Bring your street metal to the track and see if you've got the skill (and, more importantly, see if you've built your hot rod properly) to go right (and left). Whether your ride is a domestic, import, car, or truck, not only can you take the whip to it and see how well it moves, but company techs from Hotchkis, Baer, Yokohama and Flowmaster will also be on hand to help analyze your performance. We'll be joined by magazine guys from all over the West Coast, too, as well as professional hot-shoes from U.S. Touring and the SCCA.

Registration forms and more information are available by calling Hotchkis at (562) 907-7757, Baer at (602) 233-1411, or by visiting their Web sites, hotchkis.net and baer.com. Attendance is $200 per person (before April 25), which includes a spectacular BBQ lunch before the afternoon driving session.

We've done all the work-just bring your metal to Buttonwillow for some heavy-duty track time and on-track tutelage via some of the sharpest tuning minds on the West Coast. The seventh annual On-Track Day is on.

2004 U.S. DRIFT ScheduleDrift 101 School, Drift Day Sessions and the National Grand Prix competitions are an integral part of each event on the 2004 U.S. Drift National Tour.

In 2004, drivers who compete in U.S. Drift National events will receive an invitation to take part in the Championship Round at year's end. It's not a points-based championship; all that's required to compete for the championship is participation in at least one U.S. Drift National event. The contest format will be the same as the U.S. Drift National events, with competitors participating in a head-to-head round and the top drivers in each group moving on to the next round.

The final will consist of eight drivers fighting for the number one spot, with the winner crowned the 2004 U.S. Drift National Champion. Cash and prizes will be paid through eighth place, but the bottom line is: In 2004 the United States will have a drift champion-will it be you?
