NOPI Motorsports is taking the straight and sideways line together by combining its drag racing series with drift action. While the NOPI drift announcement was made last fall at SEMA, the reality starts this weekend with drift qualifying at the Texas Motorplex in Dallas. The Motorplex will host qualifying for the NOPI Professional Drift Series, and first round of 2007 NOPI Drag Racing Association mayhem. The very first combined NOPI Drift and Drag event is scheduled for March 17th and 18th at Firebird Raceway in Phoenix, Arizona. This weekend's drift qualifying will be hosted by Drift Fury. All NOPI drag racing, drifting, burnout contests, and bikini clad NOPI representatives will soon be on SPEED Channel and iTunes for viewing amusement.
