All Midwest Drift Union Pro Am events will have a driver’s cap of 50 drivers per event. If you do not register on time you will not be permitted to compete.
This is the final round of the Midwest Formula D Pro AM Series. All drivers will need to pass the Midwest Drift Union technical inspection and make sure to follow and read the rulebook. If you are not at the morning drivers meeting you will not be able to drive until the second half of the day, no questions asked. Everyone must execute event waiver before entering event venue.
Technical inspections will need to be done at an “authorized” Midwest Drift Union hub prior to a Pro Am round. The Midwest Drift Union staff will be double checking any drivers necessary on day of the event. If the car does not meet tech requirement you will be unable to participate the event and absolutely no refunds will be given back for violation of the technical rules. Safety is our main priority.
Formula D Pro AM Reward:
All competition drivers are expected to drive the complete Midwest Drift Union season. The season has been spread out so that every driver can make each any every event including this final round at Gateway Motorsports Park. The night of the final round an awards ceremony will take place to award the best drivers of the season. The top three placing driver(s) of the series will be rewarded with a Formula Drift Pro 2 License.

Midwest Drift Union events feature an open pit, so feel free to check out all the cars, and be sure to visit Vendor Row (you’ll walk right passed entering the venue). Once you’ve signed the waiver and received your wristband, you may come and go as you please via the ENTRANCE during the event (do not tear or lose your wristband, as you need to pay for another for re-entry).
Pre-Sale tickets are available online for $10 or at the gate for $15. You’ll have the choice of a standard ticket, or a “selfie” ticket that requires you to download the TICKETLEAP app. For the quickest service, be sure to have your ticket ready or TICKETLEAP app open and ready to display your “selfie” ticket at the ENTRANCE. Once you’ve signed the event waiver you’ll receive your event wristband.
Please see the venue map. Ticketing & Spectator gate open at 10am. You’ll be directed to the parking area, and proceed on foot through the under-track tunnel to the venue.
Venturing into resctricted areas will result in immediate removal from the venue for the remainder of the event. Any activity or behavior deemed unsafe by MDU Staff or venue Security results in immediate removal from the venue. No refunds will be given. We assume no responsibility for loss, theft, or damage. Obey all rules or be subject to eviction or possible prosecution.

The Midwest Drift Union once again returned to Motor City last weekend for the third running of the world famous Streets of Detroit event. Drawing drivers from all over the country and Canada, the event promised to be the most popular event the series has ever hosted. Not only was the promise kept, but the bar has been raised even higher.
