PROLINE DRIFT SERIES ROUND 3

Dan Aclaro remains in 1st place after the Proline Drift Series Round 3 concluded over the weekend with Shane Bruce grabbing 2nd place with his latest winning performance. Catch the recap of the event as well as the current standings!

PRESS RELEASE – Guam International Raceway in Yigo was host to Round 3 of the Proline Drifting Championships and Round 8 of the Monster Motocross series.

The Proline Drifting Championships is presented by Monster Energy and Napa Auto Parts / Valvoline with special thanks to IP&E, Outback Steakhouse and AclaroFX for the live streaming with IT&E’s 4GLTE Mifi.

The day started with nice overcast weather for the MX riders. Drifters were in for a change in conditions though. During practice it was dry but before qualifying the track was hit with a light shower and drivers had to adapt quickly. Some surfaces were slick while others gripped, it was definitely going to be a challenge.

As qualifying started, more passing showers came thru but didn’t present too much of a problem until we got into the tandem matches that really showed the effects of Typhoon Soudelor hitting our friends in the CNMI. 8 drivers were in till mechanical issues held female driver Olive Epitacio from competition. Only 7 drivers committed and braved the conditions to see who would be crowned the winner of Round 3 and battling their way for the championship points.

Sports legend Joe Taitano used to run to school at JFK from his Yigo home and back. He continued this routine up to 1979 when he’d run from home to GW gym and back to practice for the South Pacific Games with the national basketball team. Guam went on to win its second straight SPG gold medal.
