We asked our readers who they thought would win top honors at Formula Drift Long Beach, and they were right! Daijiro Yoshihara is really dialed in. He beat every single one of his opponents, including Vaughn Gittin Jr in the Monster Mustang in the final tandem battle.
Usually, Japanese people hold two fingers in the air when they take photos. Not Dai though – he’s only holding one finger up cause today, he overcame all the odds and rose up to number ONE! Congratulations Dai!

In all honesty, he should not have qualified 1st, his run was not the best.
@Alex: who was the top qualifier in your eyes? I thought Dai’s run looked strong, but so did others… But im sure the FD judges see stuff that i don’t see, which is why there judges and im not!
