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.
