Nick Andries Earns Skip Barber National Win at Road Atlanta
Friday, October 01, 2010 Braselton, GA. (Oct 1). In typical Skip Barber fashion, the final round of the 2010 BFGoodrich/Skip Barber National Presented by Mazda at Road Atlanta proved to be yet another nail biter. Each lap, the young drivers raced incredibly close, constantly trading positions for the lead, with the final positions remaining unknown until the checker flag flew.
Nick Andries started eighth and grabbed the lead in the final turns of the last lap, earning his first win of the season. MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development driver Felix Serralles finished in second and Ashley Freiberg rounded out the podium. Championship winner Spencer Pigot finished fourth and runner up Isaac Lyons finished seventh, masterfully recovering from a spin on the front straight.
Results are unofficial pending routine video review by series officials. For final results, championship standings and full weekend wrap up, visit www.skipbarber.com after the weekend.
Tonight, before traveling home tomorrow, all the drivers of the MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development ladder will be attending an awards banquet to celebrate the season. Drivers from Skip Barber, USF2000 and Star Mazda will all be in attendance. For live pictures and updates visit www.skipbarber.com/SkipBarberNatl or watch live at www.justin.tv/a/mazdausa.
