Ever since I started filming Formula Drift races, my mother, Amy Werman from our Worst Car Stories series, always joked about getting a ride-along with a professional drift racer. Here’s what happened when I got her one.

Veterans like Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg have both competed numerous times at Wall Stadium Speedway, so I thought it might be more exciting (and scary) to throw her in the car with Alec Hohnadell—the youngest driver in the Formula Drift series. Don’t be fooled by his age, he knows what he’s doing.

Judging by her reactions, I think she’s willing to go again soon.
