In May at New Jersey Motorsports Park, 15-year-old Sean Rayhall became the youngest driver to ever win an SCCA Pro Racing event. After this weekend's Pro Formula Enterprises doubleheader sweep at Miller Motorsports Park, SCCA Pro drivers should begin to take notice of the young, budding superstar.
The young Winston, Ga.-driver earned his third- and fourth-consecutive wins June 5-6 on the 2.2-mile east course at Miller Motorsports Park by nearly identical margins. Rayhall won in the No. 11 1st Action Serv/Advanced Environmental Formula Enterprises by 1.881-seconds in Race One, and backed it up with a 1.830-second margin of victory in Race Two on the weekend.
Rayhall earned his fifth and sixth pole positions in as many tries this season, and also turned each race's fastest lap with a 1:30.487 (87.526 mph) on Saturday and a 1:29.967 (88.032 mph) on Sunday.
Scott Rettich, of Oxford, Ohio, entered the weekend as the championship leader and earned a pair of podium finishes, finishing second on Saturday in the No. 17 HIPPI Racing/Springboro Car Wash Formula Enterprises, following that up with a third-place finish on Sunday. Mathew Mair, of Melbourne, Fla., mirrored Rettich's efforts with a third-place followed by a runner-up finish in the No. 33 Mair Racing Formula Enterprises.
Brian Novak (No. 68 AIM Data/NovaRace/Hoosier FE) sat in fourth place at the checkered flag during both races in Utah. Brandon Aleckson (No. 83 Dan's Upholstry/Tico Construction FE) completed the top-five on Saturday, while Wally Osinga (No. 14 Osinga Construction/Hage Tool & Mach FE) grabbed that spot in Race Two.
With the sweep, Rayhall became the Championship leader with 740 points after six of 10 races. Rettich drops to second with 696 points, followed by Mair (629 points), Paul Schneider (522) and Brian Novak (516).
