Kenshiro Gushi (also known as Ken Gushi) is originally from Japan and began his professional career at the age of 16 (despite not having passed his driving test at the time). Ken was the youngest most successful competitor in both the D1 Grand Prix of Japan and the Formula Drift PRO Championships. Ken’s pro career took off in 2004 when Formula D had made its way to Road Atlanta for the event that would be the start of what was to become the world’s biggest professional drifting series. A few weeks after Road Atlanta, Ken won the $10,000.00 Winner-Take All International Drifting Shoot-Out at the Road & Track U.S. Sports Car Invitational (30 April 2004 - 2 May 2004) at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Fast forward 15 years, Ken is now a factory works driver for Toyota Racing and Achilles Tire USA.

Career highlights include multiple top-3 Series finishes in the Formula Drift Pro Championship, Exhibition-class win at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, and Toyota LBPCR Pro-Class win. Ken is a current member of the SAG union, performing on-screen stunt work for multiple automotive manufacturers.
