Skip Barber Racing School Travels to Watkins Glen

Rounds 3 & 4 Preview: Skip Barber Racing School 2012 Summer Series Travels to Watkins Glen International Raceway

Braselton, Ga. (May 18, 2012) Skip Barber Racing School will be heading to New York to compete in one of the most legendary tracks in the nation - Watkins Glen International Raceway.  Whether it is  the wooden floors at the Seneca Lodge or the wheels racing around the historic track, individuals know Watkins Glen provides endless excitement. This year promises no less. With many of the minors unable to attend, due to limitation laws in New York, the gentleman drivers are out to prove they are just as competitive - if not more. Greg Strelzoff hopes to increase his lead on the Master Championship while Bryan Hixon hopes to increase his lead in the MAZDASPEED Challenge championship.
