Vaughn Gittin Jr. has become one of drifting's most iconic figures and is known best by his aggressive, foot to the floor, big smoke driving style.  Being such a fierce competitor, Vaughn is known as the only American to win a D1 Grand Prix event, not once - but twice.  In 2005 Vaughn stunned the world when he won the D1GP USA vs. Japan.   Shortly after, Vaughn brought America the gold once more by winning the D1GP World Championship in 2007.

In 2010, Vaughn earned his first Formula Drift Championship, becoming the second-ever Champion with a strictly-drifting background.   Just a year later Vaughn competed in China's premier drift series, WDS, and took home the Championship.  Last year, Vaughn was shy just one spot of the Championship, taking second place overall.  Overall, he has achieved five wins and multiple podiums throughout his Formula Drift career.

Now, in 2013 Vaughn will be piloting a brand new 2014 Ford Mustang RTR built by Autosport Dynamics and fueled by VP110!   While Vaughn’s number one priority is to chase down the Formula Drift Championship, he will also be taking his global efforts to the next level in 2013 with help from his sponsors such as VP Racing Fuels. Vaughn will once again head to China to compete in the World Drift Series, as well as participate in select competition and demonstration events in Europe.  Just as years past, Vaughn will continue to perform at select demo and experiential events in the USA.  This year he will be heading to select military bases surrounding the Formula Drift Championship on Sundays after competition, to provide demos and ride-alongs for some of America’s finest men and women.

“It is really crazy for me to look at my schedule for this year and realize all of the awesome that is about to go down all over the world behind the wheel of some badass Ford Mustangs,” adds Vaughn.  “While I am pumped on all of the events we have chosen to participate in this year, I am especially excited about the opportunity to go visit some military bases and put smiles on the men and women’s faces that make me living my dream possible!”
