Formula Drift RD 7 @ Irwindale Speedway: Title Fight

1 of 28



The final event of Formula Drift kicked off here Toyota Speedway of Irwindale on Oct. 11. Drivers tested their might as they slid rear-wheel powered cars around NASCAR grade banks trying to get as close to each apex as possible. None of these cars are shy of 400 horsepower and with each pass the speedway ends up looking like a giant bowl of tire smoke.

Friday was qualifying, choosing the top 32 drivers to battle head-to-head in tandem during Saturday's main event. All images by Matt Ulfelder.
