EVD59 - Grassroots / ProAm Round 1

Sunday, May 1, 2011

The kickoff to the Evergreen Drift Competition season!

Evergreen Drift is a proud member of the NOS Drift Tour.

Join us for a day jam packed full of drifting competition with both the Grassroots and Evergreen Drift Northwest ProAm championship.

Grassroots is a Top 32 competition that allows cars of power levels to compete on an even footing on the 3/8ths competition course head to head in four round championship series.

The ProAm championship is a grueling five round series of the best drifters in the Northwest competing for a overall purse of $1600 per event and three professional Formula Drift licenses . They duel door to door at 80 miles per hour inches from the wall on the same professional 5/8ths course that Formula Drift uses.

Grandstands are just $10 (under 12 free!)

NW Built is hosting the Forum Meet showoff. For $15 per car/driver you can join the showcase of the cool cars the Northwest has to offer. Please note, due to safety there is no vehicle re-entry allowed for the forum showoff. Walk in re-entry is no problem so grab a ride with a friend who parked outside if needed!

Also enjoy live music by DJ Dunn Dirty and get your free NOS from the NOS team!
