The Texas based Formula Drift Pro-Am Series, Lone Star Drift, is back for 2016! Round 1 takes place March 19 at Gulf Greyhound Park near Houston, TX.  New for 2016, the series now consists of seven rounds versus only six in the past. Two events are to be held at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, TX – a venue many will recognize from the professional Formula Drift circuit.

About Lone Star Drift

The Lone Star Drift: Formula Drift Pro-Am Series offers amazing drifting in the state of Texas. Winners of the seven round points-series are eligible to progress to Formula Drift. Each event includes Saturday practice followed by trackside parties at sundown. Sundays include morning practice and afternoon competition.
