Keeping Up with the Joneses  

Keeping Up with the Joneses with special guest Jeff Jones On this episode we talk to Jeff Jones, the man who is capable of running both Formula Drift and Formula Drift Pro2 at the same time with the smallest available budget!! How?? Well, probably because of the enormous amounts of money that Doc (his energizing soda sponsor) gives him everytime he pours it over ice and chugs it with his friends. Well, maybe that doesn't happen, but it is still quite an achievement specially after finishing an overall 2nd place on Pro2. Enjoy!!

Aurimas "Odi" Bakchis, who was visiting Phoenix for our annual Boost Fest 2016, so we woke up early (except Paco) prepared some mimosas and rambled for a couple hours about everything but drifting.

Everybody Loves Kugayman  

Everybody Loves Kugayman with special guest Faruk Kugay Today we talk to a man whose name hasn't really shined in Formula Drift, yet everybody has heard of him, maybe not for good reasons initially but you can tell that the good things are starting to come up. The name is Faruk! The last name doesn't matter (but it's Kugay) and he is probably one of the nicest and most down to earth guys we had as guests. Not only does he know how to take criticism in a good way but he also doesn't come up with excuses for his performance and while this year hasn't been his best so far, he is still in the lead for the Rookie of the Year title (even if he is just leading by one point). It's good to hear from somebody who is still fresh into the world of professional drifting and hear about what they have gone through to make it to this level, and we are sure that a lot of the haters will change their minds about him after listening tho this episode. Enjoy!!

Maximum Gridcast  

Maximum Gridcast special episode from GridLife South at Road Atlanta. So.... where to start???? This was by far our most awesome weekend! (Except Sam, whose best weekend was the first time he had a cheesy gordita crunch from Taco Bell). GridLife South was kind enough to fly us to Road Atlanta to announce the drift portion of their incredible 3 day event. We also had the opportunity to to a bit of commenting on their Time Attack sessions with Adam and Austin from Slip Angle podcast! Great guys who also loaned us their mobile sound recorder which allowed us to do an improvised mobile podcast around the paddock. Our buddy Pat Goodin DID THE THING! and Won our Maximum Driftcast Choice award. He shed a tear or two... we hope those were happiness tears. One of the best parts of GridLife was having Andrew W.K. and Waka Flocka Flame who gave us amazing performances on Friday and Saturday nights! Andrew W.K. also went on a ride along with Forsberg and he was kind enough to leave a comment on one of our posts where he said that he has never felt so much freedom after going on a couple +145mph drifts!! The King of Party Andrew W.K. meets The King of Spring Break. FIRE!!!!   We were going to do a first (like many of the firsts from this weekend) and we were going to get strapped on the back seats of Forsberg's "La Flama Blanca" 4 seater Drift Taxi and do a podcast at 150MPH while sideways... but unfortunately one of his toe arms broke and even when he triedto fix it for us, we ran out of time... *sadface Big Thanks to Chris Stewart, the man behind GridLife. Nick Swann, Chris Forsberg, Pat Goodin, Hert Eugene Jr, Adam Jabbay, Austin Cabbot and Geoff Stoneback for your time on our podcast, your hospitality and your friendship!!
