The culmination of the 2008 drift season in the US brought a little bit of everything. On the “as to be expected” front, we saw Tanner Foust secure the series championship with a podium finish and a hard fought battle right down to the end. On the “WTF” front a podium finish from Justin Pawlak surprised just about everyone, and we were glad to see a much-deserved top 3 finish from JTP at Irwindale. As for the “O RLY” front, well, our friends at Everythingdrift.com just so happened to inform us that the winner of the Irwindale finale, Vaughn Gitten Jr., had actually never won a Formula D event at Irwindale! Those savvy to the drift scene will recall that his prior victories at the House of Drift were all D1GP events.

Congratulations to Vaughn Gittin Jr., JTP, Tanner Foust, and the rest of the Formula D competitors for making each and every event this season memorable. We can’t wait for the FD World Championships in November – hope to see you there!
