Post-Formula D Sonoma.

First of all, I want to say thanks to everyone who helped my team to get the car to run before the Finals. I appreciate each and every one of you who was there to help me get back on the track. This goes to the Falken Team, Bergenholtz Team (Ron), Maxxis-LS auto Kevin, Nate, and everyone else that was there to support my team. Thanks to each and every single one of you. Thanks to my fellow drivers that stood by to cheer us on! Although I wanted to go out there and rip it up against Stephan Verdier, the motor couldn't take another breath. Stephan took the well-deserved 1st and I came 2nd. I am very happy with our performance with RS-R Scion Toyo. Everyone from RS-R has put in their blood, sweat, and tears to make this happen, and finally we are seeing results. It just felt like everything came together and worked. Unfortunately, we couldn't make it to the end to show the fans the final battle but I guess you can say, we still have development to do with the RS-R Scion tC. We will be back stronger.

Overall, we have moved up in rankings as well. From 33 in the beginning of the season, we are now up at 12th. I can't express how grateful I am of everyone this weekend. From the fans, to my team, and of course the guys that helped my team get the car back on track. Thanks to all of you guys. Finally, i get one of those carbon trophies that I wanted to steal from Chris Forsberg.

Also on podium this weekend in 3rd place was Miki. This would be his second podium finish this season. But he is only about 10 points ahead of me in 11th place. Robbie is in 9th place about 29 points ahead of me. With one more round to go, it will be interesting to see how the Formula Drift Championship turns out.
