Of all the drifting organizations in the U.S., Formula Drift is probably the most successful in terms of attendance and getting the word out on the fledgling motorsport. In an ironic twist of fortune, however, only two drivers have won all the races since the inception of the series last year, and both pilot domestic vehicles. Samuel Hubinette has won four events in his DC-backed Viper and Rhys Millen's won twice in his GM-backed GTO. Last weekend in Houston Ford finally got to share in the domestic grand standing thanks to an 18-year-old named Ken Gushi who took top honors at Reliant Park in a Mustang sponsored by Toyo Tires and Ford Racing Performance Parts. Not a single vehicle from Japan, where drifting itself originated, has won an event in the U.S.
