As Formula DRIFT returned to Texas Motor Speedway for Rounds Five and Six of the 2020 PRO Championship and Round Three of the Link ECU PRO2 Championship, the series introduced a revised track layout. This created a fluid, high-speed course that gave the teams a fresh challenge. It would test the drivers’ skill as they tried to fill each drift zone and saw a number of collisions throughout the weekend as drivers either charged to regain proximity or got lost in the smoke trail.

It’s been a long two months wait, but I was thrilled to be back for round six of the Formula Drift Pro Championship at Texas Motor Speedway in Texas.
As usual I had no idea what to expect heading in to the weekend. Even if we see similar drivers fighting for points, you could practically draw straws on who is going to be on the top step of the podium at each event. The drivers seem to be on point. It really bared down to who was going to be able to hit that switch and turn it on and land on that podium. I had a couple wishes going in to this event. Hoping that the championship title would not be determined at round six and for the point’s gap to be closer heading into the last round of the season. Being that I received my two wishes, I’m even crazier in the head now and cannot wait for the Final Fight on October 10-11th at Irwindale Speedway, which of all seven rounds is my favorite.
