            As the summer was slowly coming to a close, NASA AZ made its final trip down south to the beautiful Inde Motorsports Ranch for another weekend full of friends, great memories, and most important of all, great Racing. With a little over a three-hour drive from the Phoenix area, it was great to see another positive turnout of competitors looking to better their times on a relatively new track to NASA-AZ.  Travel time aside, drivers came in full force ready to enjoy the track and cool weather offered in Wilcox, Arizona.megan-josh

 

            Race rubber was not the only thing heating up the track during this weekend. On October 1st, 2011, Joshua Ray and Megan Parent stood in front of family and friends to take each other’s hand in marriage. For anyone who missed it, Josh proposed to Megan just months ago at our last event at Inde Motorsports Ranch. After Megan excitedly accepted, the two decided what better location to seal the deal. If you did not get a chance to congratulate them over the weekend, have no fear, Josh and Megan are continuous supporters and staff at NASA-AZ events so be sure to look for them at the next event and give them your best wishes. On behalf of NASA-AZ and all its competitors, we wish Joshua and Megan Ray the best of luck in their future together and thank them for sharing their beautiful day with all of us.

 

 

 

                                        

RACE GROUP

 brain-and-mark

            With a combined class sprint race on Saturday, racers were on edge to qualify with the best position possible. As we all know, traffic can often be a deciding factor in a race. That being said, the racers drove hard leading to Bryan McCormick, Mark Alger and CV Wells qualifying in the top three spots overall mixing ST-2 in with SU.  Matt McIntyre followed close behind qualifying 1st in PT-B with Brian Turner qualifying 1st in PT-A.

            Saturday’s race was filled with battles for class and overall leads. Having not qualified, Paul Lynch of Team ArizonaPain.com had his work cut out for him starting at the back of the back. The green flag soon dropped and the long straight away at IMR roared to life. As expected, Paul Lynch quickly worked his way to the front of the pack with a best lap of 1:52.825, stealing the show. Mark Alger and Bryan McCormick refused to be left out, showing some great exhibits of car control going back and forth for second overall. Not only was Mark fighting for his position, massive ABS failures had him doing everything he could to keep from locking up into each corner. After 9 laps and a flat tire, unable to finish, Mark Alger pulled off leaving Bryan McCormick to grab a well-deserved second place overall finish and 1st place in ST-2. CV Wells followporschesed taking 2nd in ST-2 and a respectable 3rd place overall finish. Matt McIntyre and Jeremy Renshaw fought hard in PT-B but in the end, it was another 1st place finish for McIntyre with Renshaw close behind.  No race is complete without the Porsches’ of Brian Turner and John Dowling. Flying around the track, these racers put on a great show for both competitors and Racers alike. In the end Brian Turner took the win for PT-A with John Dowling actually turning the fastest PT-A lap of the race with a 2:02.008, bringing home a 2nd place class finish. The 944 Spec racers came to play on Saturday. Jeff Wojnar took home the class win with Dave Hauck and Steve Marlow falling in just behind him.

            Sunday once again saw split qualifying followed by a combined class sprint race.  After the intense race Saturday, racers were eager to qualify on top. Small Bore set out first in a qualifying race. Just one lap into the race, spectators were able to see racers flying by three cars wide through start finish, keeping just enough rubber on the track to hold traction. A last minute change had big bore set out in a normal qualifying session. Mark Alger qualified in 1st position with a time of 1:53.971. Bryan McCormick followed in a very close 2nd place posting a time of 1:54.028, with CV Wells qualifying 3rd overall.

