"Irwindale is my favorite event of the year when it comes to the atmosphere at the track. It is a hallowed place, “said Aasbo. “Ever since I was a kid growing up watching Formula Drift from my home in Norway, this has been the event where dreams come true.”
Toyota has now won five Formula DRIFT manufacturer championships (2014-2018).
Ryan Tuerck, who also has had a strong season and currently sits seventh in the standings, was proud to be a part of Toyota’s fifth-straight manufacturer title.
“It's an incredible feeling being part of such a large family that is Toyota Racing, said Tuerck. “Helping clinch Toyota's fifth straight manufacturer's championship is a testament to the dedication of the drivers, teams, cars, and people that make up the massive effort that it takes to accomplish such a goal.”
The four Toyota drivers and Formula DRIFT close out their 2018 season this weekend at Irwindale Speedway Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13. The Round 8 ‘Title Fight’ at Irwindale Speedway will be live streamed on ToyotaRacing.com.
