Ken Gushi moves to 2nd in overall 2015 Championship Standings

Formula Drift Texas - Scion Racing

Though at times it was dramatic, there’s no questioning how action-packed Formula Drift was this past weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway. Throughout most of the Top 16, there were several ‘One More Time’ battles, and one driver in particular doing a tremendous amount of drift battling over the day was Scion Racing driver, Ken Gushi in the GReddy Racing FR-S.

Against Ryan Tuerck, Gushi went up to the maximum of two OMTs, and a single OMT against Kenny Moen, then another two OMTs against Daigo Saito before finding himself in the finals, where he came in just shy behind Masashi Yokoi. Gushi’s Second place finish pushed him into Second place overall in the Formula Drift Championship points standings, just behind Fredric Aasbo.

That Brutal Crash: Vaughn Answers The Big Questions

Posted on

Thanks to our incredibly well-connected world, even if you have just a passing interest in the sport of drifting, you probably know that Speedhunters driver Vaughn Gittin Jr. had a serious crash at last weekend’s Texas round of Formula D. It was a brutal hit; the sort of car-meets-wall moment that makes you stop and say, ‘sh*t, I hope he’s going to walk away from this one.’ He did, thankfully.
