[Editor’s Note – You remember the gent calling himself the Drift Idiot? His name is Sam Nalven and he’s on a mission to chronicle the current Formula Drift season, and his goal isn’t simply to cover the event but instead to dive a bit deeper. Here then is the second in a series of videos Sam is working on, and the it’s title titled The Drift Chronicles. Enjoy! –KK]

There’s strength in a name. Even if you are named after a possum. Jarod DeAnda, the voice of Formula Drift has given nicknames to many of the FD drivers over the years. Some drivers love it, some hate it, and some just have too many spring break appointments to care.

In this episode of The Drift Chronicles, I explore the root of some of Formula Drift’s more interesting nicknames during FD Round 2 in Atlanta, home of the rowdiest fans and scandal-inducing weather.

Make the jump for the video and enjoy!
