The recently-concluded third round of the 2010 Formula DRIFT season at Wall, New Jersey had its fair share of highlight-reel moments, courtesy of some of the best drifters in the world.

As we’ve already mentioned earlier, Daijiro Yoshihara won his second event in a row after also claiming the top step of the podium at Road Atlanta a month ago. Despite his two-win streak, Yoshihara is still in second place in the Pro Championship leader standings, trailing Vaughn Gittin Jr. by 21 points - 291 to 270 . For his part, Gittin has been anything, but inconsistent, scoring podium finishes on all three races including a first place finish in Long Beach, a second place finish in Road Atlanta, and another second last weekend at The Gauntlet.

In this video, we take a look back at Gittin Jr.’s successful weekend during the third round of the Formula DRIFT series and, even if he didn’t win, his consistent placing in the podium should bode well for him this season.
