Welcome to Thunderhill Raceway…WEST

Those of us who have been involved with drifting in the Northern California area for the last 8 years or so are familiar with Thunderhill Raceway being that it used to be the only place where we could go to drive. We used to run the 3mi section located on the East side, but this past weekend (Aug. 2) we were a part of the few who attended the grand opening of the new 2mi extension for the west side. I had to make it a point to be a passenger in Crick's car for his first lap around this.....

Golden Gate Drift Rd. 3 (TBTM Podium)

When you attend a drift event you expect to see a show right? Well I don' think anyone interpreted what kind of show we would see on the weekend of July 27th 2014. There was such a great turnout of good drivers at this event we knew we were in for something special. Though running way late...Chris "Crick" Filippi managed to arrive at the track just as qualifying was starting. Crick was up till 2am the previous night repairing the damage that happened at Sonoma Drift, and then woke up at.....

Sonoma Drift Rd. 2…The end of 2014

Low wind, bright sun, and a great crowd...This is was the recipe used for Sonoma Drift Rd. 2 at Sonoma Raceway. I don't think we will see a better weathered race day all year compared to this day. Day 1 of 2 consisted of a lot of drivers getting  grasp of the course layout with a whole day dedicated to practice. While most people were practicing the layout for the competition the next day; we had a couple drivers such as Crick Filippi trying the 360 degree drift going into turn 4. Though it.....

WSIR Top Drift Rd. 2

These past few weeks sure have been eventful with Vegas Pro-Am, Top Drift, and Sonoma Drift. I'm sure you all know how hard it is to schedule your time, money, and life to attend these events as a driver or media personnel. Our driver Joe "Joe-Show" Tardiff has been proving his dedication since the 2013 Season by attending literally every event he possibly could. Joe managed to make his way back to Top Drift for their Round 2 competition that took place on the infamous Horse-Thief Mile......

Golden Gate Drift Rd. 2

There’s California; home of the Golden Gate Bridge…and then there’s Northern California; home of Golden Gate Drift! The weekend of April 19th, The TBTM drivers and myself made our way to our first Pro-Am event as a team. We were able to get all the vehicles ready and prepped in time to compete in GGD’s Round 2 event at Stockton 99 Raceway. As stated by Luke, the founder of the GGD series, “This wasn’t going to be a walk in the park to make top 16.” As the morning unfolded and the.....

Tardiff Tuesday: The 2014 look of Joe Tardiff!

When the off season is in session what are your usual plans for your car? For most it would be giving their car some TLC after a long season of abuse, but for our driver Joe it was a little more in depth than that. After a full year running his Ford 302 he chose to step it up for 2014 by throwing in a LS1. The LS dyno'd at 380whp, which is a nice little increase and stepping stone for him to get used to this season. After our first Wednesday Night Drift here at Sonoma Raceway you can tell Joe.....
