KMS Drift Championship Series 2012

KMS stormed into Georgia on Feb. 11 to bring its first drift event of the 2012 KMS Drift Championship Series to South Georgia MotorSports Park. Spectators from all over endured the frigid and windy temperatures to watch drifters navigate through the challenging course and drag racers fly down the strip. Also adding to this spectacular event were the numerous car show and sound off competitors who used their rides to express their personal style by with both interior and exterior customization to bring life to their unique vision.

Special thanks to Domino’s and Wing Stop who sponsored the pizza and wing eating contest – those boys can eat! This event definitely made a statement about the grassroots of this form of motorsport.
