blog-media A far cry from 2020's mid-pandemic event without fans, the fifth round of the Formula DRIFT Championship in Seattle saw a sold out crowd cheering on Chelsea DeNofa all the way to the top step of the podium. This is Chelsea's third win of the season, moving him to the top of the Championship standings.

With 90 degree heat on Friday and a looming rain storm on Saturday, the TYPE S-partnered Fun Haver team of Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Chelsea DeNofa brought the hard driving and fun all weekend long. While Vaughn Gittin Jr. wasn't able to navigate to the podium, this back-to-back win for the RTR team was a testament to their grit and ability to perform under pressure.

"Formula DRIFT at Monroe Speedway (Seattle) has ALWAYS been full of drama and excitement. With a sell-out crowd in attendance the RTR team brought their 3rd consecutive win at Seattle and both drivers gave some straight up insane battles - with 3 rounds left it's only going to get more exciting,” said Jared Chavez, Sponsorship Marketing and Events Manager, Horizon Brands, LLC (TYPE S).

"Very excited for the team and I to secure back to back wins in Erie and last weekend’s Seattle event. Our BC Racing, Ford Performance Mustang RTR Spec 5D has been setup perfect for every battle this year, giving me as a driver the best opportunity to achieve what we are currently achieving. We will keep this momentum going and fight to keep hold of our #1 spot in the championship,” mentioned Chelsea DeNofa, TYPE S fun-having ambassador and RTR Motorsports Pro Formula DRIFT driver.

The next round of the Formula DRIFT Championship takes place in St. Louis, Missouri, on August 27th/28th.
