Coming into the second round of the 2019 Formula DRIFT season in Orlando, FL for the AutoZone Scorched presented by Black Magic, many teams and drivers had a lot to prove. In the Formula DRIFT Black Magic Pro Championship, Aurimas “Odi” Bakchis had taken the win at the opening round in Long Beach, CA while the top three drivers from 2018 were not able to make the podium. As a result, the capacity crowd were assured fireworks on the banked Orlando course as the top teams tried to get their season back on track.
The 2018 Formula DRIFT championship swapped the tight Streets of Long Beach for round two at Orlando Speed World this weekend. And the drama began early with an incident in practice that saw Chelsea DeNofa (USA) hit the wall in his BC Racing / Nitto Tire Ford Performance Mustang RTR. He was avoiding an accident on the track but was unable to avoid the wall.
