Nate Hamilton's desire for progression and speed in extreme sports began at an early age, at 6 years old he was experimenting with the limits of a PW50 dirt bike in his neighborhood. Late into high school education, Nate was dying for more personal challenge, something he found in skating, as he looked up to DC athletes like Rob Dyrdek and Josh Kalis. In 2008, a close friend introduced the idea of a RWD powered car doing an action called drifting. It was this constant push for the next challenge that convinced Nate to purchase his first drift car, a 1993 RX-7. Nate sold his car for a more cost effective 1989 Nissan S13 by the advice of friends, who thought the classic drift car, would give him more longevity. His first ProAm drift event, XDC 2010 in Las Vegas, NV, Nate did not place in his first event. Though it was a win for the young drifter either way, believing he had won the desire of competing at such high stakes. Something clicked for Nate and he came home to Dallas with a dream to become a professional Drifter. Mid-2010, Nate started his own team, ONE44 Motorsports. He looked up to international heavy hitters like Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Chris Forsberg, so he started to gain inspiration from their well-prepared race programs. His first full season in 2011, Nate took the podium in most of the events he had competed in; he was also running three ProAm series at the same time. By 2012, Nate stepped up his programs ProAm commitment as he had a new desire: to compete professionally in Formula DRIFT, a multi-national Championship series. Nate earned his FD license not in one ProAm series, but two. 2013 has been a whirlwind year of growth for Nate Hamilton and his company, ONE44 Motorsports. After a long off-season building a new Competition car, Nate was one of the only Rookie competitors to make it to every round, while also being one of the most qualifying Rookies this season. He looks forward to a long commitment in his career with Formula D. Nate Hamilton has finally found the perfect combination in this national series which hosts a challenge, progression, and athleticism Nate has been searching for his whole life.
