Presenting The SoCal Regional Champion!
Team ReveD / D-Style
Mikko is one of our local drivers who religiously participates in our competitions and events. He’s been with us since Super-G opened doors 6 years ago! So it’s very fitting with all his hard work and dedication to the hobby to see him as our first SoCal Regional Champion. He battled the best SoCal has to offer, and he came out on top! Mikko has fought hard this entire season and has been consistent in landing podium finishes for every round this year! He has traveled overseas to Japan multiple times to compete at the world renown Yatabe Arena, and has toured many of the world famous drift circuits as a well. In recent years he landed a Team Yokomo Sponsorship and more recently a Team ReveD Sponsorship, this alongside of his Team D-Style he has been a part of for as long as I can remember. We are all proud of his accomplishments and this is just another notch in his belt! Congratulations Mikko!!!
The Top 3 Drivers:
1st – Mikko Yang (Team ReveD / D-Style)
2nd – Manny Campalans (Team Futaba USA / RawFew)
3rd – Shaine Collins (Team D-Style)
These are the Top 3 Drivers SoCal has to offer! Being Top 3 is no easy task, and these 3 worked hard for it! The upcoming Finals promise to be exciting and something not to be missed!!! Keep an eye on these guys! They have shown they have what it takes to step up and not cave to the pressure. Congratulations Mikko, Manny, and Shaine!!!

This weekend was the conclusion of the Super Drift Championship Regionals for SoCal. With COVID upending just about everything in life, it’s been a challenge to keep things straight to say the least. Originally we had 9 rounds scheduled, but after round 2 we had the brakes slammed on us and everything went into lockdown. We had all but lost hope to continue the series, but then suddenly other parts of the nation started to open up and we started to see other regions pick up where they left off and start their regionals again. We didn’t want to disappoint, so we started moving as fast as we could to get our region going again as well.
Due to the changes beyond anyone’s control, we had to make changes to the requirements to qualify for the finals. Most notably, the requirements to qualify for the Finals here at Super-G on October 24, 2020. The new requirements:
1. Champion for your region
2. Podium Finish (1st, 2nd, or 3rd)
3. 50% participation in your region. (Changed from 75%)
THE SUPER DRIFT CHAMPIONSHIP USA FINALS
October 24, 2020
Super-G RC Drift Arena
October 24, 2020 Super-G will be hosting the Super Drift Championship USA Finals here in Baldwin Park, CA.
Due to COVID, we will be hosting a Special Qualifying Round for those who did not meet the minimum requirements to be entered into the Finals. Schedule to be announced at a later date.
Special Qualifying Round:
You will have 2 attempts to achieve a qualifying score to be entered into the Final Competition.
Saturday: (Before Finals qualifying)
You will be given 1 more attempt to achieve a qualifying score to be entered into the Final Competition.
This means, if you wish to participate in the Finals here at Super-G, but did not have a region near by, or did not participate in the required 50% of the regionals, you can still participate by achieving a qualifying score at the event.
