Josh McGuire and the NonStopTuning Sparky’s Speed Shop Nissan S14 wrapped up a very successful season on August 16/17, winning the 2014 Lone Star Drift championship.  The 2014 series title comes as the third ProAM championship in the last four seasons for NonStopTuning, with Chelsea DeNofa and Will Parsons winning as NST drivers in 2011 and 2012, respectively.

McGuire and his team were very well prepared all season and finished on the podium at every event, minus the final event (Round Six)  where the car suffered mechanical failure and McGuire was unable to qualify.

Round One:  1st Place
Round Two:  1st Place
Round Three:  2nd Place
Round Four:  2nd Place
Round Five:  2nd Place
Round Six:  DNQ

Even with the unfortunate DNQ at the final round, McGuire and his team had built enough of a points cushion to remain at the top of the season standings, although Dewayne Ramsey was able to close the gap and finish only three points behind, for the season title.

McGuire was one of few ProAM drivers this season to compete in multiple series, Lone Star Drift (Texas) and Vegas ProAM (Nevada) and plans to use his newly acquired Formula Drift license to drive in the FD Pro2 series in 2015.

From the NonStopTuning website: 

The NonStopTuning Nissan 370Z (G37VQ37HR Pulley Kit (NST13710K) increases horsepower via great weight reduction and the underdriving of accessories. Superior to other available kits, NST kits also offer an Overdrive Alternator Pulley to optimize output for stereo system lovers.

The NST Pulley kit drives the alternator at OEM speeds, no slower, no faster. As a result, there is no need to worry about dimming lights, weak batteries, or weak alternator output.

The NST Nissan 370Z VQ37HR Pulley Kit is also compatible with the Infiniti G37 and the Nissan 350Z HR.

Taka Aono has more experience with the AE86 chassis than any other drifter in the USA, and is the only ten year FD veteran to campaign with the same chassis during the existence of the series.  Joining the team for the 2014 season, Aono brings with him an incredible amount of professional experience and knowledge, with a very long and successful resume in drifting, road racing, and instructional driving.
