Easy Come, Easy Go

The racing gods are fickle beasts. One moment, they smile on you and you pass three cars in one corner. Moments later, their smile turns to a frown and you lose all those spots you picked up, plus one more.
NASA Arizona Spec Miata racer Graham Davies shared this video with Speed News, and it’s something you will watch, and then think to yourself, “Oh, yeah, been there, done that.” Tough break, but one we’ve all probably experienced.

NASA Arizona Super Touring Tackles Chuckwalla Valley Raceway

The third and fourth rounds of the Super Touring Series for NASA Arizona were held at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in February. With warm desert weather, clear skies, and a light friendly breeze, the stage was set for some fast times and great battles. Big fields filled the grid with well over 40 Super Touring racers signing up, including visitors from Spec Corvette and Spec Miata taking advantage of the ST6 supersize option! Super Unlimited and Super Touring 1-3 were paired with ST6, then Super Touring 4 and 5 were paired with Spec Miata for separate races, keeping the car counts reasonable for the 2.66-mile track.
Saturday’s races featured some great battles, with the Super Unlimited folk trading positions right off the bat, and the rest of the field ensuring no position change came easily. In SU, Tom Haacker came out on top for both the class and overall win. Not satisfied

Screaming at Chuckwalla

It is a safe bet that NASA Arizona Regional Director Tage Evanson’s racecar is the only Honda Civic classed in ST2 in any NASA region in the country. We know of no other Civic classed that high in the Super Touring series, and this video shows just how quick it is in Evanson’s hands.
Chuckwalla is a hugely entertaining track, with great flow and lots of high-g-force turns. If you don’t believe us, just watch the dirt on the passenger side floor. It’s almost as good as the g meter in your data system.
Evanson did go on to take the ST2 win in this race, which was a nice follow-up to his second-place finish in ST2 the day before. Enjoy.
