Drifting at Dover International: Baggsy shreds at NASCAR 2017

Oct 042017

If you thought a pack of 40 V8 powered NASCARs going wheel to wheel at 200mp/h couldn’t get more jaw dropping, then think again. Last weekend saw the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series touch down at the Dover International Speedway, in Delaware, for the Apache Warrior 400.

To crank up the noise even further, Monster Energy sent out Steve Baggsy Biagioni with a single mission; slay tyres in his 1400bhp #LSXR35 Nissan GT-R, as seen in BattleDrift 2.

Joining forces with US-based Monster Energy athletes; off-road Baja racer Casey Currie, FMXs heavy-hitters Jeremy ‘Twitch’ Stenberg, and Keith Sayers, as well as BMX legend Scotty Cranmer and stunt riders from Unknown Industries, the M-Claw was in full effect.

Smoke, noise, tyre slaying and high octane jumps got the 100,000 strong crowds ready for the epic on-track action that NASCAR fans come to expect.

I don't even know where to start. The first trip to America was amazing,” explained Baggsy “NASCAR is one of the craziest experiences I have had in motorsport. The atmosphere, noise, speed and fans are like nowhere else in the world. It was incredible to join the other Monster Energy athletes for the Smoke Show.


“The #LSXR35 went down a storm with the fans. And even though everything in America has a V8, lifting the bonnet to reveal the LSX and massive Garrett turbo left peoples jaws dropping. Having 'The Unknown' doing wheelies around me and Keith Sayers doing backflips on a motocross bike over me whilst drifting was insane. I can’t wait to get back out to America for more! A big thank you to Monster Energy and all my other sponsors for making this possible, it really is a dream come true!”


If you didn’t catch the show in Delaware, then don’t sweat it. The #LSXR35 and Baggsy are currently Vegas bound, to lay down more horsepower filled demos at the Monster Energy cup on October 14th.
