After months of hard work from both Vaughn Gittin Jr and the staff at ASD, we are pleased to present you with the new 2014 Monster Energy Nitto Tire Mustang RTR! We are just 17 days away from the first race of the season, and we are ready to rock! Make sure to stop by the Monster Energy pit this season to get a cold drink and see this beast in person!
We recently finished up a full day test run for the 2013 Ford Mustang we built for Vaughn for the 2013 Formula D season. Here is what he had to say:
“My mind is blown after our first preseason test today. This Mustang RTR that ASD built me is the fastest most fun machine I have EVER driven. Nitto Tire NT05’s get this thing in 3 wheel motion when the ole right foot is down. I am so thankful for the awesome people that make up my team and support me.”
BALTIMORE, Md. (January 8, 2013) – Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. is excited to announce that he has joined forces with Nitto Tire. Fueled by passion and innovation, Nitto Tire is a perfect match for Vaughn and his always forward-thinking team. Vaughn, who is undeniably one of drifting’s most iconic drivers, will represent Nitto Tire and showcase their max-performance tire’s superior performance and capability through competing in the Formula Drift Championship and China’s WDS Series. He will also be performing exhibitions and experiential events all over the world, where many will have the opportunity to ride shotgun in his Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR.
From Vaughn: “I am pumped to be working with Nitto Tire! As I enter this new chapter of my career, it feels great to be aligned with a brand that is committed to winning and progression, just as I am. I have always been focused on working just as hard off the track as I do on it, and Nitto’s innovative marketing efforts and awesome tires will compliment that well. It is very clear that our overall passion and future goals align perfectly, and I could not be happier with what the future has to offer surrounding this partnership.”
