Formula Drift Driver Chris Forsberg Drives a NASCAR Race Car on the Street
Professional fun-haver Chris Forsberg ditches the drift car to drive a NASCAR race car on public roads.
Last month, The Drive broke the news that Formula Drift driver Chris Forsberg was starting a vlog series with his friend and mechanic on his Formula Drift team Dylan Hughes called Good Enough! When you start watching any show or series, you don't really know what to expect, but I promise you that whatever you expected, a Formula Drift driver driving a NASCAR race car on the street was not it.
Forsberg and Hughes have put out 17 episodes of their Good Enough! series. Most of the episodes feature pre-season preparation and fabrication of Forsberg's Nissan 370Z Formula Drift drift car, some of which we have covered such as when the duo fabricated a triple pass radiator out of a standard single pass radiator. This episode was purely for their enjoyment.
The video starts with Forsberg helping unload a Toyota Camry NASCAR race car. The crew unloading the car doesn't appear to know much of its history of where it raced, but they believe it to be driver Eric Holmes' previous car, but who cares about history—it's packed with 800 horsepower of fun. You get looks at the interior and the engine bay featuring a raucous V-8 engine and then they start the beast.
You are then cut to Hughes who catches Forsberg in the driver seat and he is itching to take it for a spin—who can blame him? Forsberg takes the NASCAR race car for a spin through the parking lot eventually popping out to the street.
