Status Racing Teams Up with Officer Dan and the HPPD

We are proud to announce our partnership with the infamous Officer Dan of the HPPD. If you’re never heard of Officer Dan, then we’re going to assume you don’t spend that much time on YouTube. The first “Drift Battle” Video was released by Icon Motorsports in 2011. It was a sexy 93 Rx7 pushing out 375 horsepower, racing a 05 Kawasaki ZX-10 with 175 hp and an extended swingarm. It was an awesome video with tons of tire shredding and sideways slow-mo’s. It racked up a couple million views within the first couple months of being out. After the success of Drift Battle 1, they decided to recreate the epic battle, but with more of a story line. Enter, Officer Dan.

Officer Dan, of the High Plains Police Department, played by Dan Brockett has one goal in life, to catch two rowdy motorcyclists played by Ernie Vigil and Nick “APEX” Brocha. Officer Dan is equipped with more than your average PD vehicle. This 550 horsepower Ford Mustang Cobra was made to chase down the baddest drift cyclists around. The Drift 2 video takes place on windy road where you get some awesome shots of the chase ensuing (see below). This is where Officer Dan really made a name for himself. He was brought on for Drift 3 and now the Drift 4 video.

Although he loves the law, he also has a passion for drift, which is why he’s decided to pursue a career in Formula D and we are lucky enough to supply him with some bad ass custom seats! We are excited to welcome Dan Brockett, and his team, to the Status family. Keep an eye out for what he does in Long Beach on April 4-5. If you want to keep up with him and all his crazy escapades, check out his site here. We will be posting updates and behind the scenes info about the upcoming Drift 4 video, so stay tuned!

Here is Drift 2 and 3 with some other pictures of Officer Dan on, and off duty.

Our Superstar Subie is at it Again

It is the end of the year and as most people do they think back on the year and what they’ve accomplished. Then look forward to the new year and start to plot how they are going to take over the world in 2014…. At least that’s what we do… Cruising on Instagram we were tagged in a picture by a Subaru we sponsored and the caption was,

“The year is almost over, and I just wanted to thank all the people who have helped me over the years. Friends, family, and sponsors, I thank you!”

It wasn’t long, it probably didn’t take much time, and yet made such an impression on us. Some sponsorship’s in the past, have gone somewhat awry. We, like most people, appreciate when people take time to give a shout out. It shows that not only did we help an awesome build, but an awesome person come that much closer to reaching their goal. Enough of our holiday sapp. Here are more recent stellar photos of this Superstar Subaru.

If we’ve sponsored you in the past, send us an update and pictures of your seats. You can them to email marketing@statusracing.com.
