Dystany Spurlock to compete in 2023 Skip Barber Formula Race SeriesApr 01, 2023
Skip Barber Racing School proudly announces that Dystany Spurlock will compete full-time in the 2023 Skip Barber Formula Race Series season. The Virginia native is a recent Skip Barber graduate as she completed her Skip Barber 3-Day and 2-Day Advanced Racing Schools at Circuit of the Americas.
Spurlock brings a wide variety of experience to her debut season in formula cars, piloting late models, drag motorcycles, and arena cars. She won the 2023 WBR Racer of the Year Award, 2023 Women Who Drive Richmond Award, and finished runner-up in the 2022 drag racing season. When given the opportunity to transfer her skills to the formula car, Spurlock looked no further than Skip Barber Racing School.
“There are so many Skip Barber Racing School alumni that have been extremely successful after graduating,” Spurlock said. “I love the family feeling that Skip Barber offers and the top-notch coaching that they provide. The school sets future drivers up for success in every category of motorsports.”
Spurlock’s short-term racing goal is to continue to learn as much as she can with the hopes of one day being able to compete and win championships in both drag racing and road course racing. In addition, she is launching her own foundation, What’s Your Dystany Foundation, and hopes to be able to assist the next generation of racers.
