USDrift Round 2; Miro Ovcharik Stops by Wall and Makes Waves.

USDrift returned to Wall Stadium Speedway to continue their season with the second round of the 2015 USDrift PRO/AM Series. This year the event took place the day after Formula DRIFT’s Round 4, allowing driver’s to watch the premier series drivers compete the day prior and on the exact same course. New Jersey’s own Miro Ovcharik in his Falken Tire / MT Fabrication Nissan 240SX took the top honors at the event after qualifying 1st earlier in the day.

Wall Stadium Speedway is situated about 20 minutes away from the Jersey shore and has been hosting drifting events at their track since 2004. This event marked the second consecutive year the USDrift PRO/AM Series has held an event there.

Round 2 got off to a sloppy start due to torrential rainfall all night long that left the infield with about 2-3 feet of water in some spots. Luckily the drains were cleaned out after sunrise and the track only contained a few small puddles by the time practice started. A light mist would continue to fall from the cloud cover until about 1PM, when it finally lifted and the sun was able to come out and dry up the track. As a result, majority of practice was wasted in wet conditions, as the track was almost completely dry for qualifying and perfect for the Top 16 competition.

Twenty-seven drivers were registered to make the event, however the bad weather kept some from attending. At the start of practice, the event would wind up with twenty-two competitors, with some making the trek from as far as Florida. Miro Ovcharik missed Round 1 at VIR back in May, but that didn’t stop him from making a grand entrance at Round 2 by earning the number one qualifying spot and going on to win the event.

Austin Meeks from South Carolina wound up in second place in his V8 powered 1996 Nissan 240SX. Meeks also won the Quickstyle Motorsports Most Impactful Entry during qualifying.

Rounding out the podium was Fred Keogh, from New York in his LS3 powered 350Z who finished up in third after North Carolina native Jonathan Nerren in his LS3 powered 1995 Magnuson Superchargers Nissan 240SX running on Zenna Tires had to bow out due to transmission issues he faced during the Top 4 battle against Meeks.

“Wall Stadium Speedway continued to prove why it is one of the seven stops on the Formula DRIFT schedule. This track is unique and challenging, yet our guys did an amazing job this weekend, especially considering the wet conditions that started the day”, said Brian Eggert, Event Director of USDrift. “The driving keeps getting better here and we can’t wait to come back next year.”

SEMA 2017: Global Media Awards (Top 10)

3SDM: 0.66 Wheel While a large trend in the wheel industry right now is to reimagine certain wheel designs from "back in the day," something that's not often done is reimaging an era, especially an era of motorsport. This is something that 3SDM's 0.66 wheel achieves. Just one look at the inset letters around the face of the wheel, long spokes, integrated concave fan, and the flat lip - all packed into a cast design - is totally reminiscent of turbofan rally wheels from the '80s. With the design coming from a European brand for Euro cars, that makes it…
