Formula Drift driver Dean Kearney smashed his Viper on Media Day

Is this video Fail? Rank it.

The 2014 Formula Drift season is nearly upon us. The off-season has been fun and all, especially that epic missile car build, but we're ready to get back to the real deal. Media day for the new season took place on Tuesday, and it was an awesome opportunity for the 2014 Formula D drivers to show off their new liveries. It wasn't all shits and giggles, though. Ryan Tuerck was rear-ended by Odi Bakchis and dinged up his car pretty good. Thankfully, Tuerck's car is good as new and ready for Friday's qualification.

Formula Drift driver Dean Kearney also wrecked on Turn 10 at Long Beach. Kearney's team is working hard trying to repair his Viper in time for Friday's qualification. Let's hope he's able to pull it off because no one wants to start off a season by not starting.

Do you think Dean Kearney's Viper will be ready for Friday? Tell us in the Comments.

Is this video Nice? Rank it.

It seems that his missile building offseason prepped him for Formula D quite well. Take a ride during the practice rounds with the Long Beach champ in his Nissan 370Z. The Atlanta event kicks off May 9, so stay tuned for more from this year's Formula Drift.

This big rig drifting in a Gymkhana-style video will make your day

Is this video WTF? Rank it.

Drifting videos are awesome. Drifting videos with a minivan, or where there's kids in the front seat, or where a friend's car gets stolen are awesomer. But semi trucks drifting just might be the awesomest videos. Mike Ryan is perhaps the gnarliest big rig drifter (admittedly, it's not a very crowded field). He has taken things to a whole new level with his "Size Matters" series of Gymkhana-style videos.

Ryan just dropped "Size Matters 2" featuring his Banks Super-Turbo Castrol Feightliner drifting and following Daniel Leavitt on the docks of Long Beach Harbor. It's insane that Ryan can even drift this thing, let alone drift it in the narrow spaces of the harbor docks. Then he has a guy hold on and skitch behind the truck. And then he jumps the semi over a bunch of Smart Cars? Seriously?! Better watch your back Ken Block.

What do you think of Size Matters 2? Tell us in the Comments.

Check out the first Drift Chronicles from this year's Formula Drift season

Is this video FTW? Rank it.

In case you've been living under a rock, the 2014 Formula Drift season began with a bang. Our very own Chris Forsberg took the victory and started his campaign for a Formula Drift title strong. As we hear on this season's first edition of The Drift Chronicles though, Michael Essa (the 2013 Formula Drift champion) is standing in Forsberg's way. We get some in-depth information on the rivalry that has slowly been brewing between the two drivers and it'll be very intriguing to see how this year unfolds.

We also hear from the infamous wall on Turn 10 at the Long Beach track that takes out so many cars. And finally another rivalry that's been brewing on the Formula Drift circuit: who drives the Mustang better? Would that be Vaughn Gittin Jr. or Justin Pawlak? So many questions to be answered by this year's Formula Drift season, we'll just have to wait till Atlanta rolls around next on May 9.

Who do you think will take the Atlanta event? Tell us in the Comments.
