Sean Rayhall Prepares for 2009 Skip Barber National Championship

Atlanta, GA (January 15, 2008) - Sean Rayhall, who at the young age of thirteen is preparing for his first full season in the Skip Barber National Championship. Last season after competing in a partial season, Sean won at New Jersey Motorsports Park race becoming the youngest driver to win a Skip Barber National and was ranked in the top ten by Eformulacarnews.com for the series.

Testing his new FE car prepared by Comprent Motorsports at Sebring, Sean unofficially got down to a 2:10:25, two seconds faster than the current lap record of 2:12:55. Working with Andrew Davis, driver for the Stevenson Motorsports #57 Pontiac GXP.R in the Grand-AM Rolex Series, Sean is looking forward to the 2009 season and going after the Skip Barber National crown.

"It was such a great time working with Andrew and Kevin Kloeper at Comprent Motorsports," said Rayhall. "Andrew taught me so much in regards to driving. We worked out some problems I was having and improved my skills immensely. Also, Comprent has taught me so much in regards to the handling of the car and the set up. It is great to be able to work with a team who is prepared and can give me a top running car every time we go to the track!"

"I had my first opportunity to work with Sean during a recent test day at Sebring International Raceway," commented Davis. "His natural talent and potential was immediately noticeable as he completed the entire day without putting a wheel wrong, not to mention that all of his laps would have placed the car at the front of an S.C.C.A. national field. I was extremely impressed with Sean's ability to give feedback on the handling characteristics of the car, as well as his willingness to adapt to the changing conditions of the track. These skills are essential to a successful racecar driver, and can take years of experience to master. That being said, the most impressive thing to remember is that Sean is just 13 years old! As he continues to develop as a driver, he is sure to make a significant mark on professional motor sports."

Sean will be continuing his pre season testing at various tracks before the Skip Barber National season kicks off at the 12 Hours of Sebring. Sean would also like to thank his sponsors Wine Country Motorsports, Advanced Environmental, Inc., and 1st Action Services for their continued support.
