When the formula D championship is held there are about 50 drifters that are competing to be known as the best drifter in the United States. As like all other pro races they take place on tracks around the U.S.

People think that racing is racing and its all the same well drifting is different and isn't really racing. As drifting becomes more and more famous there will be more and more tracks to be built to handle all the events.
