jump1December 5, 2016 (Corona, California) – World Champion Drifter and Professional Fun-Haver, Vaughn Gittin Jr., is set to participate at the Time Trials Only event hosted by The Jump Champs on December 17th, taking place at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California. Vaughn, best known for drifting his 950 horsepower Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR is highly experienced in many driving disciplines and is no stranger to off-road. He will be competing in the Time Trials Only event in his Kibbetech-built ‘Ford F-150 Ultimate Fun Haver’ and also in a Tubeworks Edition 2017 Yamaha YXZ 1000R SS UTV.


The Jump Champs is excited to have Vaughn participate, as he is known to be a friendly, approachable, and dynamic personality on and off the racetrack. Other than Vaughn’s full time presence in the Formula Drift Series—where he appears regularly on Formula Drift TV—Vaughn has appeared on many popular television programs including Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory, Ridiculousness, and a selected coach on the NBC Sports program Octane Academy.
