Barrett to Compete in Pacific F2000 Finale in Las Vegas

2006 Formula Russell Champion Pat Barrett will compete in the final two races of the Pacific F2000 Championship Series this weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Barrett previously participated in his first two Pacific F2000 races with Team GFRO in September at Infineon Raceway, located north of San Francisco. He went on to win both days, leading Team GFRO to its first ever one-two finish on Saturday.

Participating in this weekend's Pacific F2000 event left the 17 year old from Los Osos, California with a difficult decision. Barrett originally planned to take part in the Ron Sutton's Winner's Circle Shoot-Out scheduled for October 13-15 in Sacramento but opted instead for the opportunity to participate in the Formula Ford 2000 Zetec race this weekend. "This was a very difficult decision for me to make but I feel that the opportunity to race again with Team GFRO this weekend was really important. I want to carry the momentum that I've built up in the car over the past two months into this weekend and on to the 2007 season."

Barrett currently sits 4th in the Summer Cup points standings, only 19 points behind current leader Chris Spreitzer. "Thanks to my two wins at Infineon Raceway in September, I'm within reach of the Summer Cup title," Says Barrett.

"This will be my first time racing on the road course at Last Vegas Motor Speedway, which I understand is a very technical layout. I'm looking forward to a good finish.

"I would like to thank Geoff Fickling for giving me the opportunity this weekend. We worked extremely well together in our outings at Infineon Raceway and at Road America in Wisconsin last month."
