Getting ready for 2008!!
Start the year off great!!

Ok people, I am helping the ifo guys promote this event, more info can be found here: www.importfaceoff.com

The event scheduled for 2/24/08, will be at a noproblemraceway(NPR), its a full race track that has a drag strip and a 1.8mile roadcourse(where drifting will be held). More info about the track can be found here: www.noproblemraceway.com

The event scheduled for 3/16/08 will be at Red River Raceway(RRR). More info about the track can be found here: www.redriverraceway.net

From my past expirences, I've been to the Ifo at NPR very often, almost every year, and it is very fun. I love that roadcourse and with everybody there with the car show and drag event, it adds to the fun.

The event at RRR, from my expirence, I've only been there once, and it is a fun event also. Besides not being able to drift on a roadcourse, the parking lot setup is differnt, and just as fun.

There is usually a drift competition with cash payouts in previous years, but I'm not sure if it will be the same this year.

As time progresses, I will find out.

This thread's purpose is to help generate interests from the surrounding southern area of zilvia. If you have any questions, just reply here or email me.

Thanks in advance and hope to see you guys out there!

here are some pictures from previous years at npr:

05 Andy Sapp, Aaron Loosey, etc.

also, i have more pictures from other events at npr, that i'll post later.

see ya there!!!

In referance to RRR,
so far the only drift event has been the Street Battle event the IFO people did. Im hoping theres a drift event for that, if that is the case, i am definately going to be there. Im definatley gonna make an effort to go to npr too, but depends on school scheduling.

heres pics from rrr street battle

IFO here in dayton the times it was here had drift events, i even got to compete, but sucked... I met the guys who put them on seemed like they know what they were doing. IFO in Louisville /jeffersonville IN this year kinda sucked, car show was a joke, no drag race action, and the drift event was continually int interrupted by some horrible bike stunt team.

hopefully this year they will bring it back to dayton, but not likely since the owner of the local track didnt get along with them very well, or anyone from our personal experiance with the track.

heres a few vids...


kinda crap, but u can see the track...well the part of the track that they allow drifting...

no drift comp this year, just FREE open road course time for the experienced drifters. Once I figure out the exact drift times, I'll post... will probably only be about 2-3 hours of RC time. We have to use the track most of the day for drag qualifying and eliminations. If it's wet or raining though, which it probably will as usually, the entire day will be spent on the road course.

Other activities will be the usual... car/truck/bike show, bikini contest, burnout contest, bloody midgets, MMA, etc. Series info on www.ImportFaceOff.net

Thanks for posting those pics of previous events. The asian girl that in those pics is a porn star now. Her vids are all over the net, LOL.
