Heading into its first season with Formula Drift legend Vaughn Gittin Jr. sliding out of the driver seat and into the team owner‘s role, there is a new driver in the Mustang RTR Drift Team stable. The former Formula D rookie of the year, Adam LZ joins forces with Chelsea Denofa in a formidable pairing.
“I have an unwavering belief to always surrounded myself with the best ingredients to strive for success. Bringing Adam to our team is something I am personally very excited about and will without a doubt be a large part of RTR’s evolution into the future as he is the full package on and off the track,” Gittin said.“We have the type of opportunity that most only dream of, made possible by AutoZone and the best performing automotive products in the world. We are grateful and Ready-To-Rock the 2022 FD Season!”
Recently Denofa revealed his Mustang’s new livery, so it was naturally LZ’s turn to showoff his new stallion for the 2022 season. With bright colors that fade from yellow in the front to ebony in the rear, the new livery highlights a litany of sponsors —including AutoZone, Pennzoil, TYPE S, NGK/NTK, and OPTIMA Batteries —that support the team this season.
“I’m excited to be partnering with RTR this year, and having the confidence of one of the most competitive cars and also having a well-oiled machine of a team of seasoned experts,” LZ said. “This opportunity would not be possible without the support of AutoZone and its superior brand of products in my racecar. I can'twait to put on a show for them and all of my fans!”
