Formula DRIFT entered Sonoma, CA for Round 6: Point of Impact with Vaughn Gittin, Jr. taking his second victory of the season and increasing his points lead heading into the last round of the season on October 8 to 9 at the Toyota Speedway at Irwindale.

The competition was fierce and made for another exciting event with the drivers putting it all on the line before heading into the Finals.

The Top 4 competition consisted of a battle between current champion Chris Forsberg in his NOS Energy Drink Nissan 350Z Fairlady against two-time Formula DRIFT champion Tanner Foust in his Rockstar Energy Scion TC for third place. Foust took the victory and maintained his third place status overall in the point standings.

The final match-up pitted Vaughn Gittin Jr. in his Monster Energy/Falken Tire Ford Mustang against Ryan Tuerck in the Mobil 1/Maxxis Pontiac Solstice. Gittin edged out Tuerck for his second victory of the season increasing his lead overall in the championship standings with only one event remaining in the season.