            The green flag dropped late in the afternoon and as expected, Bryan McCormick and Mark Alger were off to a quick lead with CV Wells sticking right with them. CV Wells great start put him on the inside position heading into turn 3. A slight distraction due to traffic found CV Wells taking an off track excursion after misjudging his braking zone leaving the door open for Bryan McCormick. CV and Bryan went into this race with one of the tightest point’s battles NASA-AZ has seen in years. Because of this, CV Wells fought hard all race to regain his position but fell short. Mark Alger’s weekend was filled with mechanical failure, leaving him only able to complete some fast laps and finally retire from the race after only 4 laps, allowing Bryan McCormick to run away with the show. Brian worked every lap to gap the rest of the pack eventually turning a fast time of 1:54.848, almost 6 seconds faster than any other finishing competitor.  Just to keep things interesting, Leroy Moore up classed his PTC car to the faster ST-2 class. Leroy in the little green machine followed CV Wells closely the entire race and finished just seconds behind. Jeremy Renshaw and Matt McIntyre heard the call for an encore from Saturday and put on another great fight. Despite turning a 2:00.802 during the race, Jeremy Renshaw couldn’t hold off the blue fury of Matt McIntyre who eventually took the PT-B win. Because Saturday was not enough, John Dowling and Brian Turner came out again on Sunday with all cylinders firing. They had a great race for PT-A, however this time it was John Dowling coming across the finish line with the win. Brian Turner did not let off one time as he finished less than 0.5 seconds behind. The 944 Spec racers formed a train early in the race and stayed consistent for the entire session. Sunday was a repeat of Saturday with Jeff Wojnar, Dave Hauck, and Steve Marlow finishing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Just to keep things interesting, Ford Spec Racer Elliott Friereich stuck right with the 944 Spec drivers and Jeff Bawden, who was competing in his first race with NASA-AZ.  Elliott and Jeff saw quite an “epic” battle, racing nose-to- tail all session. Elliott finally made his pass on Jeff only to miss his braking and turn in point in high speed T3 leaving Jeff to regain his position.

Time Trial

 radical

            Time Trial drivers have been waiting months to return to IMR. Following our first time at the track, drivers were eager to break the original records and better their previous times now with more experience and confidence on this relatively new track. Following the results, it would be easy to say the Time Trial drivers met their goals. Over the course of the weekend five new Time Trial Records were set.

            This weekend split the drivers with TT Big bore consisting of TT-A and up, followed by TT-B and down representing small bore. The big bore drivers certainly brought a great showing taking 3 of the 5 new records.  TT-R times were seen spanning over 20 seconds. In the end it was Tage Evanson bringing home a new record of 1:47.070 in the Team ArizonaPain.com Radical. This record was a smash of the previous record by over 12 seconds! TT-U was led by Mark Alger turning a fast time of 1:52.630, missing his own previously set track record by less than a tenth of a second. Overall, Mark had a great weekend working through some hiccups to turn a few very competitive times as usual.

            Bryan McCormick ran some very fast times all weekend in his #727 BMW E36 M3. The McCormick show managed a new TT-S record Saturday with a 1:54.802, followed by an even faster 1:53.774 on Sunday. Bryan then turned the reins of the gold beast to Tage Evanson, once again, who set out to beat the new TT-S track record during a “Sunday drive” and he did just that. Tage Evanson was able to reset the momentary record in TT-S with a 1:53.583. This is a testament to not only the drivers of this car, but also the work of Flatout Motorsports as this car is consistently fast at each event.  Finishing up the Big Bore records was TT-A driver Brian Turner running a 2:00.422 in his UPS Porsche.

             Time Trial small bore saw two new records beginning with Matt McIntyre who bettered his previous record with a 1:57.881. Leroy Moore took the win in TT-C and Robert Rose took the win for TT-D. Scott Phillips came out and set a new TT-E record with a 2:05.812. For those who do not know the young 16 year old Scott, this was his first time in TT running his Spec Miata. To come out and smash a new record at this young age makes Scott a driver to keep an eye out for at future events as this was undoubtedly just the start of such new talent.

  

 

HPDE

                HPDE drivers were out in full force this weekend proving that a little drive won’t stop any of them from getting their track fix. Conversations were had all weekend on the paddock as the HPDE drivers looked for coaching in an attempt to improve their car control and track experience.  It was great to see all the relatively new but returning drivers making it back to NASA-AZ. We love seeing the quick progress these drivers make as they climb through the ranks. Keep your eye out for some moves into not only the higher levels of HPDE, but a select few drivers moving up to stake their claim in Time Trials. Any drivers who are interested in advancing into the next levels of HPDE be sure to hop on the forums and talk with you group leaders before the next event!

 

Time Attack

ums-ta-grid

                UMS Tuning Time Attack Series just keeps growing! With 25 cars registered for this out of town event, it is easy to see this series is here to stay. UMS TA was split up into three run groups, divided by previous run times. Once again, being only the second competition held at this track many new comers were eager to see their lap times and compare against the other competitors.

                In TA-C, it was Jerome Silvers bringing home the gold for Snail Performance and a new TA-C track record running a 1:57.731. This was followed by the consistently fast Russ Whelan in 2nd and Travis Barnes of Snail Performance in 3rd.

                TA-B was taken by UMS Time Attack new comer Jesse Robles who blasted onto the scene at our last event. He clocked in a fast time of 2:01.916 while dueling with his father, Phil Robles, who came in 2nd and Robert Smithson in 3rd.

