Drift Style, Formula Drift racing series premieres in High-Def
Wednesday on RUSH HD
This brand new series on Rush HD highlights the 2007 season of the
"Formula Drift" racing series, the hard-charging drivers in the
competition, and the sport's lively fan base. In the "drift" style of
racing, drivers race head-to-head and literally screech around tracks.
The winners are chosen based on line, speed, angle and overall style.
In Formula Drift, the only things more colorful than the souped-up
cars are the drivers behind the wheels. RUSH HD is the nation's
first-ever high-definition channel dedicated to showcasing the
adrenaline junkies of racing and adventure sports.
