Watch what happens when Larry McReynolds (one of NASCAR's most successful and recognized crew chiefs) hops in Ryan's FD car and goes for a lap around Evergreen Speedway!
Ryan comes back again for another Tuerck'd bash at PARC. And just like last time it brought a ton of local drift fans together to see some pros and drift culture celebrities play together on the track.
The driver list was as follows: Matt Coffman, Ryan Tuerck driving Brett Williams drift taxi, Forrest Wang, Alec Hohnadell, Cameron Moore, Hertech of Hert Life, Rob Parsons "Chair Slayer", Pat Goodin, Justin Pawlak, Travis Reeder The Villains Team and Rob Primo.

Round 5 in Montreal was one for the books with lots of good battles and more carnage. Ryan had a strong qualifying run putting him in 2nd place going into the top 32. Ryan had 2 good battles making his way into the great 8. His first battle was a rematch with Ken Gushi, this time Ryan got the win. After battling Gushi Ryan ended facing up against his good friend Chris Forsberg, although they are good friends they are also fierce opponents when it comes time to do battle. After some really good runs Forsberg ended up getting a well deserved win. See you in Seattle!
What I really liked about this article written by Mike Garrett at SpeedHunters is that it highlights why a car like Alec's is cool and why it is really a breed of it's own. As Mike points out so many drift enthusiasts are constantly comparing which of the 2 styles is superior. Namely traditional Japanese drifting verses Formula Drift and what has evolved into the American style drifting. Why compare them at all? What is wrong with appreciating roots as well as evolution. Which is exactly what Alec's car is being a very popular Japanese chassis with a very capable american power platform, a torque happy blown LS.
Never has a single Formula Drift event caused such a reaction or garnered so much hate on social media than the 2016 New Jersey round a couple of weekends back. While I expected to see some backlash from all the drama of Forrest Wang quitting and then coming back again, I had no idea that it would fundamentally change the sport from here on out. - Speed Hunters
