Formula Drift TOP 32 - Ross Petty VS JTP at Long Beach
LONG BEACH, CA -- Team Falken started the 2012 Formula Drift season the way
it finished last year, with one of its factory drivers on top of the
podium. For the second year in a row, Justin Pawlak took first place at
the Long Beach opening round, making it a three-peat for Falken at Long
Beach, one of the tire brand's two home tracks. Formula Drift defending
champion and Team Falken teammate Daijiro ("Dai") Yoshihara was second.
2011 Falken Formula Drift Test
Coming off a dominating 2010 season in which Team Falken driver Vaughn
Gittin, Jr.¸ competing in the Monster Energy/Falken Tire 2011 Ford Mustang, became the Formula Drift
Champion, the high performance tire manufacturer will be gunning for a
repeat performance of last year. Falken's ultimate goal is to have one of
its five factory drivers again claiming the top rung of the Formula D
ladder, and each team member will have the horsepower to do it. All
drivers plan on fielding a new or improved vehicle with more power, which
the sport has demanded. The cars will be unveiled this weekend on the
streets of Long Beach for the opening event of the 2011 Formula Drift
Gittin, Jr., will be aboard a Ford Mustang 5.4-liter, its motor built by
Ford Racing and Huffaker Engineering, while Daijiro ("Dai") Yoshihara, who
placed fourth in the standings last year, returns in his re-engineered
Nissan 240SX (Silvia S13). Finishing fifth in 2010, Darren McNamara also
returns this year, running a new Saturn Sky built by Autosport Dynamics in
Charlotte, NC, losing the convertible for a hardtop which adds an
aggressive stance to the car.
Tyler McQuarrie also recognized the value of a fully enclosed coupe,
choosing a new hardtop Nissan 350Z, which allows for a significant change
in weight distribution, making the Z a far more competitive vehicle.
Finally, Justin Pawlak, returning for his second year with Falken, will
again field a Ford Mustang,
with an engine built by Ford Racing/Roush-Yates of NASCAR fame.
"Our team has worked hard to develop their new cars and we're pumped and
ready," declared Jonathan Bradford, Team Falken's Formula Drift manager.
All members of Team Falken will be using the company's Azenis RT615K, which
is DOT-approved and designed with the track competitor in mind. The RT615K
is a tire with maximum grip and concentrated contact patch, which increases
the driver's ability to fully exploit the capabilities of the engine,
brakes and suspension, precisely what each drift competitor needs.
Naturally, the RT615K performs equally well on the street during everyday
"Each year, Formula Drift gets bigger, with more participants and more
companies who want to be a part of this vital motorsports effort," stated
Nick Fousekis, Director of Motorsports and Consumer Marketing for Falken.
"We know what it takes to be competitive in this race series and we realize
all the other teams will be aiming for us, but we have every intention of
repeating our dominance, and continue running at the top. It's great to be
To kick off Falken's comprehensive Formula Drift marketing program, special
prizes will be given away at the team's display and activation area inside
the paddock. Additional promotional items will be handed out by Falken's
new group of Spokesmodels who will be in attendance throughout the two-day
event. Guests of Falken will also enjoy the company's highly anticipated
The full complement of Team Falken, including its five factory drivers,
along with Falken's display, hospitality rig and the company's factory
support, will travel to all seven rounds of the 2010 Formula D Pro

Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Nissan GT-R Street Race
Facebook http://on.fb.me/MvsGTR | Tweet! http://bit.ly/GTRvsM
READ: The other day in Mexico - Me and Amy lined up my Lamborghini
Murcielago (Full Larini Exhaust) vs.
the Nissan GT-R Premium (Cobb Y-Pipe & AccessPort). I was very surprised by
the outcome! I thought it'd be the exact opposite...the GT-R would pull
down low then the Murcielago at higher speeds, but not so.
In terms of production quality I think this is probably one of my best
videos to date. If you enjoyed it definitely let me know so I can create
more like it :)
