Do you know what is harder than drifting?  Drifting in the freakin rain!  While typically a crowd pleasing occurrence, drifting in the rain without spinning out is extremely difficult.  Throw in the pressure of having judges watch your performance while competing for a championship and the difficulty is increased exponentially.  Yet, that is exactly what many drivers had to deal with over the weekend at Round 4 of Formula Drift in New Jersey at Wall Speedway.   It was definitely a battle of attrition but it was Fredric Aasbo who came out on top after defeating Dean Kearny in the final battle.  This is the second year in a row that Aasbo has earned victory in New Jersey.  Tuerck earned third place thanks to his 9th qualifying spot.  This podium definitely tightens up the points race, especially with defending champ Chris Forsberg bowing out early with a defeat to Odi Bakchis in the Top 16.  Below is your official Formula Drift New Jersey Podium and current top 5 pro championship points standings.
