Motorsport can be a cruel mistress, and participants always want to be the apple of her eye. This can't be truer than the intense rivalry between two Drift Outlaws members: Tommie Beirowski and Yaseen Damon.

Earlier this year, Drift Outlaws staged the Bragging Rights event where drifters put their skill on display, as well as going up against revered rivals. One such battle was between Beirowski and Damon, where the on-track heat boiled over to the point where crews and family got involved with what happened.

On the Drift Outlaws rankings, Beirowski is currently rated as the second-best driver, followed by Damon in third place. When the two drivers went at it earlier this year, Beirowski drove into Damon, which caused significant damage to the latter's car. Damon could not take part in the remainder of the session, which meant the two drifters saw no change in their positions.

This outraged Damon a great deal, which prompted race master, Raziek Rajah, to put together an event in November where the drifters can settle the score. Beirowski even went as far as to tell Damon that he can choose the judges on the day but warns Damon that he will not take his win.

The two will go head-to-head on 28 November 2020 where this argument will be put to rest.
