Rhys Millen has been at the top ranks of American drifting for years. In 2007, Millen replaced the Corvette-powered GTO he was comfortable in with a smaller, more agile, turbocharged 4-cylinder Solstice roadster, and struggled to find his way back to the top. Though finding the lowest rung on the podium at the third Formula Drift event last year at Summit Point, and 2nd place at Formula Drift NJ, Rhys continued to fight gremlins through the rest of the season and couldn’t find his way back to the top of the podium. Finally, at Formula Drift Atlanta this year, the bugs were gone and Rhys made his way back to the top rung of the podium, with new teammate Dai Yoshihara making top 4 as well. We took an opportunity to catch up with Rhys about his car, his new teammate, and the rest of the season.
