Crew chief and owner of the Need for Speed tC and Papadakis Racing, Stephen Papadakis, opens Episode 4 of Driven to Drift Season 3. Stephen is a lifelong motorsports enthusiast and has plenty of interesting memories and insights to share regarding the history of Drift.
New Jersey’s Wall Speedway is a track that has made enemies of many of the drivers in the Formula Drift series. Ken Gushi is no exception. He has visited the track for a number of years, and he does little to hide his disdain for the Speedway in Episode 4. Fredric Aasbo, on the other hand, finds the long, aged track to be an exciting and fun challenge after his first visit to New Jersey.
The Scion tC drivers drew very tough competition coming out of the qualifying round. Fredric was pitted against #2 ranked Darren McNamera, who edged Fredric out in a close race. Ken found himself in a similar situation, as he was matched up with #1 ranked Justin Pawlak in the round of 16.
Round 5 sees the drivers back to the west coast for a trip to Evergreen Speedway near Seattle, Washington. Stay tuned!
