For Immediate Release:

TAngelo Racing is happy to announce a return to drifting in 2012 with  factory support from Scion Racing. After three years as a Formula Drift judge and technical manager, Tony’s long awaited return to competition is met with personal excitement and lots of hype from his fans.

Tony will be driving the #33 Scion Tc from 2011, with a whole new look and feel. The crew will consist of drifting favorites, “DA Aces” Lindsay Ross as spotter, and Mike “Carluch” Edwards wrenching on the car. While Tony has been keeping active in overseas competition and driving with “Bloodmasters,” a drifting gang producing explosive missile car videos out of Englishtown, NJ, he’s psyched to return to FD competition.

“I couldn’t be more excited to get back into the drivers seat for 2012,” Tony said. “Scion is a brand that is very active in drifting, and is doing really fun things for 2012. I’ve always been impressed by their presence in FD, and I am totally pumped to be part of the Scion Racing Family.”

Scion Racing is excited for the partnership as well. “We’re happy Tony’s coming to drive for us. He’s a well-known and iconic American drifting figure. Having him represent Scion Racing is going to be great. We can’t wait to see what the future holds.”

Tony Angelo and the crew are determined to lead a team focused on fun, making noise, and taking the “handsomest drift team” title away from NFS. Be sure to keep up with team on Twitter ( @TAngelodrift ) and facebook ( facebook.com/tangelodrift ) to see what Tony Angelo has in store for 2012.

Supporting the team further will be: Alpinestars, Electric Sunglasses, Exedy, Drift Alliance, Brian Crower (BC) and much more TBA!

Road Atlanta and Formula Drift recently created a once-in-a-lifetime VIP experience package for one lucky Drift Atlanta fan! Here’s the catch….the winner had to design the new Drift Atlanta logo! The current logo needed a fresh new look so the contest encouraged our creative and dedicated fans to demonstrate what Drift Atlanta is all about…in a logo. There was very little criteria given, just design a logo for the most youthful and thrilling event that Road Atlanta hosts.

After receiving hundreds of submissions, we carefully looked through and picked out the new Drift Atlanta logo that best represented the look and feel of the event. Road Atlanta and Formula Drift are proud to announce Taylor Apt from Buena Park, California as our winner! Taylor wins an awesome VIP package for Drift Atlanta this Spring that includes 4 tickets to the event, a drift ride along, VIP seating in the announcer tower and more!

We would like to thank all the Road Atlanta and formula Drift fans for participating in this contest and look forward to seeing you all at the event, May 11-12!
