Falken has historically done very well the past 3 years at this track. I think JR is due for a win, so I'll put him down as the winner.

Forsberg has also been on a hell of a streak, so let's drop him up there.

Tuerck is due for a podium, and his car has looked strong in each round. Let's make it a full DA Sweep:

1st - Vaughn Gittin Jr
2nd - Ryan Tuerck
3rd - Chris Forsberg

Wild card - Chelsea Denofa - He's had some of the worst draws of any driver, and I think he just needs a good bracket before he'll break out. Plus, he's been driving his car more than almost any other driver (Just drove XDC last weekend). Oh, and he's on my fantasy drift team, so I want him to get me some points!

My Predictions:

#1: The Bridges Racing team will put a "Frequent Stops" decal on the back of Daigo's car.

#2: Falken Tire will put a police issue battering ram on the front of JTP's car

#3: Chris Forsberg will reveal that MTV's "Jersey Shore" is a new sponsor and his 370Z is not actually painted orange but spray tanned.

#4: The "Bird Call Guy" from the US open will interupt Jacob's halftime show

#5: During Ken Gushi's qualifying run a deer will suddnly dart from the wilderness and ram into the side of his FR-S, spinning him out. Before running away the deer will look at Gushi and say "this time I didn't miss..."

#6: J-Rod will find Waldo and buy him a beer.

Results Predictions:

Winner: Dai Yoshihara
2nd Place: JTP
3rd Place: Daigo Saito

1. Whining

2. Looking sad because money doesn't buy talent.

3. Daydreams of Rogaine and a diet.

4. Wishing I was not driving an ugly car.

5. Complaining about the use of NOS.

6. Wishing someone would go back to their own country so I'll stop getting school'd!!

I predict:

1. JTP will make a mistake in qualifying and score low, get paired up with Daigo in TOP 32, and Daigo moves on.

2. FINAL 4 Dai, Odi, Daigo, JR

I beg to differ Mars. If it rains like it is calling for you are going to see more J drivers schooling the A drivers.

I was really close to getting two out of three. Those of you saying Daigo wouldn't podium just got lucky! He let the little mistakes defeat him. Definitely was not expecting a win from JR though. Shake 'n Bake!

Forsberg messed up my top 4 taking out JTP and Daigo.

Name a track he has driven on in Japan that could prepare him for Wall?

What was the reason for allowing Chris to spin?

Wow, what an event! So many crazy tandem rounds! JR had to put in some serious work. His first win since 2010, well deserved!

They ruled that it was Daigo's fault Chris spun because Daigo got off-throttle and upset the momentum too much.

I was not a big fan of that call but it is what it is. I would have liked to see them go OMT.

Since when is that a rule? What's the point of front brake lights if the judges will just make arbitrary calls?

Let's also talk about how Chelsea Denofa was jerked out of some points by inept judging. I hope he can get the car back together.
