2013 NASA PTE National Championship Race Miller Motorsports Park
The Sunday Championship race for PTE at the 2013 NASA Nationals. This
video is from the number 848 Miata driven by Jason Kohler. Started 4th in
class, finished 1st.
Background info for the Thursday and Friday qualifying sessions:
Thursday's qualifying race went well, finished 3rd behind Andrew and
William, but ended up getting moved up to 2nd after one of them dq'd.
Friday didn't go so smoothly - car shut off during qualifying on the first
hot lap. MMP has extremely rough FIA curbing at many of the corner exits.
I got on the curbing, and the vibration caused my battery to shift under
the bracket and short the positive post to the bracket...killed all power
to the car. So, I didn't get a qualifying time and had to start in the
very back...20 positions behind the PTE leader, because the officials chose
to intermix the PTD and PTE grid order for these races. Despite a sub-par
finish in the qual race, I had a great time racing with Brett Westcott!
Thus, with a good finishing position from Thursday and a poor one from
Friday, I started Sunday's Championship race from a mid-pack position of
4th (Unfortunately, William wasn't able to make the Sunday race due to car
trouble). I get a real strong start on the green flag, but my opening gets
blocked, so I tuck in behind Glen McCready, but are stuck with the outside
of T1. A couple corners later in T3, Glen gets hit by another car and is
spun off track. I had lifted to avoid hitting Glen, so now I have to work
a bit to catch back up to the leaders (Andrew, Bruce, Reger, Brett). There
were a couple of out of class cars to get by....dang BMWs - frustrating
when an out of class car that's 3 seconds slower per lap won't let you
by... Eventually Andrew and I get away from Bruce and Reger. We swap the
lead a few times before his motor finally decides to give up. At this
point, I for some reason thought that I was still in second behind the red
miata in front of me, and spend the rest of the race driving as hard as
possible to catch him! Turns out on the cool down lap, I get close enough
to read his miniature class letters and it was Shawn's PTD car....I had
been in 1st the whole time! That's always a nice surprise :)

Great compilation of the coverage team 4R is getting. Tyler Palmer drove an
excellent season and was highly praised and recognized for his driving. The
team was recognized for its drive and perseverance after a motor blew up in
practice that we had a new motor delivered and installed and made the race
finishing first in two races!
