Fredric Aasbo Closes the Gap at Formula Drift St. Louis 2018 [Gallery]
Just when we thought that the season was over, with James Deane's name inscribed on the 2018 Championship trophy, Fredric Aasbo threw down a gutsy performance to win at St. Louis and pull within 30 points of stealing the crown. Even though he was helped a bit by Deane's engine blowing up, it doesn't hide the fact that we have a legitimate championship race going into the final two events. Matt Field continued to run strong, finishing second, and Team Nitto driver Chelsea DeNofa took home his first podium of the season, finishing third.
Despite the intense storms on Friday, there were some truly excellent battles, including between Wiecek and Aasbo in the Final 4. We can't wait to see what goes down in Dallas and Irwindale. The fight to the finish is going to be intense. To see all the action from St. Louis, from qualifying to the podium, flip through the gallery above.
