Happy Ending - Drifting Crashes

It's a fine line between pleasure and pain at Irwindale. At the House of Drift, drivers can get big points from the judges and big ups from the crowd by buzzing the imposing concrete K-rails. Fanning the banners or even lightly scuffing the wall earns the fickle favor of the spectators, while a harder hit will only leave bumpers, body parts and a little bit of your ego on the track.

Haven't seen anything this bad since Jonny tried to parallel park in Japan.

Daigo Saito put his big Chaser up against the wall all weekend.

Here's how the other half lives.

Rhys didn't hit anything, it's just wild how the strain of drifting broke his brakes.

Taka Aono just made your Corolla a little more valuable.

Victory! Kawabata picks up a souvenir from Irwindale. Way better than a T-shirt.
