Branden Sorensen was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada with a family of motorsports enthusiasts. Driving since the young age of 5 years old, he was raised with a steering wheel in his hand. Branden has experience in many different racing disciplines including karting, UTVs, Off-Road Trophy Trucks, and more. Branden began to focus on drifting at only 12 years old, competing in local grass roots drift events.
He earned his Formula Drift license by winning the U.S. Drift Championship at the young age of 14, the youngest in Formula Drift history. Branden enjoys taking part in engineering and building his race cars. He has worked in the garage from a young age alongside his father, who is a 20 year off-road racing veteran. Branden and his team have designed their own suspension, body kits, and constructed the car entirely in the Sorensen Motorsports Garage.
The 2023 season is Branden’s third year as a Pro driver. He continues to improve his ranking with each season.
The Enkei Triumph
Branden Sorensen runs the all new Enkei Triumph Tuning Series wheels on his Air Force Fromula Drift BMW. Sorensen is running an 18×8.5 +38 in the front and 18×9.5 +38 in the rear.
The all-new Triumph is a ten-spoke lightweight wheel made using our MAT process, the same MAT process used to make the Enkei RPF1. Using our MAT Technology process creates a lightweight wheel while drastically improving the material property and strength of the wheel. The ten sleek spokes give the Triumph a sporty lightweight profile that is commonplace on race tracks across the globe. The Triumph is an ideal option for modern sports coupes and sedans like the Toyota 86 and BRZ, the Civic Type R (FK), Subaru WRX, IS250/300, Nissan Z34, and many others. It’s available in 17 or 18 inch with widths up to 9.5 and available in Gloss Black, Matte Bronze, or Storm Gray finishes.
