Condition in Atlanta were perfect despite rain earlier in the week in the surrounding areas. it was a day for the veterans of the sport with three-time (2015, 2021, 2022) Formula DRIFT Champion Aasbo claimed his first victory since the 2022 Irwindale Final Round where he also secured the Championship. Aasbo and Simen Olsen went down to the wire with a “One More Time” being granted due to the judges not being able to decide on a clear winner. However, on the rerun Olsen suffered from an electrical malfunction that forced him to retire. James Deane finished third which left him in the championship leads after the competition but he only leads Simon Olsen by 2 points heading into round 3.
