The Skip Barber cars arrived at a scorching hot Phoenix Oval round! The guys unloaded their cars and got out on track, some for the very first time and found a driftin' sorta feeling with the skip barber f2000 here at this very unique and fun oval.
Big congratulations go out to Taco-Time Brennan Houran for taking P1 in the qualifier and P1 in the race. There was a lot of aggressive yet fair racing which gave spectators a hell of an awesome time for those that attended this race. The points continue to be very close as we will be headed to Round 5 - Okayama Road Course on Sept 28th! See you all there!!!
Round 4 - Phoenix OVAL
Points after 4 Rounds:
The Legends have reached their final Road Course round before we head to the finale of the championship on a DIRT OVAL!!!
Tsukuba was a blast today with some tricky corners and some mechanical trouble for the #57 driven by Edgar Sanchinelli. Michael Key and Edgar swapped positions and had a few spins during practice, qualifying and the race. Toward the end things were close but with a little luck Edgar held onto the car. It was more or less an exhibition round for Mike and Edgar today.
Join us on the finale as we head to USA Dirt Oval. Next Saturday :)

Congratulations to the man that can adapt on the fly! Jason Bosse takes the win at Concord with a great pace during the race and very nice tire management. Edgar Sanchinelli was close to the win but a late crash with worn tires wound up showing the strategy he chose did not fully pan out. Michael Key received a bonus point by Qualifying P1 but an unlucky pit stop with no tires being swapped due to them misteriously dissapearing from pit lane meant he struggled for the rest of the race. With 2 rounds to go in the series it'll be interesting to see what develops in the road course round and the final on a Dirt Oval!

Wow!!! Just WOW!!! What a day, what a race, what a whole lotta action we saw at Laguna Seca in the Skip Barber Series!
Congratulations for our Winner Jason Bosse! Also a big shout-out to Evan Wood for taking P1 bonus point in the qualifier!
The action was great from the beginning with lotsa surprises in store throughout the whole race. Different pit strategies, mechanical issues for Michael Key before the Qualifying and drivers struggling with the grip on these street tires being abused by the high triple digit temps! Catch the TV Replay down below to see what I mean!!!

See you at Round 4 Phoenix Oval on the 31st of Aug!!!
It was a scorching hot round with track temps hitting 124F in the land of the rising sun! Congrats to Evan Wood for taking the top spot when the checkers flew! We had a driver DSQ'd due to failing to follow start procedures and another car not make it back to the pits after an incident.
See you guys next round, 6 of 8 of our Legends Championship!
Round 5 - Okayama
Points after Round 5:
Good job to the Fritosport Road Team at a tough round on the calendar! TCR drivers Mike Key and E. Sanchinelli picked up some good points in this round before the break in the series until September!
Round 2 saw us visit the Thompson Oval, reminiscent of a "mini-Indy" it brought some good excitement and close racing! The Fritosport drivers of E. Sanchinelli and Michael Key locked out the front row but saw troubles arise during the race.
Big congrats go out to "Taco Time" Brennan Houran and the eSport Racer guys for a great job adapting to the track in a short time. Brennan took the win in a close battle with Mitchell Peake!

Thanks to all the drivers that showed up!!! Remember to keep coming back as we are working toward the $$$ Prize and awards at the end of the season.
Next round will be at Laguna Seca Road Course - Round 3
Round 3 saw a bit lower attendance from the series drivers BUT there was still plenty of exciting action and strategy playing out in this excellent road course!
Temps started climbing up a bit and the sand/dirt that kept creeping up on the track made for a nervous handling car during the race.
Congrats to E. Sanchinelli on hanging on to P1 while Jason Bosse was increasingly closing the gap and Mike Key was getting some really fast laps as well!
