Forrest was stayed true to his earlier runs, giving the judges an awe inspiring wall-to-wall performance against his Top 32 match up Matt Coffman. Forrest received the win and advanced on to Top 16.
Top 16 introductions featured many familiar faces from last years recurring lineup; Forrest was matched up with former Formula Drift champion Michael Essa for his Top 16 battle.
Just like his previous runs, Forrest was dragging his new Super Doof rear bumper and Rays Factory GT wing along the banks of the course, and he was awarded the win over Michael Essa who straightened out on his chase run.
As for his Great 8 matchup, Ken Gushi was not someone to take lightly; he and his Greddy team had been dialing in the FRS for 3 years now and he was a valid adversary.
For his lead run, Forrest was going for the maximum amount of angle on the second wall ride, and his Get Nuts Lab S15 turned just past 90 degrees and the car spun, leaving him with a zero for that run. Not even a clean chase run would allow him to move on; Ken Gushi advanced on to the Final 4.
Both Stance drivers are more than ready for Atlanta; Alec is doing final dial in settings for his new S14 and will without a doubt be a force to be reckoned with come Round 2 of the Formula Drift series at Road Atlanta and Forrest will for sure dominate at the high speed track that suits his style.
