shifts new sig made me remember something

this picture, even though i got it off the internet, i remember watching this event take pace, 2007 sweet 16 for the d1 world championship, american driver vaughn gittin jr. (in the blue mustang) and japanese driver Kazuhiro Tanaka (in the silver skyline) it was this race along with most of the races that made vaughn gittin jr recognized as one of the top drift racers on the planet (now he is the number 1 drift racer) it was a close race but vaughn had it in the bag until he accidentally taped the back bumper of tanaka's skyline which is an automatic dq, oh well now he stands as the greatest american drifter there ever was

Ah, the classic days of Vaughn Gittin Jr. I can't help but note, that Jr. piloted that very Mustang to not one, but two USA versus Japan events becoming not only the first American to win a D1 event, but the first to do so twice.

His dedication to both the Mustang and to drifting has yielded him a direct link and sponsorship to Ford Motor Company itself has lead to endorsements where he got the once in a lifetime chance to tour a 2010 Mustang across Japan and even has his own dealer option package for the Mustang, the RTR.

He's been featured in Need for Speed: Shift (irony?) having helped develop the Drifting physics in the game and even had his 2009 competition Mustang as a special unlockable reward in the game.

Now, he pilots the first 2011 Mustang with a 650 RWHP supercharged 5.0L Ford Coyote V8 with a new endorsement from Monster Energy and is first in points in the 2010 season. Out of four events, he's finished on the podium at the first 3. First in Long Beach, second at Road Atlanta and Wall, NJ.

The man inspires my passion for the sport of Drifting for sure and had it not been for him, competitive Drifting may not have even been of interest to me. Amplified by the fact that he's from Maryland, a mere hundred miles from me. Very Happy

Jr. is an awesome guy for sure. Had the liberty of meeting him a couple drift events. I like his complete lack of fake Jr. for the cameras. What you see is what you get, on or off camera. Mad respect.

I do watch multiple other motorsports. I'm big on Formula 1 and Touring, GT, Sports Car and endurance racing. NASCAR though is something I find myself unable to get into.
