MB Drift was founded in 2005 when a few Myrtle Beach drifters were looking for a closer place to drift than Atlanta. MB Drift, previously known as Myrtle Beach Drift Series, hosted grassroots drift events and competitions at the Myrtle Beach Speedway from 2005-2020. At the end of 2020, the Myrtle Beach Speedway was rezoned to be sold to developers and torn down. MB Drift found a new home at the famous Rockingham Speedway in Rockingham, NC.
Drifting had never been to The Rock until December 2020 – when we hosted our first event. Rockingham is a former NASCAR track with a 1 mile oval track, infield road course, garages, and combo 1/2 mile 1/4 mile short track on the back side of the NASCAR oval. There are big plans in store for The Rock 2021!
GRASSROOTS DRIFT SERIES
Our competition series is designed to take entry level drifters and build their skills to the point where they can graduate from MB Drift and be competitive in Pro-Am and higher drift competitions. We have no power restrictions and minimal chassis restrictions, instead we equalize the field with a 225 rear tire width cap and through course design/layout.
Tickets for our events can be purchased on The Foat!

MB Drift wouldn’t be able to do what we do for our drivers without the support of amazing sponsors.
We’re so excited to have KENDA TIRES on board for our 2021 season. Kenda makes the legendary KR20A – what we believe to be the best tire for grassroots drifting. It checks all the boxes – forward bite, side bite, and extraordinary tire life. Winners in our competition this year will be awarded with tires or gift cards to go towards tires (if tires are unavailable in the desired sizes).
Ocean Isle Auto Repair is located in Ocean Isle, NC and is owned and operated by members of our local drift family, the Babbs. They attend all of our events and offer tire mounting services for $10/tire – you take your dead tires with you. They also sell tires and can get you the best pricing on the aforementioned KR20As at our events as well as dozens of different brands and models. Make sure to check them out on Facebook, shoot them a message, or give them a call at 910-579-6700! Mention MB Drift to get special tire pricing.
