Exciting news!

Posted in Checking In, News on 03/16/2010 by Ian

With the 2010 season underway, and obviously the drivers and the local events are bigger and better than ever, we’ve decided that we need to grow as well.

As nice as WordPress is, and how easy it is for us to post photos for all of you and have event info, we’re ready for a change.

Kenneth and I are in the process of putting together the ideas and design for a brand new MakeItRain website. This will be a full on new fresh start with many more options for not only us, but you the reader as well.

We will keep you updated with progress and junk, but big things are on the horizon!!!

– Ian.

Its almost that time again…

Well, get your shit together, because we have another event coming up on the 19th of this month! Evergreen Speedway is doing all they can to give us the most seat time this season, and three events a month isn’t that shabby.

Be sure your car is up to the standards, because we’re very adamant about tech, and we’re not afraid to turn you away if your car is unsafe to you, the track, or other drivers.

On another note, I’m working on Make It Rain v.3.0. Should be a nice layout when I’m done with it.

Sunny Days…

Posted in News on 04/07/2009 by Ian

Man, I can’t remember the last time Washington had four beautiful days in a row. Its really nice, its warm, everybody is getting burnt, driving around with all the windows down. I guess I’m writing this to let everybody know, get the hell out of the house, work on your car, barbeque, and chill with some damn friends.

Can’t get any better than this right now.

I expect to see a lot of people out at the next Evergreen event on April 19th!.

Keep it real.

What the fuck is up!

After a hiatus, Make It Rain is back, and boy does it feel good. I’m typing this with three event wrist bands on, needless to say, it was a busy weekend. Sleep deprivation, drifting, energy drinks, and too many cigarettes. The only way to live.

I’m working on a new design for the site, still not very happy with it. I’m also looking to get some more people on board to make sure you guys get your dose of Northwest drifting!

Just wanted to let everybody know that we’re not dead, and that Make It Rain is going to be kicking for a very long time.

Everybody have fun this season, I know I will.

Didn’t have much to post tonight, its hard to get interesting things since drifting isn’t happen for a few more months. I’m trying to find good things everyday, but its not always that easy. I know that once Golden Gardens rolls around (more on that later) and when the season picks up I’ll have more than enough content for you people to lick up.

Regardless, get the word out, tell your friends. We’re trying to get this shit to blow up!

Off Season Fun

Posted in News on 01/19/2009 by Ian


With the drift season over until Spring, you’ve got to get that pent up energy out. The guys over at have weekly meets that have grown to be pretty popular. Starting around 7:30pm, people show up to Dave’s Burgers in Lynwood, Washington to shoot the shit and get some cheap, amazing grub. After a while, everybody gets bored and hits up Traxx Indoor Racing in Mukilteo for some drift karting. Not a bad way to spend $22 if I do say so myself.

When: Every Wednesday, 7:30pm

Dave’s Burgers:
19509 44TH Ave W
Lynnwood, WA 98036-5619
Phone: (425) 672-1470

Traxx Indoor Racing
4329 Chennault Beach Road
Mukilteo, WA 98275
425-493-TRAX or 425-493-8729

Anyways, this is an invite for everybody to come hang out, and have some fun before the drift season starts back up again. If you have any questions, e-mail me.

Fail/New Track!

Posted in News on 01/18/2009 by Ian

Well, the photo shoot didn’t end up going down tonight due to some schedules not matching up, a bit disappointed, but what can you do. I’m hoping we can get the photo shoot rescheduled and show you guys some superb cars from the Northwest!

I thought I’d take some time out and show you guys a video of the new track in Oregon, Oregon Raceway Park. It looks like an extremely fun track, and we’re hoping that drifting hits that track in the near future. It looks really fast, which can only mean some gangster shit will be going down.

Here is an overhead photo of the track:

And here is some in car footage, nothing better than a brand new track:
