Jake Eidson wrapped up his third consecutive Skip Barber Racing Series Championship last weekend at Sebring International Raceway, concluding the season with 12 podiums and five-straight victories.
“I think most of it is just applying everything I’ve learned the year before and the year before and the year before,” Eidson said during his acceptance speech at the year-end banquet. “All that knowledge is priceless. The experience and all the help the Skip Barber guys have given is what makes this all possible.”
Aaron Telitz finished second in the championship, just 13 points shy of Eidson’s 338-point total. Skylar Robinson was third with 307, earning Rookie of the Year honors. Adrian Starrantino (300) was fourth with Jose Armida (295) rounding out the top-five in his first year of competition. Gus Doppes was the “Most Improved” driver of the season.
The top-five drivers in the championship qualified for the 2013 Skip Barber Race Series Championship Shootout, earning the chance to secure a $200,000 MAZDASPEED Driver Development scholarship for the 2014 USF2000 Series.
