Formula Drift – Streets of Long Beach – Rd. 1 – Qualifying – Top 5

Formula Drift kicks off their 14th year at the infamous Street of Long Beach, as what I call the concrete jungle.

Long Beach is the first event where spectators can see their favorite driver and their new livery, which is always good to see!

Qualifying took place Friday afternoon in the breezy 70 degree Southern California weather, so let’s recap the top 5!
