Formula Drift: New Jersey FORSBERG AND REEDER HEAT UP!
The most highly anticipated round of the 2020 Formula DRIFT season was undoubtedly the return to Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. The former NHRA drag strip had been transformed into a purpose-built drift arena; the first of its kind in the US and an indication of the growth and influence of Formula DRIFT.
Chris Forsberg is back on the podium with his Nissan 370z on GT Radial Champiro SX2 RS Forsberg had one of the toughest brackets as a path to the final battle. Forsberg’s most memorable battle was as the track was drying against Fredric Aasbo in the Final Four. Forsberg managed to gap the Toyota Supra by 5+ cars at a few points on the track and managed to push out a significant amount of tire smoke in the process while Aasbo looked like he was driving in the rain the whole time. This great performance jumped Chris Forsberg into 10th in the Formula Drift Championship standings.
Something about the bad weather had Travis Reeder running his A+ game during the Saturday main event. Travis Reeder landed in the Great 8 where he faced off against Fredric Aasbo in a solid tandem battle. This was Travis Reeder’s first ever career Great 8 finish and he has been around since 2019. His new BMW build seems to be getting dialed in more as the events and time go past him as well.
