Ask racers about their bucket list of tracks, and it’s a safe bet Daytona International Speedway is one of them.

“Since we began hosting NASA Championships races
When we finally return to the racetrack, NASA events, as you once knew them, will have changed. Our safety protocols on the racetrack are the finest in the industry, and with the advent of the coronavirus, NASA must rethink the way we conduct our events, for the safety of our drivers, crew, staff and track personnel.

At the 2017 Western States Championships at Thunderhill Raceway, Dave Schotz had been having car trouble throughout the weekend. In fact, it was so bad, he missed the qualifying races on Friday and Saturday. After replacing a lot of parts, he discovered that the EPROM wasn’t fully inserted to the circuit board of the car’s ECU. Once he fixed that, the car ran great, but he still had to start at the rear of the field for the Championships race. What happened next is pretty clear evidence why Schotz has 15 NASA national championships to his name. Enjoy watching his charge to the front.
Dave Schotz earned several NASA championships in his No. 75 C4 Corvette.
