AND THEN THERE WERE THREE

This is Round Eleven of the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear. The 45 minute race begins at 1:50 pm, Friday. The SPEED Channel will air the race in a 1-hour broadcast at 12 Noon ET Saturday, October 13.

With two races remaining in the 2007 Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear, three drivers are battling for the top spot; Dane Cameron (#19), James Davison (#7) and Ron White (#69).

Cameron, who has won three races, started from the pole five times and finished on the podium four times, needs to finish only 8th or better at Road Atlanta to clinch the title. If he does, he will be the first driver in the Star Mazda series' 17-year history to win the championship in his rookie year.

All the drivers in the Star Mazda Championship have waged a season-long battle for the most coveted prize on the Mazda Motorsports Ladder that reaches all the way from karting to Champ Car; a sponsored season racing in the 2008 Champ Car Atlantic Championship Powered by Mazda.

The Star Mazda Championship is one of the richest, most successful and prolific driver development series in all of auto racing. The combined value of various prizes approaches $1.5 million in value; graduates of the series have gone on to Formula One, Champ Car, the Indy Racing League and the Grand-Am Rolex Series.
