Anderson Closes Championship Gap at Chuckwalla

Lakeville, Conn. (Mar. 1). After the demand for more a new track in the Skip Barber Formula Western Series, Skip Barber Racing School staff and drivers packed up and headed to brave the California wilderness at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in Desert Center, CA. Scott Anderson took home both race wins, shrinking the points gaps between him and Thomas McGregor. McGregor now leads the championship by only five points.

McGregor grabbed both pole positions and set the fastest lap for both races, finishing in the top five for both events. Anderson, Shelby Blackstock and rookie Jake Eidson each finished in the top five for both events as well.
