USDrift Rd4 VIR FlimFlam Media lead

USDrift returned to VIRginia International Raceway, the site of where the 2015 season kicked off with, for their fourth and final round of the 2015 season. The event was run in conjunction with the National Auto Sport Association’s (NASA) Eastern Championship Event.

Round 4 would leave only three drivers with a chance to walk away with the 2015 USDrift PRO/AM Series Championship. Austin Meeks did everything in his power to try and take the championship by qualifying first and winning the event, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the lead Concord, NC native Jonathan Nerren had going into the event. Nerren would end up qualifying second and finishing second at Round 4 in his 1995 Magnuson Superchargers Nissan 240SX on Zenna Tires, giving him the Championship by just a mere 21 points over Meeks. Yonkers, NY resident, by way of Ireland, Fred Keogh in his LS3 powered Nissan 350Z on Achilles Radial tires would enter the final round third in points, qualify third, finish the event in third, and end the season third overall in points.

“Forty-five drivers competed in the USDrift PRO/AM Series this season, and the progression majority of these drivers made over the course of the season was astounding” said Michael Schneider, USDrift judge. “I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of those drivers that finished outside the top three weren’t in the top three at the end of the season next year.”

“The 1.1-Mile Patriot Course is a fun and challenging course, so it was only fitting that we return to VIR to finish off the series in order to determine the overall season standings” said Brian Eggert, Event Director of USDrift. “This track has elevation changes, a wall, and fast speeds. All three are things the drivers, judges, and spectators love to experience and enjoy at a drift event.”
