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.

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. Spectators will be able to attend all events of the Lone Star Drift Series for a reasonable admission.
In addition to Formula Drift Pro-Am, Lone Star Drift also runs the Texas Street Legal (TXSL) series. Both series competitions are held during the same two-day events. TXSL is designed as a more affordable series for drivers who want to compete in fun, reliable, and street-able cars that can be driven to and from events.
Although all events include a competition, new and beginner drivers are encouraged to show up, practice, and have a blast. To learn more about the Formula Drift Pro-Am or TXSL series visit Lone Star Drift on Facebook or check out Lonestardrift.com.
