NORTH AMERICAN DRIFTING SCENE
To the novice, it would appear that drifting very recently
crossed the Pacific Ocean and exploded into the world or racing not more than
two years ago, but hard core enthusiasts know different. The American Drifting
scene's roots can be traced back to the late 1980s and early 1990s. When drag
racing was exploding across America, a small number of enthusiast's fascination
was leaning toward an underground sport in Japan called canyon racing and drifting.
