HOONIGAN Driver Chris Forsberg Wins 2014 Formula Drift Season Title

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2014) - HOONIGAN is proud to extend high fives, fist pumps and the heartiest of congratulations to our own Chris Forsberg for winning the 2014 Formula Drift Championship this past Saturday night at Irwindale Event Center in front of 15,000-plus fans. This season boasted one of the most exciting championship chases in the history of the series. Forsberg, who has driven every round of Formula Drift since its inception 11 years ago, had a record setting year, taking five podiums in a row, and never sitting outside of the top four at each round. 

"It was clear at the start of the season that this Championship belonged to Forsberg," said HOONIGAN Chief Brand Officer, Brian Scotto. "We couldn't be more stoked for him. Despite all the challenges he faced this year, Forsberg never stopped killing it out on the track. He's a true HOONIGAN."

Chris' raw talent and consistent driving style have made him one of the most winning drivers in Formula Drift History.