                TA-A drivers decided to change things up from the usual. Always progressing Stenos Wijaya took his first win in the series running a quick 2:08.884. 2nd was taken by Justin Markiewicz, who is new to TA-A but not the series. 3rd place was David Lutter.

                With a tight point’s race in both TA-A and TA-C, this season is going to come right down to the last event of the year. Be sure to check out the UMS Tuning Time Attack at the next event and any HPDE3 drivers and above, come join the fun!

Who’s Who in NASA: Leroy Moore

leroy


Full Name:
Leroy Moore
 
Where is your Hometown? Phoenix

Favorite Food: Everything that is bad for me.

Favorite Music: Anything with a good beat that I can understand.

Occupation: Owner of Flatout Motorsports

 NASA Run Group: PTC Race Group

 

          Leroy grew up around fast cars, motorcycles and having a dad that was a big time hot rodder. With all this in his life he couldn’t resist the urge to go fast. He stared out racing motorcycles as a kid and continued to race them into his 30’s. In 1987 Leroy wanted to try his luck at the dirt track so he took out his 1977 Mmotorcycleonte Carlo, which sparked his interest to get into track racing. After running a few dirt track events, Leroy went back to racing bikes where he competed in the Whiplash Off-Road Motorcycle Race in 2001. From 2001-2004 he competed in several flat track racing events as well as motorcycle trial events. In 2005 Leroy opened up Flatout Motorsports after working for a local glass company that did glass work for different BMW dealerships. Working for the glass company is how Leroy met a salesman by the name of Karl Muick, who was in need of having a roll cage installed in his E46. Leroy took the job on and also started attending local track events with Karl. This is where Leroy found more people in need of having work done to their cars, which in turn, how Flatout Motorsports was started. After building up several race cars and working track side support for many satisfied customers, Leroy wanted to get back into the racing game. Leroy picked a BMW E30 to build for his track star. After going through the car and getting it race prepped for PTC Race Group, he debuted the car May of this year at a NASA AZ event with a new mean green paint job. Leroy chooses to run with NASA because of the ability to run with different nationwide NASA Regions and also the chance to compete in NASA Nationals Championship events.

 

           Leroy also has a dedicated pit crew: his loving family. They are his wife of 20 years Shirette, 3 children Andrew-23, Audra-22, Adrian-21, a son-in-law Adam, and a beautiful granddaughter Alexus-11mon. Leroy’s family has been very involved and supportive of his racing. They have attended several events with him, even when he was not racing, they were there as track support for customers. Leroy said, “I could not have done it without them! It has brought me a lot of joy having them by my side.” When Leroy isn’t on track he enjoys spending time with his family or hitting up the slopes for a little snow skiing. So, if you guys see the little mean green E30 in the pits stop by and say “hi” to Leroy and his family at the track or if your ever in Tempe stop by the shop. Flatout Motorsports, 2141 S.

June 4-5 Wraps Up

Summer is here, and marks the start of the NASA-AZ summer event format–early to rise, race, and return home before the heat takes over the valley. Why drivers meeting before sunrise? Because RACE CAR! While the lack of sleep might be hard on everyone, it spares us being out in the highest temperatures later in the day. Unlike other club racing organizations, NASA-AZ does a good job at keeping to the condensed schedule (even with track clean up), sending you home in time to relax by the pool.

img_6737-1339941503-l

This time around we ventured to Firebird International Raceway—East Track for a full schedule of racing, Time Trials, HPDE and Time Attack. Track temperatures start out “tolerable” but tend to climb rather quickly, introducing all sorts of challenges as participants make their way around the track.

img_7042-1328898506-l

Despite how uncomfortable the summer can be, NASA-AZ drivers certainly have continued to show their commitment to our region by braving the heat and making every effort to enter the track gates for a very early morning start.
.

Race Group

With a condensed schedule, the racing lineup of sessions had a slight twist to the usual. As we began with qualifying, lap times sorted the field for a qualifying race later in the morning. The heat played games with grip on the track and the Small Bore field found themselves in reversed order more than once, with some great battles amongst drivers. In qualifying, Norm Hamden turned our fastest overall lap but a landscaping venture brought him a consequential DQ, introducing Darren Griffith as our pole sitter, followed by Joe Paluch and Dave Hauck.

img_8090-1344406886-l

With a qualifying race underway, a battle for position began to unfold. The finishing order was established with Jeff Wojnar up at the front of the 944 pack, followed by Dave Hauck and Steve Marlow as our top three. With a bit of drama having taken place during this session, several drivers found themselves with penalties and were consequently sent to the back of the pack.

