“Tyler and I both lost in the semi-finals so we had to run against each other for a third place finish,” said Forsberg. “I was thinking about the last time I ran against him and had my mental notes ready for this battle. His car puts out a lot of smoke. I just drove into the smoke and hoped he was driving as fast as I was. It was a super tight battle, but I took the podium.”

Drivers faced a different venue in Nevada. The event started at 4 pm and continued past midnight. “It’s so hot in Vegas, the track temperature is still 100 degrees at midnight,” said Forsberg. “It was nice to run at night and it’s great to have such awesome fans. The crowd stayed and gathered around the podium around 1 am.”

Forsberg currently has 307 points and Ryan Tuerck has 294 points. Samuel Hubinette rounds out the top three in the 2009 Formula DRIFT professional Championship Series with 271 points.

My K&N filters took the heat, took the track debris, rubber and the smoke and continued to give me power,” said Forsberg. “K&N also protects my engine.”

Formula DRIFT returns to Evergreen Speedway near Seattle, Washington August 7-8.
