NWN Motorsports kicked off spring of 2016 with a car show and open drift. Evergreen Drift officials announced that EVD ProAm (Sanctioned by Formula Drift) will be running the 5/8ths layout for April 9th at Evergreen Speedway!

Several drivers showed up as gates opened at 9am. Slightly before 11am I ran around the pits and snapped a few shots.

Nate Snyder’s Kouki S14 has been turning heads during Evergreen Drift’s Winter Drift season. Premiering a new motor in November 2015, Snyder has been slowly adding power adders, opting for a centrifugal supercharger. He’s estimating about 410+whp all work done at SVPerformance.

Gaston Morrison out of Vancouver, British Columbia brought down his Onevia for last Sunday’s practice round. Right off the bat he was initiating the 5/8ths bank with no hesitation, the rain kept all the drivers in slow motion. Dry condition’s in an El Nino season is a rare occasion.

Winter builds for ProAm 2016 are still under wraps, with Round 1 a month out there’s still time for our local talent to button up their builds. April 3rd is an Open Drift that may showcase more practice rounds. Keep your eyes peeled!
