MAY 13-17, 2015 - SKIP BARBER SUMMER SERIES RACE AT ROAD ATLANTA

Dakota Scores Major Points and Two Podiums at Road Atlanta
Round 1 of the Skip Barber Formula 2000 Summer Series took place at the fast and rolling Road Atlanta. Dakota adjusted to the course layout quickly and put down some of the fastest laps during practice sessions. That was immediately followed by setting pole position in both the Saturday and Sunday qualifying sessions earning him 6 additional bonus points. In race one on Saturday Dakota jumped out to a quick lead but fell back to P2 around lap 5 and proceeded to maintain his position finishing in 2nd place on the podium. Sunday’s race was more challenging with 4 cars exchanging positions several times for the lead. Dakota jumped out to the lead on the green flag but fell as far back as 5th place at one point due to the intense drafting between cars. On the white flag lap Dakota had fought back to P1 with one lap to go. Dakota was unable to fend off a charging Jorge Herra who passed Dakota with two turns to go but collected another solid podium finish in P2
