Name: SCOTT HARRIS
Who influenced you to develop the drift style you have?
I got my first S13 because of a close friend in Highschool Jon “Wayne” Yuen. He introduced me to the first drift family I ever had, Art and the Lazy Penguins; I instantly became hooked. EVERYONE in the Norcal drift scene put me on (y’all know who you are!) The only events we had at the time were weekly Night Drifts at the banked circle track at Altamont Raceway and Bob’s donuts events at Buttonwillow Raceway and Thunderhill on xmas and Thanksgiving! The best ones were the Word Up drift events as well, those events at Great America were the SHIT! Big ups to Mark Arcenal AKA Mark Fatlace for hosting!
When did you first get truly excited about drifting?
The first time I ever got excited about drifting was when I experienced my first turbo RWD swap.I swapped a KA-T into a shell I had. I did the swap in my garage with only the help of my friends and RIPPED it at Buttonwillow. That car is why I am forever associated with KA-T builds.
What cars influenced your car’s style?
Jay Pizarro’s s14 definitely inspired my current car. He had the CLEANEST black kouki S14 on VSKF in like... 2007?! Other dudes that inspired me are Pink Godzira in Socal, they’re the guys that made me want to have a drift team like Blvckmoon, a group of homies that built cars together and pushed each other to increase style in driving and always had the best aero out there.
Why did you choose to take the path through drifting that you did?
Risky Devil definitely forged the path. I remember when they blew up the internet with the Wasted Summer video. They set the tone when they transported their cars to to California for All Star Bash. We connected and hung out at Jack in the Box until 2 am and they drove from SF to Horse Thief Mile. After seeing their dedication, I knew I’d make it out to USAIR, who knew I’d make the trip twice? - PS: CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU GUYS!!!
