Final Fight at 2010 Formula Drift Irwindale
FONTANA, CA -- After finishing second in the "Title Fight" at Toyota
Speedway at Irwindale, CA, Formula Drift's final event of the year, Team
Falken's Vaughn Gittin Jr., driver of the Monster Energy/Falken Tire 2011
Ford Mustang, became the
Formula D Champion of the 2010 season.
It was the 11th podium finish for Team Falken in seven Formula D races,
a season in which the tire company's factory-supported teams dominated all
year long. Falken placed first in five of the seven events.
Three Team Falken drivers were in the top five in the final standings.
Total points between the top five drivers were close, but Gittin Jr. was
clearly the favorite after taking two wins in the six races leading up to
the Title Fight. He finished the season with 632 points. Irwindale winner
Tanner Foust eventually finished second in the standings at 568.5, and Team
Falken Driver Daijiro Yoshihara ended up fourth overall, just one point
behind third place Ryan Tuerck. Team Falken Driver Darren McNamara took
"This was Jr.'s year plain and simple, said Jonathan Bradford, Falken's
Drift Team Supervisor. "There is a lot to be said about finishing on the
podium six out of seven events this year. It was a pleasure to be involved
with a team that left everything on the track and drove with an all-in
attitude. We have successfully rewritten the record books and I would like
to personally thank the fans that rooted for Falken throughout this
"Our team's success would not be possible without the support, hard work
and dedication of our two fabrication/engineering facilities, Autosport
Dynamics (ASD) in Charlotte, NC and SPD Metalworks in Anaheim, CA," added
Nick Fousekis, Senior Manager, Consumer Marketing. "I'd also like to thank
all of the sponsors, including our newest, Monster Energy, for their faith
in Falken's program. Last but certainly not least, we thank the fans of
drifting. Without you, the sport would not have grown into that it is
The Irwindale event started off well, as Falken's Darren McNamara qualified
first, followed by Yoshihara in third. Gittin Jr. was sixth. Both
McNamara and Gittin Jr. made it to the Top 4, but McNamara lost a chance to
take a podium when he spun out in the battle for third place.
"On behalf of everyone at Falken Tire, we wish to express our best wishes
to Vaughn," said Andrew Hoit, Falken Director of Marketing. "This was a
great season for Falken, and we entertained close to 500 guests over the
weekend at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale. I'd also like to salute the
efforts of our other team members: Dai Yoshihara; Darren McNamara; Tyler
McQuarrie [who finished 8th in the standings]; and Justin Pawlak [who
finished 11th]; as well as our privateers, all of whom, like the factory
teams, competed on Falken Azenis RT-615K tires: Fredric Aasbo [13th]; Ross
Petty [19th]; "Mad" Mike Whiddett [21st]; James Deane [24th]; and Dean
Kearney, who came from Ireland. Their participation successfully enhanced
our overall effort, and we'll all join the celebration."
Drifting takes competitive motorsports to the extreme, and has
successfully attracted strong crowds, loyal fans and car enthusiasts from
all walks of life. Falken quickly realized how popular and demanding this
format would become, and since 2003, has been a solid fixture within the
sport. The focus is on skill and precision driving, as competitors in
specially prepared, high-powered vehicles intentionally execute controlled
sideways slides at high speeds through a marked course.

all-new 2011 Porsche Carrera GTS, especially in Palm Springs, Cali! For
this special moment Porsche brought in Joerg Bergmeister -- 5-time American
LeMans Series' champion -- for the unveil and a test run in the Porsche

own 911 Carrera S and Flying Lizard 911 GT3 RSR. Thoughts?
Falken Wildpeak AT tire review
Review Of Falken Wildpeak AT tires at about 3000 miles.
Size 245/17/65 so far very happy with tires
I miss spoke in the video, noise starts at 40 mph and stop at around
I am hoping this maybe a balancing issue and it will go away next tire
rotation and balancing.
I will let you know. Over all I like the tires , they are smooth on the
road and quit for the most part.They are wearing pretty evenly so far.
Honda is not known for the sound damping ability read any review and you
will see. Provided the world does not end in the next few years we will up
size to a sequoia for our vacation SUV !!!
I would say lost about a mile per gallon after getting these tire on.
