Vancouver native Travis Reeder was crowned season champion of the Formula Drift Pro2 series despite not racing in the final event over the weekend.

Reeder, 25, a graduate of Columbia River High school, failed to qualify for the top 16 bracket on Saturday at Irwindale, Calif.

It was the first time in his drift car racing career he failed to not qualify. However, Reeder hung on to the season points lead to claim the season title.

He finished with 273 points in the four-race season to top North Bend’s Dylan Hughes, who was second overall with 255 points.

Hughes qualified 15th for the final race and had to overcome a crash during practice just to compete in the bracket final. Reeder loaned parts from his car to Hughes to get Reeder going. However, Reeder was eliminated in the first run.

Drifting is a high-skill, high-powered motor sport with an emphasis on car control. In the Formula Drift series, drivers compete in knockout heats on a closed course, sliding sideways in trials judged on speed and style.

Reeder was the series rookie of the year in 2017.
