Additionally, Round 2 saw the return of a seasoned driver, yet piloting a new car.
Carlos Cano Estrella, known for his 1UZ AE86 through Season 1, returned to Season 2, Round 2 in a rather modest (in comparison to the other cars present) Toyota Supra, keeping the brand loyalty to Toyota going with a 2JZ-GTE underneath the hood.
The course for Round 2 was an oddity, especially for Irwindale. Due to Formula Drift Atlanta happening the next weekend, it was decided to run a sort of tribute layout to the Road Atlanta course.
This saw the section of the bank before the inner oval only used as lead-up, due to the sharp angle drivers had to take coming off of it.
Following the left hand off the bank, came a long right-hander that would push all the way across the infield until the far inner oval.
The hairpin, or horseshoe, was a right-hander as well, which wrapped around onto itself and saw drivers leaving the track through the way they came.
Following the hairpin was a re-run of the first two corners, albeit now a left-hander followed by a right-hander.
