Originating from South Florida, Kevin Phillips started his motorsports journey in 2007, at the age of 19. Having grown up blue collar, the cost of drifting made a career in the sport a far-fetched dream, despite his driving talent. Kevin then dedicated himself to making that dream a reality. Drifting in Miami is where he began 9 years ago, progressing into competitive drifting for the last 5 years.During that time, Kevin Phillips was fortunate enough to receive mentoring from former FD Pro Jeff Abbott. Abbott was able to provide Kevin with a better understanding of what it will take to achieve his professional drifting goals. For multiple FD seasons, Kevin was also given the opportunity to work beside 2013 Formula Drift Champion Michael Essa, who was kind enough to show him the ins and outs of the industry. While continuously developing his skillset and knowledge, Kevin’s progress in drifting has been, and will continue to grow. Obtaining his Pro2 license for the 2017 Formula Drift season has further fueled Kevin’s determination. Phillips’ adaptability, desire, and raw talent, will prove this 2017 FD season to be both exciting and successful. Spectators and judges alike will thoroughly enjoy watching Kevin’s close proximity to competitors during tandems, as well as his throttle commitment while sliding against the wall. Kevin Phillips will be running his rookie FD Pro2 season in a LS powered Nissan 240sx S14.
