Long Beach, Calif. July 18, 2014 Formula DRIFT PRO 2 continued the season at Evergreen Speedway with the second of four rounds of competition. Dan Savage in the Sikky Manufacturing Mazda RX-8 takes the victory and shares the lead in the standings.
PRO 2 continued today at Evergreen Speedway. PRO 2 was introduced as an intermediary series between the Formula DRIFT Pro-Am and Pro Championship to help drivers get acclimated to the competition level and venues, while gaining valuable experience. As the first year of the PRO 2, drivers that are eligible include both licensed Pro-Am and Pro Championship drivers. Drivers were also given the option to compete in both Pro 2 and the Pro Championship.
PRO 2 has proven to be a valuable platform, says Jim Liaw, President of Formula DRIFT. Drivers still transitioning into the Pro Championship have now found success in this intermediate Series.
Dan Savage met Jeff Jones in the CX Racing Nissan S14 in the final battle. Jones spun to give the advantage and victory to Savage. Coming in third place was Jeremy Lowe in the Enjuku Racing Mazda RX-7, who currently stands in third place for the PRO 2 Championship.
Coming all the way out here to the West Coast for the PRO 2 round was stressful, said Dan Savage, winner of Round 2 of PRO 2. But we were able to qualify high and finish at the top. It was a god send and we cant wait to carry this momentum in Texas.
The 2014 Formula DRIFT PRO 2 season continues with Round 3 on September 12-13 at Texas Motor Speedway. For more information visit: www.formuladrift.com and find Formula DRIFT on Instagram @formulad, Facebook www.facebook.com/formuladrift and Twitter @FormulaD.
