Skip Barber Karting Scholarship Shoot-out

< Back 01/13/2006

Friday, January 13, 2006 A total of 59 karters from North America converged on Sebring International Raceway’s two-mile ”Modified” circuit to vie for more than $100,000 in scholarships to race in the 2006 Skip Barber National Presented by RACER and/or the Skip Barber Regional Race Series. Day one was autocross and skidpad in performance street cars, followed by each driver getting on track in the R/T 2000 for a 25-minute session.
