2010 Season Formula DRIFT Rockstar Energy Scion- Looking Toward Monroe, WA

This season has been a good start for the Rockstar Energy Scion Racing team in Formula D. After three rounds, Tanner Foust is sitting in third place with a weekend of intense racing looming on the horizon in round four in Monroe, WA. Tanner has been performing very well, but it takes more than a good driver for a team to win a championship.

When asked about what challenges the Rockstar Energy Scion Racing Team have faced this season, team owner Stephan Papadakis commented, “We thought last year was very competitive, but this year is even harder. There are 10+ teams/drivers that could win each weekend. It makes for a really exciting event. We love the challenge! Also, we are always working on getting more steering angle. Most factory cars have 35 degrees of steering. We are close to 50 now, but it is hard to control the wheel at that angle.” Patience is a virtue that the Rockstar team is embracing, realizing that championships cannot be won in one event. They’re taking this season one event at a time, focusing on the task at hand, and working together to win a third Formula DRIFT championship for the Rockstar Energy Scion Racing Team.

The competition and air are only getting tenser as the Formula DRIFT championships in Irwindale, CA are quickly approaching. Each weekend will be full of intense, tire spinning, smoky and sideways action. Tanner Foust and the Rockstar Energy Scion team are looking to be strong competitors for the championship, but as Stephan Papadakis said, nothing is set in stone. It’s anyone’s race.
