Hey there! My name is Matt Haugen aka Haugen Racing. I’m from Scottsdale, Arizona and was born in St. Paul, Minnesota. We are a professional drift team, SEMA car builders, and content creators. We love drifting, comedy, offroading, building cars, video games and making videos! Our youtube channel is our largest focus right now, where we upload 5 times a week. We also have an online shop, Haugenracing.com where we create automotive and japanese inspired streetwear and accessories.
We always strive to find that perfect blend of style and functionality through the use of our vivid Yellow, Red, and Blue colors and taking inspiration from all corners of the custom car culture.
Cars have been in my blood since the day I was born. At age 16, my 2008 Toyota Tundra was my first SEMA Show car. Since then we’ve had over 7 vehicles in the SEMA show from our 1 of 1 Liberty Walk Lamborghini Murcielago to our 1JZ swapped Rocket Bunny 350z, dubbed the 351JZ. I fell in love with drifting and have been pursuing that professionally since 2017. We first competed in ProAm with our Hyundai Genesis Coupe powered by a CBM 4.0L Whipple Supercharged 425ci LS3.
Besides drifting, racing and building show cars, I am a big supporter of education. I recently acquired my Master of Science in Entrepreneurship and Innovation from the University of Southern California.
