Matt Field and his crew prepare to go to Long Beach, California for the first stop of the Formula Drift tour. As they're tuning their newly upgraded car, they realize that something isn't quite right. They work late into the night attempting to solve the issue, but finally have to leave to make it to the track in time for mandatory tech inspection. Matt and the team make it, but they are still struggling to solve the issue, until they finally realize that it's too late. Matt and the team must head back home to San Jose, California without any points at the first stop. Despite the disappointment, Matt knows that he has business at his shop (The Drift Cave) to attend to, and more opportunities to score points in the future.
