Rising star Dakota Dickerson captured
this year’s coveted 2015 Skip Barber
The 18-year-old from San Diego, Calif.,
competed against a talented roster of racers
including Summer Series champion Timo
Reger and runner-up Chase Owen, Konrad
Czaczyk, Jorge Herrera, and more.
At the conclusion of the three-day
event, Dickerson had one of the most
definitive showings in Shootout history.
He took home first place finishes in all of
the sessions except one. Moreover, he
recorded a flawless score during the
nerve-wracking media interview and a
near-perfect score on his business plan.
Dickerson’s prize for his Shootout win
The 2015 Skip Barber Championship Shootout winner heads to USF2000 in 2016.
Dickerson is just another great
example of why the Skip Barber Racing
School system exists – to find those
talented and passionate enough to make
a career in motorsports.
While the results of the Shootout were
a disappointment for the nine other
drivers, the event taught them significant
life lessons – both on and off the track –
and they will be stronger for the
experience. They, along with a new crop
of talent, will have an opportunity to
compete again next year at Skip Barber
Racing School Race Series events and get
a chance to win valuable scholarship cash
in the 2016 Championship Events.
