What Would You Do? Part I

Two years out of the driver’s seat is a long time in racing, so it makes sense that a returning driver would be a bit conservative rather than aggressive in Turn 1 and lap one in his first race back. In our first installment of “What Would You Do,” within Move of the Month, watch the video to see how the decision-making turned out.

WERC Wraps up 2020 Season at Buttonwillow Raceway

In a year marred by COVID-related shutdowns in addition to the usual hot-weather break in the late-summer, early-fall racing season in Southern California, 24 WERC racers gathered at Buttonwillow Raceway in October to knock the rust off and slug it out one last time in 2020.
From the comfort of the timing and scoring tower, the action on track looked reasonably under control. The scene out on track was another story. There were offs. There was dust. There were yellows, standing, waving and doubled up with the pace car leading the field.
In ESR, the Team PMG Awareness Porsche 911 was in a dogfight the entire evening with Team Lang Racing Development’s Norma M20 sports racer. Driver Tom Haacker usually iron-mans it through both stints, and drives the whole race, but in October, he turned the car over at the fuel stop to Ross Thompson, who brought home the second stint and

Amazing Turn 1 Pass

It’s still difficult to believe how someone could pull off a pass like this. Well into the braking zone, the No. 45 car was nowhere near alongside car No. 26, essentially trailing and on the outside, when the 45 car turned in hard and sliced right through the apex and found a spot right behind the 38 car, which had been several car lengths ahead. Right at that moment, you can almost hear ESPN sports caster Chris Berman yell, “Bwoop!” After that, things went a bit sideways — literally — and there was significant contact at the entrance to the Esses, which is another story we cover in the Nov. 11 NASA Speed News.

NASA SoCal Gets New Regional Director

The drivers meeting typically is where racers get information on run groups, starting orders and flagging specifics. In October, racers in the NASA SoCal Region also learned that they would be getting a new Regional Director.
Ryan Flaherty has spent two decades as the SoCal Regional Director and NASA National Chairman. He introduced the new Regional Director, Mike Collins, and added that he would be actively assisting in the transition as the 2021 season begins.
“After 20 years of hosting events in SoCal and providing executive leadership at the national level, I felt it was time to focus my attention in one area. This will allow me to concentrate on NASA National business, and keep the SoCal region growing for the next two decades,” Flaherty said. “I think it’s important to note I am not going anywhere, and I’m focused at the national level. Best of all, I will be at the
