Formula Drift: Irwindale Jeff Jones Solidifies he is the Future of Formula Drift
After months of speculation about whether there would even be a 2020 Formula DRIFT season, the teams arrived at The House of Drift – Irwindale Speedway – for the tradition season finale. The high-speed course used for the previous two rounds at Texas Motor Speedway had exacted a heavy toll on minds and machinery, and Irwindale would provide no relief. With its high-speed banking and unforgiving walls, both metal and egos would be dented or demolished before the PRO and PRO2 Champions were crowned.
The final thoughts for the 2020 season go to Formula DRIFT president, Jim Liaw, who told us: “Irwindale never disappoints, even without fans and the added pressure of the double-headers. The teams threw everything into the Finals; there was carnage but it proved the teams were totally committed to finish the season on a high.”
