If you haven’t had a chance to read up on what happened to Walker Wilkerson’s Formula Drift car, and how it was recovered and the story behind all that… Please go read it all on Walker’s blog…
Going to sleep Thursday night I don’t think anyone expected rain. I’m sure most people woke up Friday morning to a wet and rainy surprise, but by the time I got to the track it finally stopped raining. Most people took it easy except Daigo Saito, he went all out as usual.

ATLANTA, GA – Team Falken continued its dominating stance in both the 2012 Formula Drift Championship and at the series event at Road Atlanta, where Justin Pawlak, winner of the first event of the year at last month’s Long Beach street course, took the victory over Fredric Aasbo. It was Falken’s third consecutive Formula D win at the Atlanta track.
Driving the 2013 Falken Tire Ford Mustang, Pawlak has now notched the first two wins and leads the Formula D championship rankings by commanding margin. The number of entrants competing in the popular drift series has grown significantly with 48 drivers fighting for a chance to compete in the top 32 tandem round. Falken teammate Vaughn Gittin, Jr., qualified second; Pawlak eighth; while the remaining Falken team members sat in 9th (Daijiro Yoshihara); 21st (Falken privateer Walker Wilkerson); and 31st (Darren McNamara, who debuted his new Falken Tire 350Z).
Threw this together for Walker. Congrats on getting 1st qualifier and 2nd overall.
