Monster Energy Mustang Drifts Through Fire

Formula D's Vaughn Gittin Jr. won't stop short of sliding and jumping over a raging inferno for a cool video

As if there aren't enough videos of Formula D champ Vaughn Gittin Jr. pushing his car and driving skills to the limit, there's a new one to add to the list. Fire Drift features Gittin Jr.'s 2014 Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR squaring off against a nighttime landscape engulfed in flames.

"We just wanted to have some fun, do something different and push the limits to another level...I mean what could be more fun than explosions, fire balls, jumps, drifting and a Ford Mustang RTR screaming at over 7000 RPMs," commented Gittin Jr. on the video. "I definitely scared myself more than once during the shoot. But, hey! It was awesome and we sure had a blast!"
