Double Round of Three Palms Drift Pro Am [RESULTS]

LuisDiaz
Three Palms Drift finished Rounds Three and Four with two days of intense competition as a double-header on February 21st and 22nd. The weekend enclosed some of the best runs from every driver in the series. Upsets were made, and the points have never been closer for the championship. The amount of devotion each driver put in on both days really showed through as the days went on. Track staff was updated with the addition of Mikey from JimmyUp and Rich DeBerardinis from Slide United Motorsports. As for every 3PDrift event, Steven Purcell was on the microphone informing the crowd of all the action.

FelloAmbivero.E36

The biggest upset of the weekend had to come from Fello Ambivero in the Carlitos Tire E36, who had blown his head gasket coming into the Final Four at Round One. Ambivero had been running his strongest all season, and came into competition sitting pretty with a Number 1 Qualifying Score of 96! Ambivero ended up finishing strong in 4th Place in Round Three and the car sounded like a lawnmower by the end of the day. He was able to source a new head gasket for the E36 and his team was able to get the car back together with no sleep.

KelseyRawlings.Tandem

In the pink Garrett Turbo S14, Florida’s own Kelsey “Drift Chick” Rowlings came hungry for some points in the season. In Round Three, she scored one point lower than Ambivero with a 95. She drove her car harder than ever before, with more power and angle. On her last few runs of the day, we all were able to hear that her clutch was slipping and she was fighting her car more than usual. By the end of the event, her clutch was toast and that meant another night of no sleep for her team, but that wasn’t before she was able to clench a Third Place victory. She and her crew installed the new ACT Clutch on their backs all at night at the track. Luckily, they finished the car right before Pizza Hut closed.
