World champion drifter and Professional Fun-Haver, Vaughn Gittin Jr., is best known for his aggressive, foot-to-the-floor, big-smoke driving style from behind the wheel of arguably the most recognizable cars in drifting: the 2023 Monster Energy Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5-D. Vaughn’s success on the track has helped grow the RTR Motorsports team into the world’s premiere drift team competing in the highest level of Formula Drift. Since its inception in 2010 RTR Motorsports has won two Formula Drift championships with Vaughn behind the wheel and grown to a two-car team with the addition of Chelsea DeNofa and Adam LZ.
Vaughn currently races in the Ultra4 Racing 4400 class, an insane blend of short-course and endurance off-road race events that fuses high-speed open desert to technical rocky mountain terrain requiring agile and powerful all-wheel drive and a methodical temperament to navigate the extreme courses designed by mother nature. In 2021 Vaughn won his first 4400 Ultra4 Racing Championship competing in his 2021 Ford Bronco 4400 race truck. This was his first season running the second variation of his famed “Brocky” containing an innovative independent front suspension and Ford 460 cubic-inch tall deck D3 JGRE motor, capable of a naturally aspirated 780hp.
Since the start of his racing career, Chelsea DeNofa has had his hand in several forms of racing. His ability to balance an aggressive style with precise driving techniques have set him apart from his peers in drifting, road racing, and stunt driving. This incredible talent led him to take 2nd in the 2020 Formula Drift Championship and 4th in the 2021 contest. From grassroots events worldwide, to the no-lift entry at Formula Drift, Chelsea's great attitude, dedication to the sport, limit pushing style, and engagement with fans will keep him on the road to victory.
Pushing the performance envelope is a Vaughn Gittein Jr. trademark. He has always looked at each new day as his chance to take life faster, further and crazier. One of drifting’s most iconic figures, Vaughn is a two-time Formula Drift Champion. Off the drift track, he’s a frequent competitor in ULTRA4 racing and the proud owner of RTR Vehicles
