Edelbrock Presents the 2019 Season of Grassroots Drift Competition
Sitting in the rain shadow region known as Rogue Valley less than 30 miles north of California, the city of Medford, Oregon, is often spared from the inclement weather that the Pacific Northwest is well known for. Its considerably warmer and drier climate makes Medford the perfect home for the sideways antics of Drift Evolution, the grassroots drifting series that began in 2008.
“I like to think we do a lot of good, from keeping drifting off the streets and on the track where it’s safe for everyone, to providing much-needed funding for charities like Active Duty Operational Support (ADOS) for the local National Guard.” — Corey Harris of Drift Evolution
In spite of its rapid growth over the past 11 years, DE remains one of the best grassroots drifting events and a favorite among local and West Coast drifters. Those with a passion for drifting follow this series because of its great family-oriented atmosphere with a home track that is the perfect venue for beginning and seasoned racers alike.
As a huge proponent of grassroots racing, Edelbrock has stepped up as the title sponsor for the 2019 Drift Evolution Series at Jackson County Sports Park. Each of the eight Drift Evolution events will have a different theme to keep things fun for both racers and spectators.
“Drift Evolution is a southern Oregon grassroots drift series,” says DE’s Corey Harris. “I like to think we do a lot of good, from keeping drifting off the streets and on the track where it’s safe for everyone, to providing much-needed funding for charities like Active Duty Operational Support (ADOS) for the local National Guard.”
To support Drift Evolution and its causes, and to enjoy some good old grassroots drifting at its finest, make it a point to attend one or more of these DE races this year:
