James French Claims Prototype 1 National Title

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. – A long 21 years after his father earned the crown, James French earned his first SCCA National Championship to cap off the 57th SCCA Runoffs Sunday in its return to his home track, Road America. To build the experience, French’s father Brian joined him on the Prototype 1 podium on Sunday afternoon with a third-place finish of his own. The early caution was caused when Chip Romer spun from second place, trying to chase French down. “We definitely had someone watching out for us on that one,” James French said. Vanacore inherited second place following the caution and knocked out enough speedy laps to hang on for second place in his No. The elder French earned his podium finish after moving around another local driver, Jason Miller, for third place on lap eight.
