JEFF JONES: HEART OF A CHAM­PION

Pasmag (USA) - - I SSUE PREVIEW - STORY BY Ja­cob Leve­ton | Photography by Ja­cob Leve­ton & David Karey

In mo­tor­sports, you'll of­ten hear sto­ries of sac­ri­fice and heart­break. Driv­ers who spend years work­ing their way through the ranks on a nickel and dime bud­get, hours and hours spent on the road tow­ing to and from events, all at the sliver of hope of mak­ing it `pro.' Drift­ing is no dif­fer­ent. While the path to pro­fes­sional drift­ing has be­come clearer in re­cent years, the num­ber of driv­ers who are able to make a liv­ing from drift­ing is very min­i­mal. Sev­eral of the top pros still hold reg­u­lar jobs or op­er­ate shops to make a liv­able wage. Many driv­ers who make it to For­mula D will only last two to four years be­fore mov­ing on to other ven­tures.
