Welcome to the new Midwest Drift Union!
After a year of planning and working close with USDrift, we will be hosting the MDU Shootout Championship as its own standalone event. After USDrift’s successful run of the shootout style event, we are teaming up with Brian Eggert and his team and running the same style event for our return in 2019.
The Midwest Drift Union (MDU) Shootout will be held on Friday and Saturday September 6-7 at Kil-Kare Raceway located in Xenia, Ohio.
The format of the shootout will allow for drivers to practice all day Friday, and Saturday will be the entire tandem competition with tons of action for spectators. Sunday, Drift Indy will be hosting a Sunday Funday and will be open track to competition drivers to drive with local drivers if they would like.
40 driver max, no qualifying, and double elimination tandem bracket. Registration will be broken up into two waves of 20 spots each taking place on different days at different times to ensure people have a decent chance of participating.
There are two more shootouts on the schedule for those drivers interested. USDrift will be hosting their shootout at Dominion Speedway June 21-23 and Sonoma Drift on August 16-18 at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, CA.
Both the USDrift and Midwest Drift Union Shootouts will offer $10,000 cash prize purses amongst other great prizes to be determined shortly. We will post information regarding both of these additional Shootouts as well on the Midwest Drift Union and Sonoma Drift outlets as it becomes available.
$10,000 cash prize purse (1st = $5,000, 2nd = $2,500, 3rd = $1,500, and two $500 prizes awarded at random), carbon fiber trophy cups, and Formula DRIFT PRO2 licenses valid for the 2020 or 2021 season. Additional prizes will be announced shortly.
