Everything you have heard about Formula Drift Atlanta is true.
Daddy Daycare vs. Everyone. If you want a good look at the grassroots team tandem scene in the USA, come on out to NissanFest. Battle House, Good Vibes, Rivals, Fanboys, Destroy, Villains, Daddy Daycare, and a handful more. Evergreen Speedway may play host to a FD ProAm program, but NissanFest has created an outlet for those who want to pursue another style of drifting.
The 'team' bit is important. 'Tandem' is only half of the competition, and the winning team - Daddy Daycare - demonstrated that winning takes more than just a good tandem run. Each driver must drive to their defined role within the three car train, walking that fine line between an accommodating driving style and an aggressive driving style.
In other words, your ProAm driving style isn't going to directly translate to team tandem.
Congratulations to Eddie Gonzalez, Nate Snyder and Tory Jelenik. Your display of coordination and good driving style was something to behold.
