The 2014 Formula Drift season has flown by. With only two events remaining as of this writing (FD Texas and FD Irwindale) we decided to share some of our favorite photos, from the first five events.
A Great look back at Will Parsons’ timeline, dating back to his childhood roots!
Will Parsons has been all over the United States competing in different series. He has even driven with some of the pro’s, like Daigo Saito and was teammates with Chelsea Denofa. Will has the experience, talent, and dedication to make it in FD.
This is “The Will Parsons Project.”

The 2012 season was packed with high powered fun and excitement. The Xtreme Drift Circuit added new courses, new drivers, and even crowned a new champion. NonStopTuning’s Chelsea DeNofa (back to back 2010 & 2011 champion) was no longer a full time driver in the series, having left to pursue what would become a very successful rookie year in Formula Drift, and that left the XDC crown up for grabs.
The NST squad had a great year in 2012. The combination of Will Parsons, Joshua Steele, and Chelsea DeNofa went on to record more podium finishes than any other team in the series. Will Parsons continued his streak as the only driver to have competed in every U.S. round of XDC, and continues to hold the record for being the only driver to have finished in the top four, at four consecutive events; more than 100 competitors have driven in the series since March of 2010. NST was also the only team in the 2012 series to have two drivers finish the season in the top eight of the points chase.
1st – Forrest Wang – 449 points
2nd – Mike Pollard – 334 points
3rd – Nate Hamilton – 330 points
4th – Chelsea Denofa – 312 points
5th – Will Parsons – 300 points

7th – Dan Savage – 285 points
8th – Geoff Stoneback – 248 points

After an exciting start to the 2011 XDC season (click here for the round 1 recap) NonStopTuning is taking another road trip to Arizona for round 2 of the 2011 tour. XDC defending champ Chelsea DeNofa, AE86 maven Will Parsons, and Nevrslo Joshua Steele are gearing up for an exciting weekend in Arizona!
Let’s take a look back at how the 2010 AZ event (season finale) shaped up for NST:
The NST Sixth Anniversary Drift Competition & Car show is scheduled for March 6, 2011.

The inaugural Xtreme Drift Circuit’s six-round 2010 schedule came to an exciting end in Phoenix Arizona on October 16, 2010, and the season finale was a big success, to say the least. In its first season as the official national pro-am series for Formula Drift, the XDC has amassed a huge following in a realitively short period of time and has set itself apart from many of the series that have come and gone over the past few seasons.
The XDC is characterized by a mix of highly skilled pro and pro-am drivers, awesome road courses at large national venues, and a good number of enthusiastic spectators who recognize and cheer for their favorite drivers at each event.
NonStopTuning was proud to campaign the largest team in XDC this season. With the four cars of Chelsea DeNofa (BMW M3,) Aaron Losey (LS1 S13,) Will Parsons (4AG AE86,) and Joshua Steele (SR20 S13,) NST made consistent Top16 showings at each event. Consistently qualifying in the top half of the field, entering with some of the highest speeds at each track, and picking up Insane Entry awards, the NST drivers were a force to be reckoned with throughout the season.
The season came to a glorious close for NST, as Chelsea DeNofa clinched the series title with a podium finish in Phoenix, and was crowned the first ever XDC series KING! This was no easy task as the likes of FD and D1 liscenced drivers such as Doug Van Den Brink, Forest Wang, Cyrus Martines, Jeff Jones, and many more would have to be battled with throughout the season. DeNofa was consistently on top of his game and earned his spot at the top as a result of much hard work and dedication.
NST was one of very few teams to follow the national tour from start to finish, the only team with multiple drivers reaching the Top 16 tandem rounds at every event, and the only team to campaign with multiple chassis in the series.
“I had an awesome time traveling and driving in the XDC this year,” said DeNofa afterwards. “With the gnarly road courses, drivers that bring the heat, and great fan attendance, XDC was the place to be. I’d like to thank Secret Services Auto, Technica Motorsports, Nexen Tires, NonStopTuning, BC Racing, Sideways Vinyl, and S-Max Intercoolers for their support this season. I also have to send big props to my girlfriend Kaitie, my crew Sticks, Ethan, my mom, and the whole NST Team! Look out for us next year for sure!”
From all of us at NST, we would like to extend a huge thanks to the XDC for making this a very exciting season, and many thanks to our great friends and fans for their help and support throughout the year. Stay tuned everyone!
