Wall Speedway, with a 16 degree banked oval into a straightaway, then into 2 30 degree horseshoe turns, you can see why Round4 is named the Gauntlet. With a little bit of rain during Qualifying on Friday and perfect weather on Saturday, spectators filled the grandstands for a sold out main event.
With a tight battle to the end, Vaughn Gittin, Jr. in the Monster Energy / Falken Tire Ford Mustang, takes his first win of the season, while Daigo Saito, in the Achilles Tire / Bridges Racing Lexus SC430 takes 2nd and Chris Forsberg in the NOS Energy / Hankook Tire Nissan 370Z take 3rd. North-East fans were excited to see two local drifters, Gittin and Forsberg on the podium!

Formula DRIFT hit Wall Speedway for Round 4 aka “The Gauntlet” on June 18th. This year was an exciting race where the Gauntlet lived up to it’s name and claimed many cars during qualifications and the main competition with their 30 degree embankments and 16 degree banked ovals along the straightaways. Conrad Grunewald (Hankook Chevy Camaro) took the 1st place victory from 2nd place Justin Pawlak (Falken Ford Mustang) in a very tight “classic American muscle car” competition – Mustang vs Camaro. The battle for 3rd went to Daijiro Yoshihara (Discount Tire/Falken Nissan 240SX) after Ryan Tuerek (Mobil 1/Gardella Racing Chevy Camaro) crashed into the wall in the initial turn. Formula DRIFT and Wall Speedway showcased an excellent race to a near sold-out capacity event proving that this highly competitive sport is growing every season.

The 3rd Annual meet took place on another gorgeous sunny day at the Allentown Expo Center. Instead of just having a bunch of car guys/girls talking about what next mod they are looking to purchase, the eastcoastbimmer guys decided to throw a bit of drifting, burnout, and “beat up the bimmer” into the mix. The crowed loved the added excitement and we all can’t wait for the next! If your in the Tri-State area, be sure to come out to the next one… we all know it’s only going to get bigger and better.
