Patrick started drifting in 2007 with some of his good friends at local events. Patrick started competing in small events in 2008 and 2009. 2010 was Patrick's first year of Pro-Am competition and he placed 2nd overall in the Street Wise Drift Pro-Am series. Patrick attended the 2010 Formula Drift Pro-Am Nationals at Round 7 of Formula Drift. In top 16 practice, Patrick wrecked the car on the inside wall. His awesome team and friends helped him get the car back out for competition. Patrick was not able to advance against John Russakoff and that ended his 2010 season.
