So I am really excited to announce that I’ve joined forces with my friends at Jonathan Nerren Racing to run the DVM Mustang up in the Formula Drift Canada Series this season. It will be a 3-car effort with Jonathan, Tyler Nelson and myself all running under the guidance of Nic Snyder and the Jonathan Nerren Racing crew.
The FD Canada championship It’s a seven event series all taking place in the Montreal/Quebec region. I’ve heard the fans are really drift-crazy up there so I’m looking forward to making some northern friends and seeing for myself why people rave about that part of the world so much. Since it is their primary drift series, the FD Canada events attract large crowds of 8,000-12,000 and the events are full of activities for fans to take in besides the drift competition. Product vendors, car shows, music acts and many other activities await spectators as they spend the day in a sea tire-smoke and screaming engines. The drivers to the north are very skilled and have some really fast cars (having run with a few of them when they’ve ventured south) so we’ll have to bring our a-game if we want to bring home any trophies.
This opportunity comes about thanks to the folks Zenna Tires for whom the three of us will all be driving. I got a brief taste of their product last week at the US Drift HyperFest event held at one of my all-time favorite tracks, Virginia International Raceway. I can tell you that the grip level is amazing and the Mustang is going to be very happy.
So now Nic and the guys are busy getting the Mustang ready for battle, with which some of the toughest competition will undoubtedly come from my very formidable teammates Jonathan and Tyler. It should be a really fun experience and after budget challenges and car building exercises, I’m excited to be competing in my first full season in a long time.

Jun 17-18 FD Canada- 1 & 2 @ Montmagny Speedway, Montmagny QC
