(Lakeville, CT) March 21--Skip Barber Racing School introduced a new logo to identify Barber-Champ Car Scholarship drivers today. The logo will be placed on the cockpit sides and noses of current Barber Dodge Pro Series Scholarship drivers Colin Fleming, Scott Poirier, Al Unser, Robbie Montinola, and Burt Frisselle. The logo will also be flown on the Skip Barber Formula Dodge National Championship presented by RACER cars of Karting Scholarship drivers Joe D'Agostino, Phillippe Gelinas, Matt Jaskol, and David Jurca as well as National Championship Scholarship driver Rafael Matos.

"The new logo is an exciting combination of the brand identities of Champ Car and Skip Barber Racing," said George Tamayo, Director of Marketing for Skip Barber Racing. "We at Skip Barber and Champ Car are enormously proud of the Scholarship System that every year affords young drivers an opportunity to climb the ladder. This logo will identify those that are climbing it today as well as those at the top who have benefited from it. We hope that they will wear it with the same pride we have of them."

The $1 Million Barber-Champ Car Scholarship program works to aid talented drivers in their quest to move up the Champ Car Ladder System up into the Champ Car world Series from the Stars of Tomorrow karting program, through the Formula Dodge National Championship presented by RACER, into the Barber Dodge Pro Series, and up to the Toyota Atlantics ranks. Every year, more than 45 drivers benefit from the system.

Former Scholarship drivers including 2002 Barber Dodge Pro Series Champion and current Toyota Atlantic driver A.J. Allmendinger as well as Ryan Hunter-Reay, who races in the Champ Car World Series, will also be integrating a version of the logo into their race uniforms.
