"All Or Nothing" was the name of the game at Wall Raceway, NJ based on how the drivers performed during the Formula D madness. This was one of the closest competitions in FD history, with Tanner Foust and Chris Forsberg coming into the competition having only a 3-point difference (Foust leading with 415 to Forsberg’s 412). The talk of the town though was most certainly the JIC Magic/Hankook Tires Porsche driven by Tyler McQuarrie – it definitely stood out amongst the sea of Nissans and quickly became a fan favorite.
Qualifying went smoothly until Ken Gushi smashed his Mustang into the barrier during a high-speed drift into the longest banked curve on the track. Unfortunately Ken wasn't coming back – serious damage forced his Mustang into early retirement. Close competition in all rounds forced many “one more times” and just as Tyler and the Porsche were creating a nice buzz, his car suffered mechanical failure and forced him to bow out. Tanner Foust thus moved on as the victor, capturing third place and netting 85 points for this round. The final round was an extremely tight matchup between Rhys Millen and Daijiro Yoshihara. Both runs were almost too close to call, but even with the crowd in a frenzy and Millen gnawing on Yoshihara's tail, Dai managed to edge him out and earned a well deserved victory netting him 105 points and podium in the semifinal matchup of the series. With only Irwindale remaining it will no doubt be a tight battle for points supremacy in the final round. We can’t wait for October 13th – and in the meantime stay tuned to Modified Mag for a further breakdown of the action at Wall Speedway!
