Global Drivers "Drift" to Road Atlanta for Premier Event:   Drivers from more than a dozen countries will take over Road Atlanta this weekend, competing in one of the region's most popular motorsports events.


Formula DRIFT returns to the Braselton track May 12-13 with Drift Atlanta, the second round on the Formula DRIFT Black Magic Pro Championship presented by BlackVue Dash series.  Drifting is a top motorsport in Japan and has grown in popularity here in the United States, and puts drivers to test as they slide their cars sideways through turns, losing traction on the tires but still controlling the vehicle.  Road Atlanta was the site of the very first Formula DRIFT event back in 2004, and the course remains a favorite for drivers.  New this year, Formula DRIFT is launching an app for fans to track all the action, with features including live scoring alerts, ticket purchasing, and exclusive content.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning at Road Atlanta, getting in on the action ahead of this year's Drift Atlanta!




Burgers With Buck: JCT. Kitchen and Bar is a Ford Fry restaurant, so you already know what to expect from the food and the atmosphere.


It does not disappoint.


It's not a burger joint.  In fact, there's only one on the menu, but it's a good one. The JCT Burger begins with a short rib, chuck, and brisket blended patty on a bun made by local bakery Alon's.  Now this is where it gets really interesting.  It's topped with a heaping helping of their house made bacon jam and whipped blue cheese butter.  The result is wonderful combination of sweet, savory and earthiness that actually melted in my mouth.  


Remember it is called JCT. Kitchen and Bar.  The highly acclaimed bar is located upstairs, but #BurgersWIthBuck did not let that distract us from our mission of celebrating the best burgers in Atlanta and beyond.  Perhaps we'll check out the upstairs bar for a future segment.  #BourbonWithBuck?

And, as always, if you have a favorite burger that you would like to see featured on, tell me about it on or, and don't forget to use the hash tag #BurgersWithBuck and/or #BWB.
