Shane Says: I started drifting six years ago on the streets of Detroit. Since then I realized that it's something that I would have never progressed at unless I was on a track. I started competing back in 2009, where I took 9th place in my first competition. My driving style is what separates me from almost everyone else on the track. I’m not afraid to push myself and my car to the limit, putting my car within inches of the wall just because the fans love it. I am always pushing one step further to become a better driver. I have a very aggressive driving style, because I have been driving an underpowered car it has forced me compensate with driving ability over the car doing most of the work for me. This year the '83 Celica is out and the '06 GTO is in. Should be a good year.
