2014 Formula D Round 5 Seattle – OEM Manufacturers Championship [STANDINGS]

Aasbo-Scion-NJ

Combining a top-4 finish from Fredric Aasbo with a top-8 finish from Ken Gushi, Scion jumped Ford in the OEM Manufacturer’s standings, which is turning out to be a more exciting chase than the actual drivers championship. Ford drivers Justin Pawlak (qualified 7th, finished top-8) and Vaughn Gittin Jr (qualified 8th, finished top 32) combined for less than 100 points for the second straight event. Nissan remained in third place behind a podium from Chris Forsberg and a top-32 from Jhonnattan Castro, and Chevy remains in fourth place (Top 16 for Grunewald, Top 32 for McQuarrie). Dodge was the big mover behind Dean Kearney’s first podium finish in Formula D, jumping into sixth position behind Lexus which is remarkable as Dodge only has one car competing in the series while Lexus has three.

Here’s the current OEM Manufacturer’s Championship standings after five of seven rounds:

1. Scion  – 565 points
2. Ford – 534.5 points
3. Nissan – 519.5 points

6. Lexus – 277 points
7. Dodge – 215.5 points
8. Mazda – 124 points
9. Toyota – 86 Points

Ford remains in first place behind a pair of top 16 appearances from Vaughn Gittin Jr and Justin Pawlak, but Scion jumped Nissan into second place behind Fredric Aasbo’s first win and a top 16 appearance from Ryan Tuerck. Nissan’s points were accrued by Chris Forsberg’s second place finish and Jhonnattan Castro’s top-32 finish. BMW broke their tie with Lexus via a pair of top-32 exits combined with high qualifications from both Chelsea Denofa and Michael Essa, while Lexus’s points were accrued by Daigo Saito and Robbie Nishida, who both exited in top-32 and had lower qualifying results than the BMW’s.
