For the second consecutive week, US driver Justin Pawlak is the winner at Formula Drift. On Saturday, he captured a win at the Road to the Championship event at Road Atlanta in South Hall. He survived a battle in the final against Fredric Aasbo to win the event and the 100 points to the victor, one month after winning the season opener at The Streets of Long Beach.

In the consolation round, it was a win for Daigo Saito over Walker Wilkerson.

Pawlak had to win four matches to make it into the finals. In the standings, Pawlak currently sits first with 200 points, while Saito is in second (78) and Aasbo is third (88).

The Formula Drift season continues with the Invasion competition on June 1 in Palm Beach, Fla.
