April 10, 2011
Fort Collins, Colo. – With a win and a second place finish at the season finale at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca the first weekend in April, Colorado driver Scott Anderson clinched the 2010-2011 Skip Barber Western Race Series championship. Anderson earned the title on the strength of four wins and 10 podium finishes during the 12 race season, including wins at Chuckwalla Raceway (Calif.) and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (Calif.) on his way to an 11-point advantage in the final standings over Thomas McGregor.
“Winning my first Skip Barber championship is a great accomplishment, especially since I raced against some of the drivers I race against in the Skip Barber National Series”, noted Anderson. “I really want to thank my parents and the people at Skip Barber Racing School for providing all of us with competitive cars all season long.”
With the championship under his belt, Anderson turns his attention back to the BFGoodrich/Skip Barber National Presented by Mazda, where he sits sixth in points after two of 16 rounds of the championship. The Skip Barber National Series next visits Virginia International Raceway April 30-May 1 with the Skip Barber Summer Race Series for Rounds Three and Four of the 2011 season.
