Long Beach, Calif. – May 12, 2017 – The Formula DRIFT PRO 2 season continued to Road Atlanta. Travis Reeder takes the win and moves to the top of the PRO 2 standings.

PRO 2 entered Atlanta, GA for the second event of the season. The future stars of the sport took to the famous Road Atlanta track and put on a show for the devoted fans.

“PRO 2 has grown and now has its own fan base,” said Jim Liaw, President of Formula DRIFT. “This was proven tonight as fans stayed through the late hours at the track to watch the young talent compete.”

The semi-finals pitted Matt Vankirk in the Fortune Auto / Achilles Nissan 240 with Brody Goble in the BG Motorsports Nissan 240. Vankirk outdrove his opponent to move into the Finals. On the other side of the bracket Randall Waters faced Reeder, Waters was deemed at fault after contact on his chase run giving Reeder the win to move him into the Finals. The finals was anti-climatic as Vankirk experienced mechanical issues on the first run forcing him out of the competition to give Reeder the victory and moving him into the top spot in the standings after two events.

“I’m overwhelmed. My team did awesome and I want to thank everyone that had a hand in my program this year and believing in me, ” said Travis Reeder, winner of PRO 2: Atlanta. “I’m feeling really blessed right now and am going try to keep it consistent into the next round to keep the momentum going.”

Formula DRIFT continues to Round 4: The Gauntlet at Wall Speedway on June 2-3, 2017.

Long Beach, Calif. – April 28, 2017 – The Formula DRIFT PRO 2 season kicked off in Orlando Speed World. The hometown favorite, Kevin Lawrence in the Enjuku Racing / BC Racing / Hankook Tire Nissan 240 takes home the victory.

PRO 2 kicked off the season in sunny Orlando, Florida with the first of four competitions. The action packed event had many highlights throughout the day and showcased the talent of the rising stars of the sport.

“The level of talent within the PRO 2 rankings is quite impressive,” said Jim Liaw, President of Formula DRIFT. “What started as a stepping stone for many American drifters has now blossomed into an international field of drivers competing at a high level for their chance at a Pro license and the chance to drive against the best drifters in the world.”

The quarter-finals featured door to door action that was often too close to call. The competition between Brandon Schmidt and Kevin Lawrence had two “One more time,” battles with Lawrence eventually getting the call to move into the Finals. In the other half of the quarter-finals, Travis Reeder met Josh Robinson and in one of the most exciting moments of the day, Reeder while having a debeaded tire managed to maintain drift to move into the Finals, while Robinson secures the third place finish. In a close final battle, the Orlando native, Lawrence was able to edge out Reeder to get the victory and take the lead in the PRO 2 points standings.

“I couldn’t do this without the support of my team and partners including Enjuku Racing, Hankook Tire, BC Racing, Competition Clutch and Konig wheels and without these guys I wouldn’t be out here driving, ” said Kevin Lawrence, winner of PRO 2: Orlando. “To all my team that is just here throughout the day – changing tires and just sweating it out with me is all I can ask for.”

Formula DRIFT continues to Round 3: Road to the Championship at Road Atlanta on May 12-13.
