    Xtreme Drift Circuit Announces 2010 Championship Schedule and Championship Prizes

    January 4, 2009 (Tustin, Calif.) – The Xtreme Drift Circuit, drifting’s first nationwide Pro-Am championship, is proud to announce its six-round 2010 championship season with events across the country – launching with drifting’s Holy Grail of venues, and culminating in a finale with the Formula Drift Pro-Am Nationals.

    The XDC will begin its season at the ‘House of Drift’, Toyota Speedway at Irwindale in Southern California, on March 20, 2010. From there, the series heads to Las Vegas Motor Speedway on May 22, and then to the east coast on June 19 at Summit Point Raceway. August 7 will see the XDC at Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey, and then to a brand new drifting venue the Texas Motor Speedway on September 25. The season will finish on October 16 at Firebird Raceway in tandem with the Formula Drift Pro-Am Nationals.

    Working in conjunction with the Formula Drift Pro Championship, the XDC prize package will provide a huge reward to the drivers committing to the 2010 season. The drivers finishing in the top three of the XDC championship will earn Formula Drift Pro Championship licenses for the 2011 season, while the top placers in each XDC event will be automatically granted an invitation to the Pro-Am Nationals at the end of the season.

    “Our 2010 XDC Championship schedule hits several major drifting markets throughout the United States,” said Michael Munar, President of XDC Events, Inc. “As a platform for our drivers to advance to the next level of drifting competition, we are very happy with our venues and circuits. We couldn’t be more excited about starting our series at the legendary Irwindale Speedway. It will be a great way to launch the XDC and start unveiling the future stars of drifting.”

    US Drift will be staffing and managing the XDC, and technical inspection will be handled by Formula Drift as part of the XDC’s partnership with the series. The series will soon publish its rulebook, which closely mirrors the Formula Drift Pro-Am rulebook.

    texas.jpg Texas Motor Speedway is a speedway located in the northernmost portion of the U.S. city of Fort Worth, Texas -- the portion located in Denton County, Texas. The track layout is very similar to Atlanta Motor Speedway and Lowe's Motor Speedway (formerly Charlotte Motor Speedway). The track measures 1.5 miles (2.4 km) around and is banked 24 degrees in the turns, and is of the quad-oval design, where the front straightaway juts outward slightly. The track is owned by Speedway Motorsports, Inc., the same company that owns Atlanta and Lowe's Motor Speedways, as well as the short-track Bristol Motor Speedway. This will be the first time, Drifting will take place at this prime venue!

    Firebird International Raceway is a quarter-mile dragstrip and road course in Chandler, Arizona, just outside Phoenix. It opened in 1983 and hosts the NHRA's Arizona Nationals. It held one IMSA GT race, in 1987. Due to its warm climate, it is a popular winter testing spot for NHRA and IndyCar teams. XDC will tag team with Formula Drift to host the 2010 Pro-Am Nationals at this year-end venue! Drifting will lay claim at this famous venue as an annual hot-spot and finale event!
