Sting Ray Robb Secures His Third Top Five Of The Season, and Bobby Eberle Scores His 11th Top Ten at The Series Finale At Watkins Glen

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

This past weekend World Speed’s Pro Mazda Championship drivers headed to Watkins Glen for the final two rounds of the 2017 championship. The double-header Pro Mazda Championship presented by Cooper Tires event was staged as part of the Verizon IndyCar Series race weekend.

The weekend was cold with a mix of dry and wet conditions which made for some serious strategy questions for all of the drivers.

After an exciting season of road courses, ovals, street courses and rovals Sting Ray Robb finished 6th in points and Bobby Eberle secured 7th. “We are incredibly proud of Bobby and Sting Ray, they set goals and achieved them at each and every event,” stated World Speed President Telo Stewart. “The amount of perseverance and dedication these guys have is contagious, and they fed off each other and really lifted the entire team’s excitement level all season. We’d love to have both of these drivers back with World Speed next season, and we are looking at what opportunities might be open to us for 2018. Of course we could not have had anywhere near such a stellar season if it wasn’t for our WSM crew. These guys work tirelessly, and are the backbone of our effort.The Glen was truly a culmination of the year’s work for the team, and while I think the rain prevented some of it from showing, it really was a great way to close out a great season.”

At the PMC Banquet Eberle was awarded the Hi-Tide Boat Lifts “Kids on Track” Spirit Award. “I just can’t believe it! I had no idea I’d be named the Spirit Award Winner. I’m so honored and stunned. Thank you so very much,” exclaimed a happy and five thousand dollar richer Eberle.
The Pro Mazda Championship presented by Cooper Tires has served as a vital step on the career path of many of today’s top drivers since 1991. Graduates include Verizon IndyCar Series drivers Marco Andretti, Jack Hawksworth, James Hinchcliffe, Sage Karam, Spencer Pigot, Graham Rahal and Tristan Vautier, NASCAR veteran Michael McDowell, and sports car talent Joey Hand amongst many others. The series is expected to announce the 2018 schedule in an upcoming press release, and has already announced the all new 2018 Tatuus PM-18 Pro Mazda racing car earlier this season.
