After becoming the youngest Formula Drift driver in history by winning the 2018 US drift championship at only 14 years old, Branden Sorensen has made it clear he has a big future ahead of him in the motorsports world. Earning his Formula Drift license 2 years before he could even drive on the streets, Branden has proven he has a special skill set behind the wheel and only plans for bigger and better things.
“I have been around racing my entire life. My family has raised me to be a top competitor in anything I do. From racing bmx at the age of 5 years old and going to the grand nationals, to winning multiple championships in kart racing and always being pushed to improve my skills.
At 10 years old I was traveling the country almost 35 weekends a year racing the Lucas Oil, WORCS, and Best In The Desert series. Competing in UTV’s, Modified Karts, and race trucks taught me to adapt and overcome different types of challenges.
Soon after I started drifting and instantly fell in love, I knew if I wanted to pursue this I would have to put in loads of work to come out on top. Luckily i have an amazing family and awesome partners who supplied me with the best products and pushed me to improve.
Working with people like them has helped me progress quickly, going from my first drift to competing in formula drift in only 2 years.”
Branden has shown that his driving skills and maturity are well past his years, Helping to cad design and engineer his own parts. On and off the track he strives to be better, always looking to improve and find new ways to the top.
