The price of having fun doesn’t have to be expensive. Well we are talking about drifting so in this case its always going to be kinda expensive anyway you look at it. Unless you’re a spectator, then it’s only 5 bucks to come out and watch at the monthly Clarksville Grassroots Drift. These events are a true, have fun, laid back drift day that offers drivers plenty of seat time. 2019 makes this the 5th year for these folks and they aim to keep it fun and simple, as they will be hosting these drift events monthly this year located just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Sunday March 10th was the first event for 2019 and they had 45 cars and around 100 spectators. They even have a 2 day event setup for May 25th & 26th we will share more details on this event soon. This group really tries hard to make fun and affordable events. We spoke to Ashley Hicks who helps with the events and is part of MisFit Toys Racing who puts on the Clarksville Grassroots Drift events, here is what she had to say.
Do you guys have food and drinks available at the events?
Yes we have concessions available at every event. Selling hamburgers, pizza, wings. Fountain drinks, hot chocolate (when it’s cold out) and even beer.
What do you contribute the Growth of the event over the last few years?
honestly I’d say we owe it to our loyal drivers and our local guys that really help spread the word. We have a lot of drivers that go to competition events and they spread the word at those events too. We are really like a “small town” event. Everybody knows everybody and we embrace new people like friends.
How much does it cost to drive at your events?
$40 to drive, $20 to ride and $5 to spectate! We are a much cheaper event compared to those around us and we’re an excellent practice track for people wanting to eventually get into competition drifting. We are affordable seat time.
