Matt Vankirk started drifting in 2011 and realized early on that it was something he loved. After a full year of getting accustomed to the motorsport he jumped fully into the local Formula Drift Pro-Am series with a stock engine Nissan 240SX in 2012. Over the next three years he built the car you see on this page. It wasn't always pretty and it was last year that he unveiled the updated body that was transformed with the help of Villins Kustoms (a fully airbrushed paint job). He also figured out some of the bugs with the engine and drivetrain and was highly competitive at every event he attended in 2015.
After countless nights preparing and long days at the track he was able to finish his ProAm season in first place - netting him a Formula Drift Pro2 license. Matt has become most well-known for his aggressive driving style and insanely close proximity in tandem battles. For 2017 Matt plans on competing in Formula Drift Pro 2 and any ProAm rounds he is able to attend. Photos by ImportMeet.com & Shinchoku. Profile photo by Justin Gepner.
