Evergreen Drift – ProAm Round 3 Results

Posted on

Monore, WA – July 23, 2011 – Round 3 of the Evergreen Drift ProAm sanctioned by Formula Drift and presented by NOS Energy Drink saw the triumphant return of Ian Fournier and his Fatlace / ACT Clutch R32 Skyline.

Round 3 was held in conjunction with Formula Drift round 5 at Evergreen Speedway which drew in a capacity crowd of energetic drifting fans from all over the Northwest. According to Formula Drift attendance was up over 10% from last season’s event showing strong growth for the sport in the Pacific Northwest.

Evergreen Drift ProAm was breaking records as well with the largest field of competitors in the three year history of the series. Drivers from Washington, British Columbia, Oregon, and California compete in a five round quest to earn Formula Drift professional licenses.

Chris Jeanneret was looking strong all weekend in the CNC Autosports / Diversity Law S14. He was one of many that suffered mechanical issues and had to replace a blown transmission before qualifying on Friday and then hustle to fix bent suspension components before the Top 16 main event on Saturday. The CNC crew was able to keep the car running enabling Chris to finish third.

Nik Jimenez and his Intec Racing / Apexi / Falken Tire S13 joined the fray for the first time this season. Nik was not fazed at all by lack of seat time qualifying first and finishing second.

Ian Fournier debuted his retooled Fatlace / ACT Clutch R32 Skyline and is now sporting Nissan V8 power. His consistent and exciting runs brought home first place.

Podium Results:

1st – Ian Fournier | $500 | Product and $50 certificate from
2nd – Nik Jimenez (#1 Qualifier) | $300 | $50 for Top Qualifer | Product and $25 Certificate from
3rd – Chris Jeanneret| $200 | Product and $25 Certificate from
