Brian started out in 2005 in a stock s13 which he built up over time. His first competition was in 2006 and he finished 3rd. In 2007, Brian ended up 2nd overall in the Midwest Cup Series, earning him a spot at the Pro-Am Nationals in Laughlin, NV. Brian crashed into the wall during practice and still managed to finish 2nd, earning him a 2008 Formula Drift License. The car was too damaged to repair so he built an s14 for the 2008 Formula Drift season. Brian built this car in 3 months during the winter at night after work and is currently the only driver from the Midwest to compete in every round of an entire season of Formula Drift. In 2009 he got 1st place at the first round of the Midwest Cup Series in St. Louis and 1st place at the Formula Drift Pro-Am competition at Road Atlanta. On the way home from Road Atlanta he made the decision to sell his S14 in order to fund a larger build. Brian spent the majority of 2010 in his garage building his new car, an LS6 FC RX-7. In 2011 he finished 1st in the Midwest Drift Union and 4th place overall in the XDC circuit. In 2012, he again took the year off to do his biggest build yet, which is his current setup - a built 2JZ in his FC RX-7. In 2013, he again took on competing in the Midwest Drift Union series, where he lead in points until the final event when a transmission issue ended his day, causing him to fall to 4th place overall for the series. Brian spent a majority of the 2013 season finding the "weak" points of his setup, as he was plagued with broken parts at every competition that year due to his high horsepower. Over the 2013-2014 winter, he dedicated himself to strengthening everything he could on the car so he could come out swinging for 2014.
