tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganSince I was in New York for Round 1, I was excited to be in town for Round 2 of the 2012 TD ProAm season. After the first round, the points standings were anything but expected. Second-year ProAm driver Eugene Kretschmer was in the lead, followed by veteran Matt Madrigali. Tyler Wolfson from San Diego was sitting in third, and he’s running in Vegas ProAm, Top Drift, and Evergreen ProAm as well. Jeff Wolfson, who made his first appearance at TD ProAm, though he’s been around for a while, and Marcus Fry, 2011’s highest ranking driver who didn’t go pro, rounded out the top five positions.

Geoff relented and gave him one extra.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganJulian Jacobs showed up to judge, but he was on the wrong side of the fence.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganMatt Madrigali bapped the wall early in practice and broke a PBM rear knuckle, ending his day after only three practice runs.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganJeff Wolfson was making some of the best smoke.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganLooking to repeat his first place finish, Eugene Kretschmer overcooked one initiation and smacked the wall pretty hard.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganThe impact spun him around and sent him up the berm.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganStill driveable! Eugene would have it back on the track in no time at all.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganNot wanting to be outdone, Rick Cunanan rode the berm in his own style.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganIt took some effort to get his car back onto the pavement, but he was able to drive away too!
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganSean Hoover had been driving his girlfriend’s S13, but he got his S14 back together just in time for this event. He finished it so last minute that he didn’t even have time to request new number panels!
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganKiavash Shariloo worked the gate in the morning and was rewarded with the opportunity to drift his RWD Subaru. Pretty good tradeoff I’d say.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganIs this one of the best looking drift cars around or what?
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganAlex Hsieh’s new paintjob makes his car not seem like a POS anymore. Looks pretty sick actually! All the Team Mint cars match now.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganNick Bayati felt left out so he joined the Berm Club. He only did a little dirt drop though.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganOregon’s Matt Coffman continues to have another one of the smokiest cars in the series. I’m sure the LS helps a lot.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganAlready having hit the berm once, Rick feared it not.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganOn another run he even managed to suck Alveen in behind him.  Oh the perils of being the chase driver!
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganEven through all that, Rick was ready for qualifying. Unfortunatley he didn’t make the show.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganSo was Billy Hanson, in his first TDProAm appearance. He didn’t make it either.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganRob Webber is due for a win one of these days. He’s one of the most persistent drivers in the series. He qualified right at 8th place.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguigan
Tyler Wolfson qualified a little lower at 10th place.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganJose Flores was right behind Tyler at 11th place.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganLex King landed squarely in in 5th.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganIt seems like Joe McGuigan has gotten the hang of driving his IS with the V8 in it. Good enough to qualify third!
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganJeff Wolfson stepped his game up and qualified second.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganSo who nabbed the top qualifying spot? This guy. Mr. Josh McGuire.
 
Here’s the full qualifying list:
1. Josh McGuire
2. Jeff Wolfson
3. Joe McGuigan
4. Alveen Gideon
5. Lex King
6. Marcus Fry
7. Nick Bayati
8. Rob Webber
9. Eugene Kretschmer
10. Tyler Wolfson
11. Jose Flores
12. Philippe Abatol
13. Matt Coffman
14. Alex Hsieh
15. Sean Hoover
16. Dan Collins
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganRight away things got interesting. Dan Collins spun on his follow run, but Josh’s car broke when Danwas in the lead, sending the battle to One More Time where Dan spun again.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganI thought I was watching Conrad and Daigo for a minute here, as Alveen Gideon and Matt Coffman went to three one more times!
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganMatt spun on his last lead run and the crowd was upset that he walked away with the win. The reasoning? Alveen went off course on both of his runs, even though he kept it in drift.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganPhilippe Abatol straightened out when following Lex King, and Lex basically ate Philippe for dinner when they swapped leads.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganNick Bayati couldn’t seem to keep his car on the track, and  Tyler Wolfson moved on.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganMarcus Fry is having a rough season. Many picked him as a favorite to win the series, but with a spin in the Top 16 it’s not looking likely. Jose Flores laid down two clean runs and that led us into the Top 8.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganRob Webber will have to wait til Round 3 for another shot at that win, as he put three wheels off on his chase run against Josh McGuire.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganLex King and Matt Coffman both had clean first runs, but Lex came out with the advantage. He ran shallow when chasing Matt, so they went One More Time. Matt made a correction and understeered on his next lead run, and Lex moved on. Matt is still leading the Rookie of the Year race.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganSean Hoover had the advantage after he left a huge gap in front of Tyler Wolfson, but he spun on his follow run, sending Tyler to the Top 4.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganTeam Mint went head to head for the last battle of the Top 8, and a pair of half spins and a correction stopped Alex Hsieh’s best day ever. Jose was given the opportunity to continue his best day ever.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganLex drove on the wrong side of the entry cone when he chased Josh McGuire in the Top 4, but Josh spun at the end of course. Initially the judges gave the win to Lex once they determined that the cone was not in the correct place, thus negating Lex’s error. They later retracted the win and called a One More Time. Lex was determined to get his win back and laid down two  great runs back to back while Josh straightened out on his follow run.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganIn the Consolation Round, the judges thought Josh McGuire’s entry on his lead run was a little bit too weird, and coupled with him straighening out behind Tyler Wolfson on his second run, he lost third place.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganAnd then it all came down to Lex and Jose. Lex finished second at Round 5 last year, which was his first and only podium. Jose had never been on the podium before, so it was going to be a big finish for both drivers no matter what happened.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganOn their first run, Lex had a fantastic lead run and Jose straighened out behind him. I’m sure they both felt the pressure on the second run. All Lex had to do was follow cleanly and Jose needed Lex to make a mistake. Jose laid down a near-perfect qualifying run as Lex, getting a little too gangster with the “ermahgerd proximiter,” straightened out and went two wheels off. And that was that.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganOur podium was a motley crew of drivers.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganThere was also champagne for the first time ever.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganEven though Jose and Lex battled for first place, they can still be friends.
 
tdproam thunderdrift drifting formula d proam lex king jose flores tyler wolfson josh mcguire joe mcguiganJose had never opened champagne before. He told me “I think I’ll just stick to drifting.” to which I replied, “Man, if you stick to drifting, you’re going to have to know how to open champagne!”
 
Here are the new standings after Round 2:
 
1. Tyler Wolfson, 170 points
2. Eugene Kretschmer, 162 points
3. Lex King, 157 points
4. Jeff Wolfson, 141 points
5. Jose Flores, 126.5 points
6. Joe McGuigan, 125 points
7. Marcus Fry, 123 points
8. Matt Coffman, 118 points
