Nitto Tire’s Auto Enthusiast Day

Nitto Tire hosted their second Auto Enthusiast Day this past weekend at Angel Stadium in Anahiem, California. A few Formula DRIFT drivers came out to put on drift demos for the spectators to promote Formula DRIFT’s closing event in October. I unfortunately woke up late like I always do and missed out on all of the drifting. Aside from the drifting, there was also a car show held, which is what I am covering here.

I unfortunately was unable to get photos of all the drift cars because there were so many people surrounding them.
