The Formula DRIFT Finals
This past weekend marked the end of the sixth season of the Formula DRIFT Professional Championship. The event was held at the Toyota Speedway at Irwindale to a sold out crowd of over 10,000 guests. The ID Agency has been the agency of record for Formula DRIFT and managed over 250 media guests that included outlets such as The LA Times, Long Beach Press Telegram, Super Street, and Motor Trend magazine.
Ryan Tuerck took home the event victory, but the championship was won by Chris Forsberg in the NOS Energy Drink / Maxxis Tire Nissan 350Z. Forsberg also was the winner of the Tires.com Triple Crown bonus prize. This marked the first time that a driver has won both awards in the same season. The ID Agency also performs the PR for NOS Energy Drink and will be issuing a special gift to media members that will commemorate this historical win.
Along with all the drifting action there was additional entertainment for all the fans that included the Famous Stars and Straps stunt bike demo, Jtuned Auto Gallery, and a performance by the Far East Movement, performers of the hit song, "Girls on the dance floor." ID brought Famous Stars and Straps to Formula DRIFT and helped co-market the event to Famous' unique fan base of music, action sports, and art culture.
