Round 1 Formula Drift Long Beach was a hard showing for some top drivers early with Dai Yoshihara getting knocked out in top 32 and Vaughn Gittin Jr. being defeated in the round of 16.
DeatschWerks sponsored driver Kenny Moen took 2nd place in Round 1. He persevered through the competition all the way to the final round. Finally getting defeated by Drift Garage Star Chris Forsberg.
Kenny's 2JZ powered 240sx runs FOUR DW300 fuel pumps and Deatschwerks 1300cc injectors.
Ryan Tuerck's DeatschWerks powered FRS started the season off rough. During the media day for the event Ryan's FRS was ran into by another driver due to mechanical failure of a power steering pump. They limped the car to the shop and quickly repaired the rear end with new body panels. Luckily it was ready to go by Friday's qualifing session. Ryan qualified 11th and was paired up against Alec Hohnadel in the top 32. He beat out Hohnadell to move up to the top 16. In the next round Ryan was out styled by "The King of Long Beach" Justin Pawlak, winner of three Formula Drift Long Beach events. Look out for Ryan in the next event in Atlanta.
