Just wanted to post the latest and greatest regarding the event. Thanks for your support!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fountain, CO â€“ May 1, 2005 - The prestigious Falken Tire Pikes Peak International
Hill Climb will play host to the 4th stop of the Falken Tire Drift Showoff event
series Sunday, June 26th. For the second time in U.S. Motorsports history, Mainstream
Productions Inc. will showcase the sport of drifting at one of the oldest motorsports
events in the United States.
â€œDrifting originated in the mountains of Japan and we are very excited
about bringing the sport back to its original setting. Only this time, itâ€™s
here in the U.S. at Pikes Peak,â€ says Ken Miyoshi, President of Mainstream
Over nine professional Falken Tire drivers will drift the paved section of the
famed Pikes Peak Highway on June 25th in conjunction with the finals of the

This year the event promises to introduce a new rush of adrenalin
with the unveiling of Falken Tireâ€™s new drift vehicles including some

"Bringing the sport of drifting to the mountain roads of Pikes Peak was
the next logical step in the evolution of this exciting new sport,â€ said
Falken Tire Vice President of Sales and Marketing and Logistics Richard Smallwood.
â€œIt puts this most extreme form of motorsports on one of the most extreme
roads on the planet. It is tantamount to bungee jumping from a helicopter at
over 14,000 feet."
