So this season I got offered the opportunity to shoot with Ben Lewallen for his second ProAm season. I am extremely excited to shoot with Ben and meet tons of new people this year at the events. I am also excited to improve my videography skills with camera work and editing.
Unfortunately, Ben had to borrow a friends car for the drift day this weekend but he should be up and running with his LS powered coupe in a couple of weeks. Thanks to Brian Skiba for loaning the car out for the day.
What can I say, this past weekend at CFRC was a blast. This was my 2nd drift event filming and I can't wait for the next. Thanks much to Ben Lewallen and Tricia Beyczi for letting me travel with them. Big thanks to Brian and Todd Phillips and everyone associated with the SWD program for putting on such a great event!

Follow Ben Lewallen through his ups and downs in the 2013 Formula D Pro Am series. Gresham Motorsports Park marks the first round of FD Pro Am which led to some hard times once hitting the wall in qualifying. Ben was able to piece the car back together enough to drive but it still wasn't enough to finish qualifying.
Round 2 consisted of a high-speed and technical course at Central Florida Race Complex (CFRC) where despite the weather, Ben managed to get it together and qualify 8th in the field. Unfortunately a torrential downpour caused the event to be cancelled on Saturday.
Big thanks to Ben's sponsors this year and everyone who helped out including family and friends.

Stay tuned for Episode 2 when Ben and the crew head out to Zmax Dragway in Concord,NC to stomp on some home turf.
Round 3 of Streetwise Drift Pro Am. Ben finished in 14th overall and the event got rained on once again. It was a decent day for both of us. Thanks to everyone who came out to support Ben and his team five6racing.com for the event. We hope to see you guys next time in August at Z Max Dragway for Rd. 4 of Streetwise Drift Pro Am.
