It seems like it was just last week that the Super Drift Crown Round 2 took place at Portland International Raceway, but here we are with Round 3.

Similar to previous events Super Drift Crown and its field of drivers did not fail to bring excitement and craziness that drifting has to offer. With a field of about 12 cars for Round 3 the crowd was able to watch each driver get amazing amounts of seat time and practice runs to really get comfortable with the layout. As the day went on the speeds, angles, smoke, and aggressiveness in driving just kept growing and growing. Team Drift drivers Nikolay Kulakevich (#85) and Dimka Ariskin (#47) along with driver Cameron Moore (#33) put on great displays of control and smoke on the track, which lead to some great competition during the judged runs.
Drivers were also able to test their skills in Turns 1 through 7, driving the layout in two directions. This made for more high speed drifting along with a cement wall as a rear clipping point to add to the level of excitement for the fans. Again in conjunction with the drift competition taking place, Thatssiick.com hosted a car show/meet for spectators to be able to show their car and have a good time with fellow car enthusiast while having their car on display.
