Some drivers say that Wall Speedway in New Jersey is the most feared race track in Formula Drift. The track doesn't leave room for error - especially when you are drifting towards a guardrail that has its own gravitational pull. If you make it through that, you're met with a hard transition from the steep bank to the flat track infield, known to stop drivers in their tracks. They don't call Round 4, "The Gauntlet" for no reason.
The track claimed its share of cars this past weekend, such as Jhonnattan Castro and Chelsea DeNofa both hitting the guard rail. Others conquered it - Nitto Racing's Odi Bachkis earned his first ever podium finish with 3rd place and Fredric Aasbo his first ever hard-fought podium 1st. 2nd was filled by Chris Forsberg who continues to be in the lead for Championship points.
