Here is an incomplete list of teams and clubs of buddies drifting in the United States. Their names are truly fantastic.

Most of these teams have popped up in the past couple years, since Final Bout started up as a team versus team competition touring across the country. Others are older. The idea is pretty straightforward, with a group of kids building similar style cars in similar looks. Pretty much all are completely amateur, though others have professional or ex-pro drivers. These are in no particular order, but generally the trend is from more to less active teams.

If you want to know more about any of these teams, just search them on Instagram, they all live there.
