Skip Barber Road America: August 20-23

August 25, 2009
You know the old saying “third time’s a charm” ? When it comes to racing Skip Barber, luck was in the cards for me this weekend. It was my second time racing at Road America and man, what a weekend. We got all of our bad luck out of the way before we even stepped foot onto the track though. Our flight was delayed a couple of hours and me and my dad wound up arriving at 2 A.M. which definitely doesn’t help when I had to wake back up at 6 to get in a car. Not going to lie, the delay was pretty stressful but we finally managed to make it to the hotel to get a few quality hours of much needed sleep.

We got home from the Skip Barber race on Sunday night and went right back to Road America on Wednesday for the WKA Man Cup event. I was glad to see many of my friends who I hadn’t seen since May. My mom and my sister came too so I was glad to have my whole family’s support. The weather was great for racing all weekend long and our team was excited to get going.

Skip Barber Summer Series – Road America

July 06, 2009
During the winter months, I spent some time with my driving coach Steve Welk doing the Skip Barber School. I did a 3-day racing school, an advanced 2-day racing school, and two lapping sessions up at Lime Rock, Connecticut. Since I had never driven an open wheel car before, Steve had a lot to teach me. I had trouble downshifting at first but once he taught me how to left-foot brake, I started to get the hang of it. Steve was very patient with me all winter long because sometimes I was driving like a spaz. But he never gave up and he decided to enter me in my first car race ever! Me, my mom and dad, Steve, his girlfriend Allison, and his family all spent July 4th weekend in Elkhart Lake. We had an awesome time together!
