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.

Bit of a Tank Slapper

NASA Arizona driver Jim Shepard had a front-row seat to a tank slapper as he exited “the bowl” at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in Desert Center, Calif. As the track rises through the left hander out the bowl, grip goes away, as demonstrated by Louis Verloop, the driver in the Miata in front of Shepard. Verloop gathered it up, then demonstrated excellent awareness and didn’t try to re-enter the track too quickly. Well done, guys.
