Long Beach, Calif. – May 12, 2017 – The Formula DRIFT PRO 2 season continued to Road Atlanta. Travis Reeder takes the win and moves to the top of the PRO 2 standings.
PRO 2 entered Atlanta, GA for the second event of the season. The future stars of the sport took to the famous Road Atlanta track and put on a show for the devoted fans.
This past weekend at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports park, Formula Drift came down to Phoenix for Pro2 Round 4 in their series. It was the first time Formula Drift had ever come to Phoenix. When they came here to scope out the track, they wanted a layout that nobody had ever drifted on before. That track layout happened to be on the back stretch of Main track, which comes off of the drag strip onto a huge left sweeper. The layout was extremely competitive along with extremely high speeds!

Jeff Jones Takes the Victory
|Long Beach, Calif. – May 7, 2016 – Formula DRIFT PRO 2 entered Road Atlanta for the first round of the PRO 2 championship. Jeff Jones in the DOC Nissan S14 takes the victory and the lead in the standings.
The inaugural event for PRO 2 at Road Atlanta kicked off the PRO 2 championship season. The course proved to be challenging and for many of the PRO 2 drivers as it was their first time drifting at Road Atlanta.
The top four qualifiers coincidentally also ended in the Top 4 of the competition. In the semi-finals, Ryan Litteral in the Ryan Litteral Racing Nissan S14 went head to head with Jeff Jones in one of the best battles of the evening. Litteral made contact with Jones, which ultimately gave Jones the win placing him in the Finals. Number one qualifier, Marc Landreville, in the Perry Performance Nissan S14 faced off against Dan Burkett in the RAD Dan Toyota Supra in unique circumstances due to a collision on course with fault given to Burkett. Landerville was given the win into the Finals, but with his car being unrepairable he was unable to continue in competition giving Jones the victory.
“I’m totally ecstatic to get first place,” said Jeff Jones, winner of Round 1 of the PRO 2 championship. “It was amazing and I’d like to thank DOC for helping me out to get the car ready. It was a blast and I can’t wait for the next round.”
The 2016 Formula DRIFT Pro Championship will continue to Round 3: Uncharted Territory on June 3-4 at Orlando Speedworld.
