It’s only fitting that Vaughn Gittin Jr. chalked up his first Formula Drift win of the season at the track where the series began back in 2003—Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia. In fact, he definitely took a liking to the Southern (tire) cooking as he qualified in the top spot and picked off competitors through the 32-car field to eventually take the win over 2011 champion Dai Yoshihara in the finals.

It would appear that Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s 2016 Mustang RTR has really hit its stride in Formula Drift competition. Look at how the suspension and the Nitto Tires are gripping the Hotlanta surface as the Professional Funhaver navigated the course.

After climbing to the top of the qualifying ladder with a score of 91, Vaughn entered the top 32 with clashes against Geoff Stoneback, Tyler McQuarrie, and his pal Chris Forsberg. He dispatched each challenger before facing off with Dai in the finals. Vaughn was having that kind of weekend, as he again prevailed with a victory awarded unanimously by all three judges.
