Robbie Nishida is a driver's driver because of his hard-charging, leave it all on the track style. A car guy since birth, Robbie's introduction to the sport happened by accident when he ran into cars drifting in the mountains of Japan. From that moment on he was hooked, and began building his first drift car a super old school MZ10 Toyota Soarer. He received his pro license in the US in 2005 and hasn't looked back. Robbie competes in Formula Drift USA, Formula Drift Asia, and D1 Grand Prix. Robbie achieved his highest finish in Formula Drift Asia with 4th place in 2012, and was awarded the Most Improved Driver in Formula Drift USA. Expect big things from Robbie Nishida this season because for Robbie drifting isn't just a sport, it is a lifestyle.
