Formula Drift Round 4
Las Vegas

Dear Diary,

I had some really high hopes for Las Vegas this year, we made some minor changes to the car to get some more speed so I could not wait to get it on the track. We got a chance to test the car out the weekend before and it felt great! It was the first time we had run our car outside of competition in a very long time. With the tandem battles getting so competitive this year our team was doing our best to keep up with everyone. When we got to the track we noticed that Formula Drift was running a new course. It seemed much more suited for great tandem so we had a really good feeling about the weekend.

On Thursday we did not really do anything special except to run the car and make sure everything was good. We took a few different lines through the course and tried a couple different entry styles to find the best way through the main corner. The car was running great and we all felt really comfortable with the setup and did not change anything for Friday’s qualifying session. Thursday night was also the Formula Drift Blackjack Tournament. It was a ton of fun! Lots of the drivers and crew came out to the casino to compete… in the end, I made it through the three rounds, finishing 2nd Overall! What a great way to start the weekend!

Friday started out...
