Drift Atlanta

Very interesting weekend to say the least. I would have to say that it was a good experience overall.
Let's start with the obvious. John Russakoff placed 4th. Congrats to him and the rest of the team for making it happen. It was definately a tough finish for him as he had electrical and gearbox issues the entire weekend. He really did come through driving his car as he went up against drivers like Chris Forsberg, Toshiki Yoshioka and Dai.
Taka Aono. I'm really feeling for him as he was doing great the entire weekend and he should have given Ryan Tuerck a run for his money. Unfortunatley, he had issues with his car as he was about to line up for his top 32 battle against the Camaro.
Alex Pfeiffer did a lot better than the scores showed. Not sure why he ended qualifying 33rd but I think he did whatever could to keep that car looking as good as it did. Even though that was his third event in that car, I think the results will soon follow.
Cyrus Martinez was focused and once again went up against Chris Forsberg for a second year in a row at Atlanta. Cyrus has shown a lot improvement since he was there last year and I am sure Chris noticed it.
Thanks to everyone including our sponsors for the support.
