If you ever want to prove to your friends or doubters in general that Drifting is a big deal, there’s no better place to take them than the final round of Formula Drift at the house of drift! It was another exciting and dramatic round at Irwindale Speedway where after many twists and turn in events, FD rookie Daigo Saito came out on top of not only round 7 but the over all series. Daigo has been the talk of the series since round one in Long Beach. Some of that talk has been a mixture of bad and good as some of the FD drivers are not too fond of Daigo’s style. But love him or hate him, Daigo made history this past weekend by becoming the first FD rookie to win the Formula Drift Championship. A few highlights of the night after the jump.
