Scion Leads Competition for Manufacturers Cup; Driver Fredric Aasbo in Second Place
Long Beach, Calif. October 7, 2014- Formula DRIFT victory is close enough to taste. Scion Racing sits in first place going into the series final round, competing for its first-ever Formula DRIFT manufacturers cup. Leading the teams success is 2014 Hankook tC driver Fredric Aasbo, currently in second place. If Aasbo wins the drivers championship, it would lead to Scion Racings first Formula DRIFT Cup, as well.
The Formula DRIFT series finale will take place Oct. 10-11 at Irwindale Speedway in Irwindale, California. Aasbos most recent win at the Texas Motor Speedway in September continued a lightning hot season, which has included more than one lucky break. Aasbo is a fan favorite, known as the Norwegian Hammer, who puts on an impressive show on the track. At the Texas Motor Speedway, Aasbo and the team went head-to-head with the series leader who hit Aasbos tC, forcing the team to scramble to fix the vehicle before the finals.
