About the Driver – Jeff Westphal

Driver: Jeff Westphal


Jeff Westphal started his racing career with no prior experience when he got hired at a local indoor go-cart track in 2004.  He got his schooling done at Laguna Seca with Skip Barber Racing Schools in Salinas, California in late 2005. He raced one regional race at Laguna with Skip Barber and scored one second and one third place finish for his car racing debut, only to then race the entire 2006 season with Jim Russell Racing School of Infineon Raceway.  Fast forward to 2011 where Time Attack focus with GST Motorsports switched to new series, Global Time Attack, or GTA. In the 4 events that year, Westphal and GST won overall at 3 and in class at 4, again leaving more broken records in his wake.  At the time of this writing, 2012 seems to be just as promising as Jeff has won 3 out of 3 events so far and has set track records at each event.
