The win came after an battle on the bank with Kearney at the round dubbed "Gauntlet" and we suspect Kearney, was at a distinct advantage in the wet conditions thanks to his home country’s lovely climate. The Irishman started his climb to the final behind the wheel of his Oracle Lighting Dodge Viper by beating Vaughn Gittin in the Air Force Top 32 and things only got better from there. But in the end, Aasbø and his Rockstar Energy Drink/Hankook Tires Scion tC in the GoPro Final Battle.
The struggle for third and fourth positions was fought out between Japans Masashi Yokoi in his DMax Nissan Silvia S15.

Aasbø’s win at the same place he took his very first Formula Drift round victory last year and another solid performance from Tuerck has really tightened up the 2015 FD Pro Championship. Right now just 8 points separate the top three drivers! Ryan Tuerck leads on 275.00, closely followed by Odi Bakchis in second with 274.00 and Aasbø sits in third on 268.00. The pressure will definitely be on for this trio at the fifth round ‘Throwdown’ at Evergreen Speedway in Seattle, Washington, next month.
