It’s not an easy decision to pack up your belongings and move to the other side of the world. You leave behind everything you love – your family, your friends, your home – and step into the unknown. At the beginning of this year, Fredric Aasbo did exactly that to chase a dream.

Leaving Norway behind, Fredric moved to the States to join the Team Need for Speed ranks. Although Fredric always met the fans with a smile, I’m sure there were many hard moments behind the scenes. Out of the car, Fredric had to overcome the culture shock and language barrier. In it, he had some big, Tanner Foust-sized shoes to fill.

Will Roegge and Skylar Smith edited this video that sheds some light on the driver known as the Norwegian Hammer. A special thanks to Will, Skylar, Linhbergh, Justin Shreeve and Joe Ayala for the amazing shots.
