Round 3 of the Midwest Drift Union season happened at Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas. The weather was great despite the signature gusty winds of The Great Plains. The skid pad was utilized at the massive complex as MDU staff wanted to set a track that focused more on speed from start to finish as well as door to door tandems. Simply put, the goal was achieved.

Practice went well for all drivers with minimal issues and plenty of solid driving. After qualifying concluded, a great Top 16 was set.
The day’s Number 1 qualifier, Steve Topping, eased his way into the Top 8 by defeating Chance Crooks. MDU’s youngest competitor, David Mesker, faced off against hometown homeboy Mike O’Mara and after going One More Time, Mesker and his 1JZ powere E36 M3 coupe moved on.

With many cars not quite ready yet and others suffering from pesky troubles of insufficient time to test, the field was whittled down to a Top 8 instead of the usual 16 that MDU has done for years prior.
Gateway is a fast course and requires precision and commitment, so that’s exactly what the judges were looking for. Even though the competition wasn’t as full as it usually is, the level of excitement was at an all-time high. Seasoned MDU drivers such as Mike Feiock, Brian Peter, and Nick Thomas were out in full force and clearly focused on the first place trophy.
