Earlier this week, we featured a video by YAER Productions that showed Ryan Tuerck giving everyone a first hand look at Irwindale Speedway prior to Round 7. If you missed out on that post, check it out here. One of the web’s most popular sites, Jalopnik.com, decided to showcase this video as well. It’s refreshing to see such well-known sites support the drifting community and great video coverage.
