Vaughn Gittin Jr. Reaches Great 8 at FD St. Louis
Knowing he left some driving on the track during qualifying, Vaughn found it for Saturday’s sixth round of the Formula Drift Season. In his first battle, Vaughn bested Dan Burkett setting up a Top 16 battle with Chris Forsberg. Following first, Vaughn made contact with Chris resulting in both cars being put on the clock for any necessary repairs. However, Chris was deemed at fault, and unable to repair his car in the allotted time, Vaughn would get the win and advance to the Great 8. It was a hard-fought battle there with Piotr Wiecek that unfortunately saw Vaughn topped by the eventual third place finisher.
Vaughn’s whirlwind summer continues with a quick trip to China for a Ford Mustang event this weekend followed by Gridlife ATL August 23-25. He will next be competing in Formula Drift at Texas Motor Speedway September 12-14.
