Vaughn Gittin Jr and his 900 horsepower Mustang RTR have been making waves in the world of drifting and this weekend was no different, with an overall win Saturday night they were an untouchable duo right from the start.
On May 6th, the Monster Energy Driver earned the top qualifying spot of 31 drivers. Exhibiting his signature aggressive style driving at speeds over 100 miles per hour, Gittin performed as many would have expected he would and he held nothing back as he racked up 94 out of 100 possible points.
“This new Ford Mustang RTR has inspired me to simply just be me behind the wheel. That fact, combined with my team’s hard work, and all the support from the Ford Performance team throughout our development over the last year, is why we are on this top step,” said Gittin. “It feels so good to bring home a win for everyone that has worked so hard and supported our goals out here. I love this new Mustang.”
Though this is Gittin’s first season with his newly built Ford Mustang RTR, he has been competing in Formula Drift with a Mustang since 2005. So if you are looking for your chance to watch Vaughn in action then head to Orlando Speedworld in Orlando, Florida June 3-4th and watch as Vaughn and his Mustang RTR are once again put to the test.
