Scott Anderson, the 2011 Skip Barber National Champion and MAZDASPEED Motorsports Development scholarship recipient, will continue his open wheel development program as he takes on the next challenge in his racing career. The Colorado native is coming off a stellar 2012 Cooper Tires USF2000 Series presented by Mazda season that saw him net third place in the overall championship on the heels of a late season charge.
Anderson carried that momentum into a recent test with the multi-time Star Mazda championship winning team JDC Motorsports of Lakeville, MN. Now Anderson and JDC are going to campaign the final round of the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear taking place this weekend at Road Atlanta as part of the 2012 Petit Le Mans weekend.
"I'm extremely excited to be racing at Road Atlanta. It's a fantastic opportunity for me to drive a Star Mazda car with JDC Motorsports and get a taste of what the next step is like," comments Anderson. "Regardless of what I'm racing next year I think this will be very valuable. I want to take in as much information as I can and simply learn. While it would be great to do well, and I have every intent to do so, if I can learn and adjust to the differences of the car, a good performance will follow."
