Formula DRIFT returns to WWTR in 2022; Event moves from August to July 15-16

November 3, 2021, St. Louis – World Wide Technology Raceway – the home of NASCAR, INDYCAR and NHRA in the St. Louis-Metro East region – again will host the exciting Formula DRIFT Series in 2022. The event will move from its traditional August date to July 15-16 next year.

“We are happy to have Formula DRIFT return to WWTR on this new date for the 2022 season,” said Chris Blair, WWTR’s Executive Vice President and General Manager.

“This provides a great balance to our major event schedule with the NASCAR Cup and Camping World Series in June, Formula DRIFT in July, the NTT INDYCAR SERIES Bommarito Automotive Group 500 in August and the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series Midwest Nationals in late September.

‘We still have more important event announcements to come that will make 2022 our most exciting year in the history of WWTR.”

“The 2021 season was one of the most successful years in Formula DRIFT history,” said Ryan Sage, Formula DRIFT President. “Coming off 2020, which was challenging for everybody, we’re extremely grateful for the strength of support shown by the FD community – illustrating, once again, why Formula DRIFT is one of the fastest growing motorsports series in the world.”
