Quick Glance: Corey entered the world of pro-amateur drifting for the first time earlier this year and shocked the drift community as he quickly made his way to the podium. He earned three podium finishes out of only 5 events. Keep in mind Corey has never stepped foot into a drift car until April of this year. With his motorsports and precision driving background, Corey was able to adapt to any situation thrown in his path and overcome the odds. Combining his driving skill, personality, eagerness to learn and extensive media experience we feel Hosford has what it takes to propel himself to rookie of the year for the 2012 Formula Drift series.
