Vaughn Gittin Jr. Burns Rubber in Ford Racing’s ‘2nd Shift Drift’ Clip

Vaughn Gittin Jr. in 2nd Shift Drift

In a new Ford Racing video released this weekend, the car maker gives Formula Drift driver Vaughn Gittin Jr. free reign to burn rubber around its Flat Rock Assembly Plant in his Monster Energy Falken Tire Ford Racing Mustang RTR (all sponsors noted, check!).

Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant has been the source of every Mustang built since 2004, with the plant pushing out an average of 500 Mustangs per shift. A lucky 5 percent of these cars are picked at random for a full test-track evaluation. Gittin speeds, slides and drifts (same thing, I guess) around a number of these lucky cars strategically parked around the parking lot, test track and loading facilities of the plant.

As for the sweet-looking red Mustang that Gittin Jr. brushes against at the 2:22 mark of the video, once you buff out the scratches, I just might be interested in a little scratch n’ dent discount.
