDOFF. Mineral Wells Airport, June 25, 2011. Round 2 of the Lone Star Drift Series.
The best Texas drifting has to offer will be fighting over $2500 and the chance to drive in Formula Drift 2012. Drivers will be arriving from all over the state, and a bit beyond, bringing heavily modified drift cars with them. The first round of the Lone Star Drift Series had a fantastic turnout, with a full field of caged cars competing for $2000, and we are upping the prize money with rounds two and then again with round three ( to be announced shortly ). This round will feature a harder, faster course than the previous round, with more potential for carnage and destruction! Come bare witness to amazingly aggressive driving put on by our locals. See V8 imports, turbo inline sixes, and crazy 4 bangers all mix it up! But most of all, come see our drivers lay it all on the line! Spectators should arrive around 10 am, and the event will go on till just before dark. Spectators should also bring helmets if they have them to ride along with the drifters on course!
