Texas Motor Speedway was the 3rd stop on the Formula Drift Pro 2 schedule this past weekend. With one more round to go in the Formula Drift season after Texas, the results of Pro 2 Round 3 were bound to mix up the points just enough to make for an exciting race for the championship. Geoff Stoneback is currently on top of the points, with 6 drivers nipping at his heels for the title.
With unpredictable weather leading up to the Top 16 show, the track was a mix of all sorts of driving surfaces, never being consistent due to a rainstorm that rolled in hours before, and the continuous spitting from the clouds as the night moved on. What worked in dry qualifying the night before, was obviously not going to work in competition. We know that most of our readers don’t want to sit through a 2 hour long replay full of commercials and track delays, so we break down all the action Cliff Note’s style, or “TLDR – Too Long Didn’t Read” style, for our attention span challenged friends. We have something in common.
The second round of Formula Drift is here in two days and Sikky Racing is on the way! The last few months have been nonstop, building brand-new race cars to enter the Formula Drift series at a competitive level. We want to thank all of our team members, supportive family members, and friends who have given up their time, effort, and money in these efforts over these last few months. Sikky Racing would most importantly like to thank our fans who have been incredibly supportive and encouraging to the team! While we understand that we let a great deal of people down by not making it to Round 1 in Long Beach, we hope that you will see the payoff with taking the needed time to further develop the cars for our Rookie debut in Formula Drift.

Sikky Racing’s driver roster consists of James Evans, Dan Savage, and Brad Heyl. Leading up to this point, both James and Dan’s cars have been built at JE Import Performance, one of Sikky Manufacturing’s R&D shops, in Baltimore, Maryland. Brad has been building his iConcepts convertible Nissan 350z out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The car should be recognizable in being previously owned by ASD and piloted by Formula Drift veteran driver Tyler McQuarrie. Unfortunately, we must announce that due to the loss of some local support, Brad has not been able to keep the same pace in completing his build and will not be attending Round 2. Brad Heyl will be joining the team for Round 3 and has made the commitment to additionally compete in the Formula Drift Pro 2 series.
Sikky Racing is thrilled for its Formula Drift Rookie debut in a just a couple of days in Round 2 at Road Atlanta. We cannot wait for the gates to open on Friday morning for our fans to come check out the new cars in person! This has been a long time coming and can’t wait to finally give back to our supporters and fans!
