EVENT DETAILS

RESULTS FROM FD PRO QUALIFYING

1.    Kazuya Taguchi (Japan) – ISR UpGarage / GT Radial Scion FRS
2.    Chelsea DeNofa (USA) – Pennzoil / BC Racing Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5-FD
3.    Chris Forsberg (USA) – NOS Energy Drink Nissan Z on GT Radials
 


NOTES

•    The weather was a pleasant mid-70s with a light breeze to clear the tire smoke

•    After the perfect weekend in St Louis, Taguchi again qualified first with a score of 93 points

•    Five drivers scored 90 points, with DeNofa placing second and Forsberg third once the scores were broken down into style, angle and line

•    2022 FD PRO Championship points leader Matt Field (USA) was fourth in the Drift Cave / Falken Tire C6 Corvette and everybody is wondering when he’ll finally get his first win of the season 

•    Most of the top seeds qualified well, but as in St Louis, Aurimas Bakchis (Lithuania) again experienced problems on his first run in the Falken Tire / Feal Suspension Nissan S15 and had to fight through the Knockout Qualifying Format (KQF), which sees the bottom eight drivers run a second time

•    Thirty six drivers attempted to qualify for the Top 32 competition heats, which meant four would be eliminated in KQF. Those included leading Rookie Daniel Stuke (USA), Darren Kelly (New Zealand), Ola Jaeger (Norway) and Trenton Beechum (USA) who all scored insufficient points to continue

•    Top Rookie was Nick Noback (USA) who scored 83 points in the KoruWorks E46 BMW, placing him 24th overall
