At the relatively cool (95 degrees at midnight) Las Vegas Motorspeedway Formula Drift was burning up tires left and right as a full field of drivers were battling for a round 5 win in sin city. However it was Team Falken Tire that burned more rubber than anyone by sending three drivers to the final four, then dominating the podium with Vaughn Gittin Jr. taking third place and Dai Yoshihara taking second place after having mechanical problems before his battle with Tyler McQuarrie who took the top spot overall. This is the second time that Falken has had a podium sweep and with their roster of talent I doubt it will be the last time.
They’re also enjoying championship battle success as only 22 points separate points leader Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Dai Yoshihara in the standings. With only two rounds left (Sonoma and Irwindale) it is hardly a done deal. Just because both drivers are on the same team, don’t expect them to go easy on each other!
