Round 4 of the Lone Star Drift Series, The Mexican Standoff.

FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE, PLEASE INVITE YOUR FRIENDS! The Mexican Standoff | Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/events/333598686731714/)

The concept of this event was simple from the beginning. Offer a bunch of prize money and watch the competitors tear each other apart. With so much money up for grabs, how hard will the drivers go? How entertaining will it be to watch? How can we make it even more entertaining? This event was carefully placed the day after XDC finals in Dallas, so that all the out of state drivers could stick around 1 more day and try and take some of the pot. We also are going to allow drivers such as Chelsea Denofa and George Marstanovic to compete, and they have already agreed to in advance. This was cleared with both Formula Drift in advance, and every top driver in our series that is close to the winning license spots. Drivers such as Chelsea are able to win prize money, but not accumulate points in our series. They will be erased from the points race like they aren't even at the event in the final standings. For example, if Chelsea wins 1st and Will gets second, Will gets the full 1st place points in the series.

Spectators: Spectator fee is paid at the gate, not online. You may come and go as many times as you like at the event to get food, or for any other reason.
