Braselton, Ga.(September 10,2015)—As the Mazda Road to Indy wraps up their season this weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca it is no surprise to see Skip Barber Racing School alumni challenging for every championship. The USF2000, Pro Mazda and Indy Lights Series all see some of the best talent that has come out of the Skip Barber Racing School program over the last few years.

Looking at the USF2000 field, Jake Eidson sits in second with a shot at the title. Eidson in his sophomore year has impressed many with his multiple Skip Barber Racing Series championships. Aaron Telitz currently sits P3 in the USF2000 championship, Telitz was the 2013 Skip Barber Championship Shootout winner. His season had some bad luck but on any given day he is as fast as anyone. Luke Gabin, Garth Rickards, Nikita Latochkin, and Ayla Agren look to close out successful rookie campaigns as all 4 sit in the top 10 in points going into the finale.

In the Pro Mazda Series, former Karts to Cars Scholarship Shootout participant Neil Alberico is charging hard to win the championship. Alberico is part of what should be a 4 driver battle for the title. Former Skip Barber Master’s Series Champion Bobby Eberle currently leads the standings in the Expert class and looks to hold onto that spot as he closes out a successful season.

Indy Lights sees RC Enerson and Spencer Pigot vying for the title. Pigot a former Skip Barber National Champion has been quite the success story after his National Championship at Skip Barber he also added a USF2000 and Pro Mazda Championship to his resume. Sean Rayhall who has been running a limited season and has won multiple times will be in the mix. Kyle Kaiser who is a former front runner in the Skip Barber West Coast Series will likely show great speed in familiar territory as well. Felix Serralles, Scott Anderson, and Shelby Blackstock are also set to be challenging for race wins in this weekend’s double header.
Additionally Pirelli World Challenge will be on hand this weekend and the GTS class looks to also be quite the show with Skip Barber alumni. Derek Hill will be behind the wheel on a Maserati and Jon Fogarty will be challenging in a Hyundai. Current Skip Barber test driver Kris Wilson will also be running at the front in his Aston Martin. Preston Calvert looks to build on a successful rookie year in the series as well.
