Andrew Paul Bettridge


Formula Drift rolled into its hometown April 12-13th on the Streets of Long Beach. The day started with several messy crashes leaving parts scattered across the track constantly sending out crews for clean up. Last years Irwindale winner Justin Pawlak “JTP” slammed into the wall during the first round of qualifying sending him back to the pits for his team to quickly rebuild his Falken tires Ford Mustang. The first round of drift competition of 7 competitions concluded locally at Irwindale Speedway. After a busy day of drift competition, the Top 32 was quickly set for the continuous competition the next day.
