Video: Mike Ryan shows how to drift in a Semi Truck

Drifting a Semi Truck

Ever wonder what it’s like drifting something bigger than your sports coupe? Pro racer and stunt driver, Mike Ryan, was recently invited out to round 6 of the Formula Drift Championship to demo his famous Freightliner Cascadia Pikes Peak Edition race truck.

In his first public demonstration of a Semi Truck drifting at an official drift event, Ryan teams up with Sam Hubinette, who is seen burning the tires off of his Dodge Challenger.

The video also follows the story of a kid named William Klopper who is battling cancer and goes for a ride in the big truck with Ryan. Hubinette was granting a wish to William’s friend Patrick by inviting them out to the track for the ride.

Check out the video after the jump.
