Slide Squad with Mark Hutchinson and Dave Scholz

Play episode

Mark Hutchinson and Dave Scholz met in the late 90s and became America’s first drift team known as Slide Squad. In this episode, hear about their adventures both in Japan and the USA with infamous people like Nobushige Kumakubo, Hideo Hiraoka, and Hiroshi Takahashi. They recall the drama of the first Super Street article introducing us to drifting on American soil featuring their team. Mark and Dave preached that drifting should be fun and not serious from day one. Combine that with their love for 80s nostalgia, off-the-wall humor, deep passion for motorsports and their bravery to do things not done before, and you have Slide Squad.
