Two weeks ago, I was invited to drive down to Bellevue, Washington. This was so I could attend the Evergreen Drift awards party. The party was being held by the organizers at Evergreen Speedway and Formula D, it was hosted by 425 Motorsports.
There were a lot of variables in the shop that instantly caught my eye, from the friendly staff to the layout of the store. It was unlike any auto shop that I had ever been to before. There was a wide range of competition racing seats that were all mounted so that customers could sit in each one. Racing suits, shoes, gloves and helmets were all arranged in a very organized manner, they really set the bar for what the ideal auto shop should look like.
This arrangement definitely made the store vibe feel very welcoming, and I only wanted to know more about its owner and what kept business booming. I was lucky enough to talk to the CEO of 425, Dan Reiss, and he was more than happy to inform me of what 425 is all about. With increasing popularity of drifting in the Pacific Northwest, 425 exceeds at selling top brand quality safety gear for drivers in this region. They also supply safety products to other genres of racing like karting, road racing and circle track. If you are ever in need of safety gear make sure you check out 425 Motorsports! www.425motorsports.com
