After a few laps, Dai drafted and slingshotted the faster TSX on the oval to get into first.
Dai checked out after that ending up winning by probably half a lap despite being slower down the straights and the oval than some of the other cars.
Dai was on the podium in both drifting and road racing a lot that year. He also won the Formula Drift championship.
In between rounds I took the Dog car out for a Time Attack and finished 2nd in Unlimited FWD to Chris Rado which was a joke. I got stuck in unlimited because of the lexan windows.
Dai also won what was the Dog Cars most epic win at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. We had added a few aero revisions to the car. We added a rear diffuser, closed off some unused bumper vents. We improved the ducting to help the aerodynamics in front of the radiator. This stuff really reduced the car’s drag and added stability. The Dog Car was pretty aerodynamically efficient which helped make up for its relatively low power.
Starting on the pole, Dai had a tough battle with an Ex-World Challange TSX which had way more power.
