Car drifting and abandoned malls aren’t normally used in the same sentence, but that is exactly what happened when pro driver Chris Forsberg decided to take his 1,000-horsepower Nissan 370Z to the empty Hawthorne Mall in Los Angeles.

In 2007, Chris, with the help of his Crew Chief, Kevin Wells, started his own team, Chris Forsberg Racing. His greatest achievement came in 2009 when he earned the title of 2009 Formula Drift Champion as well as Triple Crown Champion. Forsberg was not only the first driver to win both titles in the same year but is the first driver to win a Championship whose career originated in grassroots drifting. After over 10 years of competition, he built a reputation for his high speed precision driving skills, and became a major supporter of the drift community worldwide.
