|Alex Villabrille was immideatly thrown into the battle for 3rd against Dan Brockett. Alex lost his groove, and spun out. Dan earned 3rd place.|
|Dan Brockett, 3rd place.|
|George Kilada would go up against Danny Giraldo in the battle for 1st place. You can see how intense and close these guys are at initiation.|
|George and Danny would end up going over and over about 3 times. George was able to outdrive Danny on the last go round, and set himself in 1st place.|
|After enduring a day of 40 degree temps, 15mph winds, and soaking rain, we got our podium! 1st place – George Kilada, 2nd place – Danny Giraldo, 3rd place – Dan Brockett.|
Do you know what I really enjoy about going to these Pro-Am events? There's a sense of seriousness, but everyone is so laid back and family like… The antics are non stop, and its always an event to look forward to. You get to hang out with a couple of pros that aren't stressed, watch some bad ass Grassroots drifting, and just have a ton of fun.
|If you've been on the internet in the past year, then you've seen the Icon video with “Officer Dan” and the hoodlum motorcycle drifters. The real Dan lives in New Mexico, drifts at amateur events there, and is a Top Drift regular. Dan is lucky to be involved with fellow drifter, Jim Guthrie. The two seemingly travel to drift events together in a plush rig. Lucky!|

|Justin Pawlak and Jim Guthrie are discussing whatever drifters discuss. I would like to see Jim become a great drifter, and return to Formula Drift.|
|Treats, always a big hit at Top Drift. Just Drift staff(ette), Wynonna Lopez, always bakes something for everyone. Like I said, it's a great place to drift. I wonder what she's going to bring to Round 2?|
Top Drift Round 2 will be held on May 27, 2012 on Horsethief Mile at Willow Springs.
