Event Coverage
D1GP All-Star Exhibition Japan vs. USA, December 16-17, 2006 - Cloudy weather and frigid night drifting didn't stop the crowd at Irwindale Raceway from standing on its feet everytime Vaughn Gittin Jr. devasted whoever lay in his path. Leaving behind an ominous cloud of smoke he took down top opponents one by one, starting with 2005 D1 series leader Yasuyuki Kazama, then Youichi Imamura, Masato Kawabata, and ending with a hard fought struggle against Tatsuya Sakuma and his S15. Driving flawlessly, no one stood a chance in keeping Gittin Jr. and his Team Falken 2005 Mustang from being the first USA driver to be in the finals and win.
