Hey everyone, it's your boy Ben Hobson in the house! I've been a motorhead since birth and started shredding dirt on my first dirtbike when I was just four years old. From there, I took on the AMA series and crushed it for multiple years. But my love affair with motorsports really kicked into high gear in 2012 when I discovered drifting - and let me tell you, it was like love at first slide!

In 2014, I made the tough decision to sell my beloved mustang, but it was all worth it when I found the ultimate gem: a 1995 Nissan 240SX S14. It was then that I knew I was destined for one thing and one thing only - to dominate the Formula Drift circuit. As I poured my heart and soul into building my dream machine and honing my driving skills, I took on the pro-am series Lonestar Drift in 2018. And guess what? I went all in and took home the 2020 Championship, securing my Formula Drift ProSpec license!

Now, fast forward a few years and I'm beyond pumped to be driving for the one and only Odi Bakchis in the 2023 season! It's been a wild ride, but I can't wait to rev those engines, tear up the track, and see all you amazing fans in the pits this season! Let's get this party started!
