NASA Spec Miata Mid-Ohio Recap – Aug 12/13 Races
The NASA Mid-Ohio weekend was a spectacular weekend for Spec Miata racers. The weekend had 28 SM drivers in each race as Gary Schultz piloted his #2 Innovative Endodontics Spec Miata to his 6th and 7th wins of the season. Brian Murdick in the #17 Smoking Tire Spec Miata set the pace all weekend with fastest qualifying and race laps both days with the fastest lap of the weekend being 1:45.592; however he could not convert that speed into a win and even let Greg Stasiowski in the #32 Custom Tool & Grinding Spec Miata slip by on the last lap of Saturdays race to take away second place. Numerous drivers set personal bests this weekend due to Mid Ohio’s wonderful new curbing that lets you use all of the track and more. Hardcharger of the weekend was Alan Faitel who started at the back of the grid on Sunday and drove like mad to finish in 10th position, making up 18 positions during the race. Full race results can be seen on http://www.racenasa.com .
Eric Meyer, who drives the #45 Mad Anthony Brewery Spec Miata, hosted a party Saturday night that was highlighted by a trophy presentation with huge trophy’s for Spec Miata, three $150 gift certificates from The Winning Formula, three $100 gift certificates for Hawk brake pads thru Andrews Racing, and a case of Mad Anthony Brew. Many drivers, including the 1st and 3rd place finishers, showed their in car video from the race via Eric’s projector on the side of his hauler. Mad Anthony Brew provided the beer and everyone had a great time. This Saturday night party has become a staple of the NASA weekends for Spec Miata racers and Eric plans to continue the tradition at NASA races in the foreseeable future. Come out and enjoy the racing and camaraderie that racing Spec Miata with NASA provides.
