Vaughn Gittin Jr. slid into Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin for the Kohler International Challenge with Brian Redman presented by Ford. This signature event is known for drawing in over 1000 entries for racing, touring, and the Road & Track Concours d'Elegance. Vaughn kept the crowd on their feet with his notorious drifting smoke show that displayed the remarkable performance of his 2010 Falken Tire Ford Mustang and K&N Filters.

Over the weekend, Vaughn was on hand to give over 150 race enthusiasts the ride of their lives on the track. “Driving a car of this caliper for ride after ride really takes a toll on its hardware,” says Vaughn. “Luckily, my confidence level stayed up knowing that K&N protects both the air coming into and the oil flowing through my motor. K&N is definitely a huge part of why my Mustang is so reliable.”

Brian Redman, legendary driver and host of the event, strapped into the passenger seat for his chance to experience drifting. “It was a true honor taking Brian for a ride,” says Vaughn. “I’ve already received a phone call saying that he wants me to teach him how to drift. It’s great to know that I’ve made a legend like him fall in love with the incredible sport of drifting.”
