Formula DRIFT Renews Relationship With Evergreen Speedway;
Series Extends Partnership with the Venue Into the 2018 Season

Long Beach, Calif. – February 24, 2016 – Formula DRIFT presented by Blackvue has renewed their relationship with Evergreen Speedway for three years extending into 2018. Since 2005, the venue has hosted the Series in the Pacific Northwest.

“Formula DRIFT’s priority has been to establish a foundation for the sport of Drifting,” said Jim Liaw, president and co-founder of Formula DRIFT. “We found our home in the Pacific Northwest with Evergreen Speedway back in 2005. Since then, we have grown to be one of the largest events at the venue. By renewing our relationship with our third longest running venue for three more seasons only makes sense.”

In 2005, Formula DRIFT began the relationship with Evergreen Speedway. 2016 marks the 11th consecutive season for the Series to return to the venue, which is the 3rd longest running relationship for the Series with a track only followed by Irwindale Speedway and Road Atlanta. The event draws one of the largest attended crowds outside of Southern California showcasing the popularity of the sport in the Pacific Northwest. The event’s popularity stems from the exciting action on track. The course is one of the most challenging on the circuit and the variable weather conditions adds a dynamic element to the competition.

“We are thrilled to be a Formula DRIFT track and extremely proud of long-term relationship,” said Evergreen Speedway president, Doug Hobbs. “Having Formula DRIFT sign another three-year contract is outstanding to the region. The whole Seattle market loves Formula DRIFT as much as we do! The economic impact to Snohomish County and the State of Washington is sizable.”

Formula DRIFT returns to Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, WA on August 5-6, 2016 for Round 6, Throwdown. Tickets are available now on www.formulad.com starting at $34.90 online for a one-day Friday ticket.

The 2016 Formula DRIFT Championship begins on April 9-10 in Long Beach, CA. Tickets can be purchased throughwww.formulad.com, Ticketmaster outlets, and the Long Beach Convention Center box office.

Tell the EPA to Withdraw Its Proposal to Prohibit the Conversion of Vehicles Into Racecars

Posted on

 

The American love affair with automobiles includes watching and participating in motorsports. For decades Americans have converted their street vehicles into racecars, from pre-World War II classics to modern era performance cars. It has brought joy and jobs to millions. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has issued a proposed rule that would do away with this time honored tradition. It would outlaw the conversion of any type of emissions-certified vehicle into a racecar, and make it illegal to sell any emissions-related parts for those cars. The Clean Air Act prohibits the EPA from regulating racecars. Tell EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to remove this provision from the “Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards for Medium- & Heavy-Duty Engines-Phase 2″ rule.
