Vaughn Gittin Jr. Ford Mustang RTR

2013 brought quite a few changes for Vaughn Gittin Jr. After finishing second in the standings in 2012, the 2010 Formula Drift champion left the comfort of Falken Tire to start his own team, combining forces with Nitto Tire. Gittin kicked off the season well with a second place finish in Long Beach and a third place finish in Atlanta to put him in the points lead, but failing to make the podium the rest of the season resulted in a fifth place finish in the standings at the end of the season.

The Formula Drift finale at Irwindale Speedway this past weekend seemed representative of Gittin’s season on the whole. After qualifying a strong second place and easily making it through the round of sixteen, he was eventually knocked out in the final eight. We’re sure it won’t keep Gittin down for long, though, and we can’t wait to see him compete for the championship once again next year.
