Formula DRIFT PRO Driver, Chelsea DeNofa, was given the task to select this year's DRIVER'S CHOICE award winners at Formula DRIFT: St. Louis. Typically, we give out (1) one award in this category, but since this was our Tuning 365 Tour anniversary stop, we decided to give out (2) two awards in this category at the event. For the first award, DeNofa chose Jason Brassard and his 2020 Toyota Supra and had this to say about the build, "I really liked the way it was completed and the overall quality. The Max Orito kit is beautiful!" And for the second award, DeNofa chose Ken Chau's 2003 Mitsubishi Evolution 8 and stated, "I liked the balance of track and street - it has a lot of power!".
With a total of 221 votes, the winner for the PASMAG Tuner Battlegrounds #TBGLIVE award category was Dustin Mazzio with his 1994 Toyota Supra @toyotamota and his 1994 Toyota Supra!
Congratulations to all the award winners at our Tuning 365 Show at Formula DRIFT: St. Louis. We look forward to featuring you all in the print edition of PASMAG.
