FORT WORTH, TX – September 10, 2016 – Team Falken driver Matt Field took the top spot on the podium at Texas Motor Speedway in the latest round of the 2016 Formula Drift Championship. Field’s first-ever first-place finish notches back-to-back event wins for Falken, following Aurimas “Odi” Bakchis’ win at Evergeen Speedway in August. This is also Falken’s third consecutive visit to the podium this season.
“We couldn’t be happier for Matt and our Falken team,” said Steve Wong, Supervisor, Motorsports and Events for Falken. “We knew we had the drivers and the tires to get to the top this season. With Matt’s win, and our third straight trip to the podium, we were proven right. The new course configuration made the track fast and challenging for these drivers, but our AZENIS line delivered. We’re confident we’ll see more of these top finishes for our drivers.”
