Team Falken Sweeps New Jersey
Stick around after the credits ;)
June 8, 2009
WALL TOWNSHIP, NJ (June 8, 2009) Performance and preparation paid off as
Team Falken Tires factory drivers swept the podium at Wall Speedway in
Saturday nights round 3 of the 2009 Formula Drift season. Darren McNamara
took the top rung in his Saturn Sky; Vaughn Gittin, Jr., earned second with
his 2010 Ford Mustang GT;
and Tyler McQuarrie finished third, driving his Nissan 350Z.
The achievement was historical as this was the first time ever for three
Team Falken cars to take the top three positions as well as the first time
one team has dominated the podium.
Wall Speedway, aptly named "The Gauntlet", is a 16-degree banked oval along
the straightaway with 30 degrees on the turns before moving to the figure 8
infield portion of the course. The capacity crowd witnessed strong
competition among Team Falken and other Formula D competitors as skies and
rain cleared allowing for ideal door-to-door high speed battles. Five
drivers using Falken Azenis RT615 tires advanced to the top 16. In the
finals, Gittin, Jr., stood up against McNamara with McNamara ultimately
taking the win in a close fought match.
Following round 3, Darren advances to first in points in the overall
championship, while Gittin, Jr. moves to fifth and Tyler McQuarrie moves
forward to seventh place in the standings.
Falken Tire would like to thank their drivers, staff, associates and fans
for helping make this long standing goal a reality for their team and
brand. Round 3 results truly show the capabilities of the Azenis RT-615 and
their dedication to the sport of drifting. Autosport Dynamics has done an
outstanding job building and preparing each of the three vehicles winning
this round, and as they enjoy this historic win, they will now focus on the
final four rounds of Formula D as they gun for the Championship.
Team Falken will head to hotter climates when Formula D hits Las Vegas and
goes All In for Round 4 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, July 10-11.

Falken Tire Driver Feature: Vaughn Gittin Jr.
Based on having spent a quarter of his life drifting, one might say Vaughn
Gittin, Jr.s name is synonymous with the popular sport. Indeed, Vaughn has
enjoyed a strong relationship with both Falken and Ford, showing the world
the capabilities of his powerful Mustang, crushing the throttle to
reach maximum power while keeping his car in control on his Falken Azenis
In late 2008, Vaughn drifted the streets of downtown Los Angeles for the
Bosch performance art promotions, and just recently jetted off to Japan,
where he drove a Falken Tire Shod 2010 Mustang across the country, making
key stops at world renowned tracks such as Ebisu and the YZ circuit.
The combination of Team Falken, Vaughn and Ford has realized many epic
moments including two historic D1 Grand Prix wins. First, at U.S.A vs.
Japan and a repeat at D1s World Championship
In addition to his international travels, Vaughn recently treated NHRA drag
racing legend John Force to the drift of his life (some witnesses went so
far as to say ride of his life) as part of Barrett-Jacksons drifting
experience at the auctioneers recent event in Scottsdale, AZ, and took
multiple road racing champion Tommy Kendall on a test drive for SpeedTV,
both riding in his brand new 2010 Falken Tire Ford Mustang.
While drifting is just the latest talent Vaughn has developed behind the
wheel, hes had the speed sensation for a long time. Since I was born, I
have lived and breathed cars, he declares, asking his namesake to do
fishtails and burnouts the way other dads drive their children around the
block to soothe them. I have always loved the feeling of the back end
skating around, engine screaming and tires smoking, he adds, which
ultimately led him to choose a career in motorsports. Moving from motocross
to drifting paid off quickly, and Vaughn rose to the top of the field. He
caught the eye of Falken Tire who in 2004, was eager to expand their
drifting efforts and take the U.S. drifting scene by storm. The rest, as
one says, is history, and Vaughn has become a key part of Falkens extensive
commitment to this exciting sport, both in the U.S. and internationally.
His new 2010 Ford Mustang
featuring state-of-the-art technology, is set for an exciting 2009 schedule
as the centerpoint of Team Falken, ready to meet and once again, conquer
