Smoke at the Strip: Las Vegas ProAm Round One
Known for slot machines, hot women, and exotic luxuries, Las Vegas is the city that never sleeps.
20 miles north of the strip lies a very complex facility that goes by the name of "Las Vegas Motor Speedway."
In 2005/2006, "Vegas Drift" started hosting drift events at different tracks from the Southwestern region of the states. In 2009, Vegas drift hosted their first ProAm event at Formula Drift Las Vegas.
But in January 2014, there were 49 registered ProAm drivers and a ton of grass root guys that showed up for VegasDrift ProAm Round One.
Labeling some of these cars and drivers under the “Amateur category” wouldn't make sense.
From season veterans to first time drivers, the talent on track was tremendous.
Vegas Drift had one judged ProAm course and two grass root courses going hot at the same time.
Event judges consisted of local Formula D license holders like Forest Wang and Danny George.
Being surrounded by palm trees and the sound of roaring engines was enough to keep any car enthusiast entertained for hours.
Till next time Vegas.
P.S. we want to give a big shout out to Cameron Moore of C.Moore Racing for running the PantyHeist name on his 750 whp sc300
