NASA Spec Miata Race Infineon Raceway 02/12/2012

NASA Spec Miata race at Infineon Raceway on February 12, 2012. Started 11th, finished 9th. A few highlights: 2:38: Had a good run going on the #27 and then had a bit of a "moment" in T10. 3:15: Another small moment in T2, might have been some pickup from the earlier problem. 3:55 Had a run going on the #27 into T7 when the yellow flag comes out. 4:10 And here's the reason for the yellow flag. Check out the tire wall on driver's right and the front of the E30 sitting on driver's left at the end of T8. 4:20 Snookered the #27 on the restart only to lose a place to the #64. 5:20 Outside pass on the #64 in T6 to regain position. 5:50 Passing an E30 that goes just a bit wide on the exit of T6. Had a run going at the finish for 8th place and came up a few feet short.

NASA HPDE 3 @ Infineon Raceway 2/11/2012 - Mustang #770
This was my first trackday of the 2012 season and the first time running in group 3. The car that I am driving is a 1998 Ford Mustang Cobra "FALEEN" #770. It had a suspension overhaul during the winter so I was still trying to re-learn the car. It has a stock 32-valve 4.6L Cobra motor outfitted with Maximum Motorsports suspension components.





PiR SCCA Spec Miata Race - Contact While Passing for Lead
Some contact was made between Matt Schultz and I as I was passing for the lead. I was then shuffled back in the pack as I went out into the grass. Live and learn; scrub those tires after an off-track excursion! We managed to still sneak out a third place result in the race and I went onto finishing second the following day.

14 year old driver 1st place finish at NASA HMS race 3-10-12
Today was a great day at Homestead Miami Speedway for the second race of the second NASA Florida region event. I took the win in the Spec Miata race. I qualified 4th and the top four all were within 1 tenth of a second. The top for were 2 seconds faster then 5th place. Selin Rollan was my drafting partner in qualifyed and the race. We were able to bump draft around the entire banking. At the start I fell to 5th but got to third within the first lap. Me and Selin Rollan teamed up and passed first and then pulled away from the field of 25 very competitive spec miatas with a few national winners in the field. We were hitting speeds of 122 mph while bump drafting compared to the 112 mph without bump drafting. I stayed behind him and pushed him the entire race... until the last lap. I found out earlier in the race I don't have the power to pass him by pulling out of the draft in the banking. The only chance I had was in turn eight, a tight hairpin leading to the backstraight, where my 1.6 liter miata has better launch against his heavier 1.8 liter. So on the last lap in turn eight I drafted as much as I could and pulled out. I got the lead and was able to hold off Selin in NASCAR turns 3 and 4 and take the win. I achieved a time of 1.40.5 which is very quick and would be considered a front runner in a SCCA National. I tested and got times on my Mazda 2. I was able to get a 1.48.2 consistently and that is about 6 seconds off a decent Spec Miata time. Overall a great weekend and now off to Sebring on March 30th. Special thanks to Bob Van Epps my Coach, Race Pack, Rossini racing Engines, Joe Heck Racing, Metro Wrapz





Racing out of class?
NASA Norcal Race Group A. Two clips of my encounter with a SpecE30 in Traffic. Is this out of class racing? What are your thoughts? Comment below. I have posted this to encourage discussion not throw anyone under the bus. I have not talked with the driver involved as of yet. I will when I have a chance.





SCCA Spec Miata Race at Auto Club Speedway
This is my second Spec Miata Race. I started in last place (23rd) after a DNF on Saturday. I finished 7th after passing 16 cars. You will see hand signals between myself and other drivers showing how we work together to catch up to the next group of cars. I can't think of a better way to practice race craft. Thanks to Rush Motorsports for a very capable car.

2013 SCCA Runoffs: Crazy Spec Miata Race with Wreck
Ride onboard with Josh Bilicki during the 50th anniversary SCCA Runoffs held at Road America. After a poor qualifying session, Josh started 39th out of 70+ Spec Miatas. After the first 1/2 lap, Josh moved up 10+ positions, until he ran out of room during a wreck and hit another SM driver. Josh was forced to pit under a full course yellow to take care of the damaged hood. After rejoining the track in 58th position, Josh charged back up the field into his final finishing position, 34th.





This is Spec Miata Racing.wmv
This is how bump drafting should work. Kyle Webb gives me a push past John in the Saturday race at Road Atlanta to take back 3rd place. I felt bad for Kyle because he had a spin after the push. Man this stuff is fun!!!!!





Race car driver heel-toe & footwork - Spec Miata
Click here to see how the race went that weekend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXYq6Yg4Tjs My footwork in the Spec Miata race car at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The car is prepared by Ed Railton and Premier Auto Service. This footage was taken at the end of a long test day, during which I seriously burned off my tires. As a result it was hard to get a 1:51 lap time, which is about 2-3 seconds slower than it should have been. I did mid-1:48s when I got fresher rubber. In the video I'm feathering the throttle more than usual. You'll notice the shift from 2nd to 3rd is slower. The 3rd gear synchro is weak in first generation Miatas, and if you shift too fast it hurts the gear. You'll also notice copious left-foot braking in turns 3 and 10. I start the video during braking for turn 11. I was surprised I could find a spot for the Contour down there, but it's got a lot of mounting options and it was pretty simple to get a good angle. Some quick settings changes on the lap top and it was good to go. I like watching the dirt in the footwell shooting back and forth. With nearly 1.5 G, it's like upending a bucket.





NASA Infineon Group C Race 02/12/2012
NASA Group C race at Infineon Raceway on February 12, 2012. This is a mixed class race with staggered starts. My car is a Spec Miata racing in the PTE class. I was a bit outclassed with my Toyo RA-1s going up against full race slick Hoosiers. Nonetheless, I had a great battle going on with the 64 car for most of the race.
