As always, the finale for the 2013 Formula Drift Pro Championship ends at the "House of Drift," Irwindale Speedway. Local fan favorite, Ken Gushi and the GReddy Performance X Scion Racing Team performed flawlessly all weekend long...
Ken drove the Irwindale course with solid lines, angle and tire smoke during practice and qualifying. In Friday's Qualifying session One Ken scored a 82.5pts (with maximum speed points in the scored area,) placing him 13th position out of about 50 drivers.
Our first battle was in Top32 against the 20th seed, Denofa and his BMW. After some close door to door drifting, the judges awarded Gushi the win for his smoother, cleaner runs.
During the Formula D Half-time break, the GReddy booth/pit area was swamped with GReddy/Gushi fans all evening long.
An impromptu line of fans streached all the way around the GReddy Racing trailer... Thank you all for your support!
