Just 5 hours before I write this I was still at the Willow Springs getting coverage for Top Drift and now I’m here editing what seems to be an endless amount of pictures. Anyways, today was a good day overall. Aside from the heat the whole event went on without a hitch. Although I showed up mid-day, I was still able to catch most of the qualifying rounds. 


Qualifying was very intense because the drivers were only allowed a couple of runs in order to qualify for Top 16. During the top 16 tandem battles the drivers gave it all they had and only a few came out on top. Congratulations to Spike Chen for taking 1st place in his Supercharged S13, Donovan Brockway for coming in 2nd place with his E30 BMW and Dan Burkett for placing 3rd place in his Mazda Rx7.
