Title Fight | October 8th – 9th

It All Comes Down to the TITLE FIGHT for the Formula DRIFT Championship

The Toyota Speedway at Irwindale is known as the “House of Drift.” The legendary drifting venue gave drifting in the U.S it’s roots and is often referred to as the “birthplace” of American drifting.

The Formula DRIFT Championship will be decided at this final event of the season and drivers will battle one last time to earn the coveted title of Formula DRIFT champion. The track is the home track for most of the drivers and each year the competition grows more intense. The infamous course is challenging and exciting utilizing part of the short oval track and many inside turns.

Last year current champion Chris Forsberg took home both the championship and Tires.com Triple Crown bonus award at this event, but it was a close call as Ryan Tuerck took the event victory and came in second place overall by a mere 6 points. Tyler McQuarrie came in second at the event and secured his third place finish for the season. This year, watch as the drivers go all out and put it all on the line one last time for a chance to become the new Formula DRIFT champion.
