Another story this week, i’m feeling pretty cheerful after doing a review for the 2010 season. I saw on the score board a guy that ended up in second place right behind Mike Feiock. A guy from a place where they are grateful for what they really have and do all of the work to their own cars. That guy is Cody Tobe an Ohio native that throws down and highly represents what he stands for. You always see him in the pits talking to his fellow friends giving them tips on how to drive better and how to just gun for it and not be scared “whats the worst that’s going to happen?”.
Staying fresh and having fun is what this guy is about, he was unable to make it to Pro-Am nationals due to important obligations like his family, that to me is a real man putting his family in first place before something he knows he can later go for. I can definitely say that there is no LOL in Cody and he means business when he is driving, just at Street Life Tour this year he went into an amazing battle against Mike Pollard that ones that were there wont forget.
“Why dont you talk about cars on your post Edgar”. Well, the answer to that is simple, it’s another 240sx that rips has modifications and comes out to the track to drive. This one is particular is another guy that goes from swap to swap like Bill “Highlife” Cook and dont think will ever be happy with what power-plant anything is running. Good job this year Cody, cant wait to hang at the track in 2011.
Indianapolis, Indiana – June 16 th, 2010 – Some were wondering where Drift Indy was and whether or not it was dead. Well, it isn’t dead. They have been working very hard on other avenues with the drifting motorsport locally, as well as helping get more involvement with the drift community.
With the third round of the Xtreme Drift Circuit coming up this weekend at Summit Point, West Virginia, Drift Indy is very proud to announce the formation of their official Pro-Am Drift Team. Bill Cook and Mike Feiock, both out of Indianapolis, have officially decided to take on this trip together to compete against the drivers of the Xtreme Drift Circuit with the help of sponsors and friends.
“I am very excited to drive with different drivers, on a different track, away from the Midwest,” says Feiock. “I think that both Bill and I can go out and have some serious fun, doing what we do best”.
In recent months both Cook and Feiock have attended a number of events locally ran by the Midwest Drift Union where both have been tested on going fast and technical. “Formula D licensed driver Derek King has been a great inspiration and push for us to go out and drive with different competition after he came home from Irwindale last season” said Feiock.
Cook is very excited where drifting has gone locally and wants to simply go out and have fun again out east. This could be a real test after Cooks Pro-Am appearance in 2008 at Virginia International Raceway where he was having consistent issues with his car. “I know this could be a real test for both Mike and I driving 12 hours away from home and planning a successful event with the rest of the “team”, or my friends as I like to call them.”
“There is no better person than Mike to be there pushing me to drive better along with our other Drift Indy brothers in the pits”. We expect to definitely have fun, drive with amazing talent and see what kind of experience and tips we can gain from the judges Matt Petty, Mike Schneider, and Formula D champion Chris Forsberg.
