NEXEN TIRE MOTORSPORTS CONGRATULATES CHRIS FORSBERG FOR WIN AT ORLANDO
FORMULA DRIFT “SCORCHED”
-- Forsberg Dominates Reigning Champion To Secure First Podium Win Since 2017 – Nexen’s Third Straight Victory --
Motorsports powerhouse and global tire manufacturer of Formula DRIFT Pro 1 Series co-sponsored tire N’Fera SUR4G Nexen Tire Motorsports is proud to congratulate Chris Forsberg on his win at this weekend’s Formula DRIFT Round 2: Scorched. Forsberg, a three-time Formula Drift champion, drove his Nos Energy / Nexen Tire Nissan 370Z to first place, outdriving his opponent and cementing Nexen Tire’s lead and second consecutive win in the Tire Cup Championship.
“Going against last year’s champion was a challenge, but Forsberg knew his Nexen Tire N’Fera SUR4G would give him the edge,” said Paul Jho, motorsport senior manager at Nexen Tire Motorsports. “The N’Fera SUR4G’s proved to provide superior performance and durability with another Formula Drift victory. The Nexen Racing team is ecstatic to bring home a back-to-back victory in 2018, with Forsberg and Fredric Aasbo placing in the top three this weekend.”
While driving to victory, Forsberg enjoyed an edge with his Nexen N’Fera SURG4 considering many drivers using other tires struggled to finish two laps on the track. The Nexen tires proved to have the best performance and durability of all tires at the event in Orlando. The win proved even more satisfying since Forsberg had to overcome adversity with a last-minute engine swap following qualifying on Friday.
The Nexen Racing team performed exceptionally well at this weekend’s event, with four drivers moving on to the great eight, three of whom moved past their opponents to the top four. Aasbo was the top qualifier with a 99-point run on Friday, securing an overall third place finish – his third consecutive podium in Orlando – in his Rockstar Energy Drink / Nexen Tire Toyota Corolla hatchback. He leads the Driver Championship. Ryan Tuerck finished just behind Aasbo, taking fourth place in his Gumout / Nexen Tire Toyota 86. Jhonnattan Castro finished in eighth place, driving his Toyota 86 in a battle against Forsberg.
