Drivers took to the streets of Long Beach April 10 and 11 to compete in the first round of the Formula Drift 2015 championship. This round not only kicked off the U.S. championship, but the overseas and world championships, as well.
Norwegian Fredric Aasbø battled his way to the top of the podium in his Scion tC, followed by Aurimas "Odi" Bakchis in his Hyundai Genesis Coupe (second) and Ryan Tuerck in his Scion FR-S (third).
Tanner Foust made his return to Formula Drift last weekend, driving a 900 HP VW Passat. The last time Foust competed in Formula Drift was at the 2010 season-ender. Foust was eliminated after losing to Justin Pawlak during the Top 32 in Long Beach.
