Skip Barber IndyCar Academy shootout

K1 Speed Seattle’s own, Javier Cantu-Lucero, recently attended the Skip Barber IndyCar Academy shootout and placed 3rd. Congratulations to Javier!

“My friends and family were actually really supportive of my racing through all of the adversity that I came through as a kid, and racing was a way for me to get around a lot of things that were distracting me,” Cantu-Lucero said. “A lot of kids my age are abusing drugs and alcohol. Racing is a way for me to keep myself away from that and stay focused on what I am passionate about.”

“I think it’s a great way for to progress a young driver like myself to the top of INDYCAR.”

Qualifying for the next Skip Barber Racing School INDYCAR Academy is simple: the finalists have to graduate from one Skip Barber 3-Day Formula Car Racing School and an Advanced 2-Day Racing School in 2013 and apply (see the application).
