Everything You Need to Know About Formula D Round 5

As the weekend approaches, Mishimoto would like to provide you with complete information on the upcoming event taking place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Formula D Round 5: After Dark will provide fans with tons of high-speed excitement, as the drivers drift their way around one of the fastest drift circuits in the world. In an action packed two-day event, fans will be able to watch Formula D professionals and the Formula D ProAm amateur competitors with a great view from their grandstand seating. A complete list of events is available below.

This year, Formula Drift and Retaks have partnered up to present a contest for this year's "Most Insane Entry." There will be a 30 minute period after the top 32 qualifying rounds that fans will have the chance to vote for the driver who had the most insane entry by texting RETAKS with the name or number of their favorite driver. For example, if you think Chris Forsberg had the best entry, you would text "Retaks 64" or "Retaks Forsberg." Sounds easy enough, right? The driver with the most votes will receive a cash prize and gear from Retaks.
