Evergreen Drift includes both the 3/8ths and 5/8ths paved banks on the track layout. The Formula DRIFT layout is one of the fastest oval course on the circuit. On the 5/8ths bank, drivers hit speeds north of 90mph. Off the 5/8ths, the layout continues infield into a hard breaking zone. The transition is a left hand turn to a sharp low speed hairpin turn.
