Atlantic Championship front runner, Carl Skerlong will miss the series finale after sustaining a concussion during Tuesday’s promoter test at Road Atlanta. The crash occured in Turn 2 of the 2.54 mile racetrack, located in Braselton, Georgia. The 20 year old Pacific Coast Motorsports driver arrived in Atlanta on Monday holding down fourth place in the overall driver championship, but will now have to watch the final round from the sidelines.

Apparently the doctors have also warned him not to indulge in paddock surfing.

Skerlong was released from the Northeast Georgia Medical Center after receiving a precautionary CT-Scan late Tuesday. Due to certain risks associated with a head trauma, Skerlong will not be cleared to race.
