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 Spec Miata 03-10-2012 Sears Point (Infineon)
NASA Spec Miata Race at Sears Point (aka Infineon Raceway) on March 3,
2012. The top 10 spots were inverted. I qualified 8th place, started in 3rd
place, and ended up finishing 7th. Lost a bunch of spots at the start when
I had to breathe the throttle going into T1.
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.
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.
Rivers Edge Roadcourse - Brody Goble's Spec Miata
We attended this local event for fun and to cap off a great 2011 season. We
set a new track record our first time racing here in the Spec Miata class.
Here is some footage of Sunday's race win! The other miata is an IP3 car
(different class) but I still wanted to beat him.. Follow my drifting and
road racing via my website and blog at www.brodygoble.com
Thanks to Tracy Beier at R3 Motorsports, Speedware Motorsports and GoPro
Hero HD Cameras, for making the 2011 season super successful! In our first
year moving from go-karts to cars, we managed to qualify for the SCCA
National Runoffs and snag a few wins and more importantly end up 2nd
overall in the SCCA National points in the Northwest Division. Many thanks
to my dad and family/friends that are always there to support me!
PBIR - SCCA Spec Miata Race 2
SCCA (DBLE SARRC) Race Weekend at Palm Beach International Raceway. May
16-18, 2014. SpeedWorks Racing 1995 Miata.
This is Andor Tobelem's 1st race weekend in a closed-wheel car. He
Qualified in 10th place after a good qualifying lap of 1:35.677. The 1995
Spec Miata race car is slightly underpowered compared to the 1999 Spec
Miata's. In the start of the race, he losses up to 5 positions dropping him
down to 15th place and had to race hard and work through traffic to fight
back up to 10th place. After a great battle with #22 John Watson in the
1999 Green and Black Spec Miata, Andor finished in 11th place.
Thank you very much for all the workers and volunteers of SCCA during that
weekend and Thank You very much to the SpeedWorks Racing team.

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.

SCCA Spec Miata Race Thunderhill 4/1/2012
SCCA SFR Spec Miata race at Thunderhill on April 1, 2012. I qualified 10th,
and had a decent start. We played a bit with tire pressures and must have
gone the wrong way, because the car was pretty loose.
I was trail-braking deep into T11 to try and get a run on the 44 car into
T14 when he brake-checked me a bit, and I got sideways trying to avoid him.
Took to the grass and lost a bunch of spots. After that, the car didn't
seem quite as fast.
About 15 minutes in, I started noticing a vibration. Not long after that,
coming through T14, it got a lot worse. Going on to the front straight, the
diff let go and put an end to the day.
KBB Races a Mazda Miata - Part 1: Skip Barber Race School
A few months back Kelley Blue Book got the crazy idea to go spec racing in
a Miata. With a little guidance from some smart folks at Mazda our first
step in preparing for fender-to-fender racing was to send our driver, KBB's
Micah Muzio, to Skip Barber's 3-day Mazda MX-5 Race School. In this, the
first of a 3-part series, Micah learns the ins and outs of driving on a
race track and what it takes to win behind the wheel of Mazda's popular

Midnight Spec Miata Racing at the 2011 25 Hours of Thunderhill - Onboard
This is footage from about 1:30 AM during the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill.
You're riding along in the Premier Auto Service #56 1991 Mazda Miata in the
E3 class with Gregory Evans at the wheel. At this point, we were running
about 10th in E3.
We started the race in 3rd, but we dropped back after having to replace a
tie rod when we had contact with a BMW in the late afternoon.
Unfortunately, our engine blew up with only 1 hour and 30 minutes remaining
in the race.

Hardship during my 3rd SCCA race weekend!
A stretched connecting rod in the engine during practice meant the car
needed to be taken back to Premier Auto Service by owner Ed Railton, who
then worked through the night in order to rebuild the engine and make it
ready to race.
That meant I missed qualifying and had to start in the back for Regional
#5. There were about 60 cars in the race. I'm not sure how many I passed.
My coach, Ric McCormick, was on the radio spotting for me.
Then the 08 car missed a shift. My car has street Exhaust so it's quieter than most of the other
cars. When the 08 missed his shift I thought it was mine. I looked down,
saw that things were fine, and when I looked up I was on a collision course
with the 08. I jinked to the outside, because the right side was filled
with cars (the 08 and the 10). The 08 didn't see me, and when he looked up
from correcting his gearbox, he saw the 10 to his inside. He must have
reacted by steering to the outside slightly, which was enough to punt both
him and I to the outside.
The first hit was very light, and it only put some tire donuts on the door.
But as we spun and I came to a rest, his car hit mine in the right rear,
which bent a couple suspension components. The car didn't track straight
after that and could not corner very well, so I had to retire.
Fortunately the fix was fairly simple (compared to rebuilding an engine)
and I was ready for qualifying in the afternoon, thanks to Ed's hard work.
