IRWINDALE, CALIFORNIA, OCTOBER 14, 2018 — With an absolutely incredible night of driving, Vaughn Gittin Jr. put on a drifting clinic by besting his opponents in the final round of Formula Drift 2018. In a season filled with low points, mechanical struggles, strategic and personnel changes, Vaughn took to the finals at The House of Drift and spoiled Frederic Aasbo’s championship run. Though it would not come easy for Vaughn and his Ford Mustang RTR team as they worked tirelessly to secure the victory late into the night following two one more times with Aasbo.
On May 7th, 2016, World Champion drifter and Professional Fun-Haver, Vaughn Gittin Jr, piloted his Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR to first place at the second round of the Formula Drift Championship at Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA after knocking out all competitors and qualifying first in a dominating perfect event.
Vaughn had this to say about the victory, “Perfect events don’t come easy in Formula Drift. This new Ford Mustang RTR has inspired me to simply just be me behind the wheel. That fact combined with my team’s hard work and all the support from the Ford Performance team throughout our development over the last year is why we are on this top step. It feels so good to bring home a win for everyone that has worked so hard and supported our goals out here!”
