With a personal best in results for Round 4 in New Jersey, Nate Hamilton comes into Round 5 hungry to continue his climb in the points with the Formula Drift Series.
Being a new track for Nate, he had only a few short practices before it all needed to count.
Qualifying went down in patchy conditions, shaking up the qualifying order. For Nate, he would be battling FD Series Champion, Michael Essa.
Throwing down an intense battle, literally until the wheels fell off, Nate would take the win and be put against another Formula D Series Champion, Fredric Aasbo.
With a miscalculation on his chase run, Aasbo would take the win against Hamilton and continue on to get first place in the event.
Leaving the event Nate maintains his standings in the points race, but closes the gap further in points between his current position and the next two in front of him.
With Round 6 Formula Drift Seattle happening soon, the points chase is bound to get interesting…stay tuned!
