This past July, The Human Baton (THB) and partners, took Apple Valley Speedway by storm with an action packed day of drift! Once the caravan arrived and all parties settled into their stations, THB Managing Director, Stev Stephens, kicked off the day’s orientation and safety brief to the nearly 50 team members in attendance. This “July Drift” event was one of many THB grassroots events intended to bring together the various race disciplines and contributors involved across the THB Universe. These grassroots events also help to further refine the layout of future races, provide an opportunity for content creation, and of course, allow this renown group of entertainers to do what they do best… Entertain!
Renown drift professionals including Jeff Jones, Rome Charpentier, Kyle Mohan, Trent Beechum, and Adam Knapik warmed up as the film crew set up each scene. Stunts were performed, sharp corners were flawlessly drifted, drones buzzed by and hovered above in conjunction with camera professionals on the ground. While the activities of the day were almost too much fun to pause, everyone was excited to break for lunch prepared by Chef Corey of Klutch Kitchen. The sheer talent of everyone involved in the event coupled with Apple Valley Speedway hospitality made for an incredible day. After closing out the day’s events, Stev Stephens commented, “It was a great, first grassroots training day for several of the Baton Athletes and their Drift team counterparts – we couldn’t have asked for a better showing! We’re really looking forward to getting our ‘2020 Effect’ race series launched now.”
Stay tuned for more exciting THB events as they pop up around the globe! #EverySecondCounts
