2012 Formula D Round 1 - Web Exclusive

Apr 9, 2012

The Formula DRIFT 2012 Season Opener Round 1 at Streets of Long Beach started off a huge success with advanced tickets sales entirely sold out. Fans finally got to witness Ken Gushi's highly anticipated Scion FR-S in action. In the end, Team Falken took both first and second with Justin "JTP" Pawlak picking up his second win in a row at this venue in his Falken Tire 2013 Ford Mustang and Dai Yoshihara placing second in his Discount Tire/Falken Tire S13 240SX. Third place went to Daigo Saito in his Achilles Tire/Bridges Racing 1,200HP 2JZ-powered Lexus SC430.

For a more in-depth look at all the action from Round 1, check out the upcoming Import Tuner on newsstands.
