Last weekend, July 1st, Pat's Acres Racing Complex held an open drift.  We sent down our photographer to cover this local event and get some footage of Kyle Pollard in the Nissan Silvia and another car.  Upon first arrival, the amount of people already there was amazing.  This was the largest turnout of both drivers and spectators.
