What can I say about drifting at Road Atlanta that hasn’t already been said? It’s a game of averages at this point, and welcome anomalies like Chelsea DeNofa winning at Long Beach are few and far between. Who was on top this time? Gittin won again, with Dai Yoshihara and Chris Forsberg rounding out the podium. Alec Hohnadell placed 4th, which is cool, but I don’t see the veteran hotshots going away anytime soon. Defending champ Fredric Aasbø blew his engine again just before the Top 32, but the Papadakis crew miraculously swapped in a new engine again. I must have seen that Scion with at least 30 engines in it. Maybe more. Anyway, with all the focus on getting the car running again, the tires were neglected and one debeaded during his lead run with Jeff Jones. Aasbø had already used his competition time out, so he had no way to change the tire and had to forfeit the battle. Keep in mind that he lost in the Top 32 in Atlanta last year as well, and still won the championship by a significant margin.
