Dean “Karnage” Kearney, the 2009 Prodrift Super Series champion, has
confirmed he'll be competing in Formula D next month. The final round of the 2009 American drifting
championship will be staged at the Toyota Speedway -more popularly
known as the “House of Drift”- in Irwindale, California on October 16h & 17th. Dean's ambition to compete in the USA came after
witnessing the REDBULL Drifting World Championships in 2008 at the port
of Long Beach and he wanted to follow in the footsteps of past Prodrift
Champions of 2006 Darren “DMAC” McNamara and 2007 Eric “Flat Eric” O’Sullivan.
Team Karnage will be traveling to the USA in the coming weeks to join up with the Intec Racing
crew, based out of Seattle, Washington. Intec Racing are supplying Team
Karnage with the use of their ex-Falken Nissan S14 which Mitsuru
Haruguchi drove at the end of the 2007 Formula D season.
