What's up Las Vegas! My name is Vaughn Gittin Jr. and I compete in the Formula Drift series in my Falken Tire Ford Racing Mustang. I am known best as the winner of the 2005 D1GP USA vs. Japan and the 2007 D1GP World Championship.
I am excited to compete this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Formula Drift's Round Four, and hopefully take a podium finish giving me some points to advance higher in the ranks then my current 8th place position.
At Round Three at Englishtown Raceway, I made it to the top 16 after killing it all day, but was unable to compete due to technical difficulties. So you can definitely say I'm craving some competition at this event.
A year ago I competed in the D1GP All Star Exhibition at LVMS where I was awarded the "Chris Blair Award" for my performance. So I know this high-speed course well, and can't wait to get back on it.
If you are making it out to this awesome event, be sure to stop by the huge Falken Tire pit area and give me a high five. I'll be the guy wearing the American flag driving shoes, pushing the limits of the Falken Tire Ford Racing Mustang, with my foot to the floor, insane angle, and a sea of smoke behind me - you can't miss me.
