  • Round 5: Throwdown took place in front of a capacity crowd at Evergreen Speedway

  • FD SEA represents DeNofa’s second win in a row and his third this season, finally giving him the points lead in the 2021 FD PRO Championship from Matt Field (USA). He leads by 1 point from Field
  • Top qualifier Michael Essa (USA) was eliminated by Dylan Hughes who finished third and ahead of Field by virtue of a superior qualifying position
  • Jonathan Hurst (USA) was the top rookie at FD SEA, finishing ninth overall driving the Cash Racing Infiniti G37
  • During the course of the competition heats the judges requested One More Time on eight occasions, and seven drivers used their 5min Competition Time Out to effect repairs during an action-packed round
