JEFF JONES: HEART OF A CHAMPION
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.
