Before automobiles, racing was done on foot with pit crews on hand to massage callused toes and replace tired legs with brand new tires. Witness the spectacle of historic competition with today’s Groupon to Xtreme Drift Circuit (a $30 value). Children 10 and younger are admitted free with an accompanying adult. Choose from two options:
• For $15, you get three tickets for the XDC qualifying round on Saturday, July 2nd from noon to 8 p.m. (a $30 value).
• For $15, you get two tickets for the XDC Top 32 National Drift Competition on Sunday, July 3rd from noon to 8 p.m. (a $30 value).
The XDC national competition brings professional and amateur drivers from across the globe, many of whom fund their own vehicular endeavors, to compete against each other against a backdrop of live entertainment and exhibitions. Inspired by the techniques of racing legend Kunimitsu Takahashi and action movies lacking structured plots, drifting involves intentional fishtailing and a high-speed execution of turns. Qualifying takes place on Saturday for the main event, which will be held on Sunday, when 32 drivers and one profoundly confused bear will compete in the Top 32 National Drift Competition.
Maintain target heart rates in between drifting with an amalgam of internally combusted exhibitions, spectacles, and entertainments. Take in a display of after-market ingenuity at the REMIX car show, or feed the need for fastness with National Auto Sport Association road racing and endurance kart racing. DJs and live acts provide the score for the days' events, playing hits such as, "Wait, What?" and "Say That Again (There's a Bunch of Really Loud Cars Racing Around)."
