2010 Formula Drift Tandem Battle of the Year – Seattle with Darren McNamara / Tanner Foust

These two guys actually met three times in the 2010 Formula Drift season and each time was quite an amazing battle. The voting was done before Irwindale Speedway for this category or I am pretty sure the battle they had on Saturday night would of been the tandem battle of the year. The award was given to them for this insane performance they had at Evergreen Speedway that was unmatched by all tandem pairs. The guys had some fun on the podium as Darren McNamara poked fun at Tanner Foust before walking away with his award.
