Northern Conference, Formula 500
James Weida, of West Lafayette, Ind., was unable to attend the first and last race weekend of the 2013 conference schedule. But, that didn’t stop him from taking home the Northern Conference Formula 500 title behind the wheel of the No. 22 Weida Apartments Scorpion W1. In five races, Weida notched three podiums, including a win from pole at Gingerman Raceway and second-place finishes at Road America and Gingerman. In addition, he started from pole twice.
