As the cold weather set in on Las Vegas Motor Speedway for this February Round 1 event it looked like Jim Guthrie was going to dominate the weekend taking his Ford Mustang to first place in qualifying without an issue. Jim Guthrie spun however in his tandem battle against Daniel Kuo which was the 16th qualifier.
Tanner Baer impressed us in his Mazda Miata but was knocked out in the Top 4 against Garrett Nikolich. Joe Haven on the other side of the ladder including long time Vegas Drift driver Joshua Guild. Joshua Guild then defeated Tanner to take home third place. Garrett was then given the victory since Joe Haven had a vehicle malfunction just as the final tandem round kicked off. Here is how they finished:
1st- Garrett Nikolich
2nd- Joe Haven
3rd- Tanner Baer
4th- Joshua Guild
