Falken gears up for Atlanta Formula D
Falken Tire Corp. is gearing up for this weekend's Formula Drift competition in Atlanta, Ga.
Team Falken drivers who will compete include Vaughn Gittin Jr., Tyler McQuarrie, Dajiro Yoshihara, Darren McNamara and Justin Pawlak.
Veteran Ross Petty and Mike Whiddett also will represent Falken at the event.
Gittin turned in a top podium performance at last month's Formula D event in Long Beach, Calif.
"The season is young and we must approach every round as a stepping stone to our goal of winning the championship," says Jonathan Bradford, Falken's drift team supervisor. "I'm confident that everyone on my team will supersede their efforts from the last event and raise the bar even higher in Atlanta."
Qualifying for the Atlanta competition begins on Friday, May 7, with the main event on May 8.
