Torrance, Calif., Jan. 11, 2016 – Baker Skateboards, under its partnership with Scion, hit the road in a brand new iM and iA for a demo at their favorite park in San Francisco. They stopped along the way not only to shred a few local spots, but to ride along with professional drift racer Ken Gushi in a Scion FR-S release series 1.0.

Scion x Baker Skateboards: Skateparks and Drifting ft. Andrew Reynolds

The Baker skate team recently took a road trip with a Scion iA and a Scion iM as part of the Scion x Baker Skateboards project. The journey started off at the Buttonwillow Raceway in Buttonwillow, California, where they met up with professional race car driver Ken Gushi. The crew showed what type of speed they could get on the vast expanses of asphalt, with or without an engine. Then they brought out the ramp so Baker boss Andrew Reynolds could go big over the bright yellow Scion TRD FR-S Project Car.
