Formula DRIFT Skills Battle Presented By Turn 14 Distribution: Trenton Beechum

The Formula DRIFT organizers recruited nine (9) drivers from its premier PRO Championship to join them for the second annual Skills Battle presented by Turn 14 Distribution. This year's Skills Battle took place at The House of Drift – Irwindale Speedway near Los Angeles – and challenged the teams, drivers and fans to prepare for the start of the new season, which returned to its traditional eight-round national series format.
