Late-model Mustang enthusiasts are no strangers to Formula Drift thanks to the in-your-face Mustang drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. Vaughn has been THE face of Ford Performance in the series for many years now and he can be seen at major Mustang events like Mustang Week and more performing drift demos for his fans, a lucky few who get some right seat action at these events.

Every year at SEMA Ford’s outside area, called Ford out Front, features a huge demo area known as the “drift box” where various drivers drift everything from trucks to Superformance Cobras. Vaughn, along with his Formula Drift pal Matt Powers, hooked up a select few fans for drift rides courtesy of Pennzoil, the official oil of Vaughn’s Formula Drift RTR Mustang. We were able to join in the fun thanks to Pennzoil and not only had a blast drifting around in a Mustang RTR Spec 2 with Matt Powers, but unknown to us Vaughn decided to join in the fun with what is called a tandem drift, just inches from our right quarter panel! Peep the video to see for yourself!