158

Sunday’s race would be the time and place to sort out unfinished business from Saturday’s results. It was bound to be an exciting start as the fastest qualifiers from Saturday were all in the back. Once the green was revealed, Hamden took every opportunity at the start. Taking the inside of the field, and creating a giant dust cloud in the process, Hamden passed nearly the entire field and with 2 tires off the entire way.

190

With the session over, the dust settled and the checkered flag in the air, Norm Hamden took the lead and finished first, followed by Darren Griffith and Dave Hauck finishing second and third respectively. Our lone PTF driver Paul Seiferth, kept his race clean and turned quality laps throughout the weekend.

img_7321-1339947821-l1

The Big Bore race was host to a lot of action on this small track. Qualifying sorted the field in several respects; not only in terms of lap times but also how those times were effected by continuous changes in grip on the track as the heat began to increase. That did not seem to stop Rich Marziale (in SU) who ran a sub-minute lap placing him as our Big Bore pole sitter, followed by Mark Alger who ran a minute-flat, positioning himself for second in SU.  Next up is CV Wells, who qualified first in his class (ST-2) running a minute-flat. PT-B was led by Matt McIntyre, while PT-A and PT-C were led by John Dowling and Leroy Moore.

With the qualifying race next on the agenda, the field was turned loose with the green flag and drivers sorted themselves into their positions—all while trying their best to turn clean laps–despite the grime and dust. With Alger absent missing from the field, Marziale was sure to lead the pack and continued to do so with a 0:57 as his best in the session. Next to cross the finish line were McCormick and Wells in ST-2, followed by Dalgarn. In PT-B, it was a dual between McIntyre and Renshaw who finished first and second. While Dowling and Moore were the only cars in the PT-A and PT-C classes, they did mingle amongst the PT-B field.

img_8867-1344430025-l

Sunday brought us some very fast and very good racing. Ricky (Boo-Boo) Johnson (ST-1), Dan Maloney (ST-2), and Mark Alger (SU) started the race in the back of the pack—as a result of not running the qualifying race the day before. Mixing it up amongst the PT field, the start immediately presented the higher-powered cars with some traffic to contend with. Johnson was on new slicks, which certainly brought out the best in the car as he navigated through the entire field finishing only second to Alger, who was our overall winner. It was an interesting battle between Alger and Johnson, both turning quick laps during the race — :59.3 and :59.7!

img_9035-1344433277-l

PT-B brought our regular trio of racers to the field, with a battle between McIntyre and Renshaw who maintained their first and second positions, followed by Marty Saltzman in third. In PT-A, John Dowling had the company of Brian Turner. However, Dowling maintained a fair lead from the start, helping him to secure a class win for the day. Last but certainly not least was Leroy Moore in PT-C who mingled yet again with PT-A and PT-B cars and finished a respectable 10th overall.

Time Trials

Even with the Summer heat, our many dedicated Time Trialers hit the track, bringing some close in-class competition.  From TTR to TTE, drivers had their chance to turn some quick times and continue to collect much needed season points.

Starting with our Big Bore Time Trialers, we have Ritch Marziale; who not only turned our fastest laps in Race Group but turned the quickest overall lap in TT with a :57.287—a new TTR track record.  In TTU Mark Alger took center stage with his Saturday win as he turned the quickest lap in his class with a :59.551, followed by Travis Barnes who ran a 1:01.948, and Gary Felton who turned a 1:03.366.

TTS was led by some NASA-AZ regulars, including Pete Creek, Bryan McCormick, and CV Wells—all turning 1-minute flat laps with only a tenth or so apart. Creek led TTS with a 1:00.2, McCormick turned a 1:00.747, and CV Wells an equally quick lap with a 1:00.784!

img_7063-1328939668-l

TTA was a 5-car lineup, led by ITR driver Paul Bloomberg who ran 1:04.093, followed by Justin Markiewicz with a 1:04.539, and in third was Doug Evans who turned a 1:04.759. Matt McIntyre definitely kept the pace despite the summer heat, keeping the lead in TTB by over a second with 1:03.086 as his best for Saturday, followed by Mervin Tan who turned a 1:04.516, then a 1:05.288 by Jeremy Renshaw.

TTC was led by the bright orange Camaro piloted by Dave Schotz, who turned a 1:04.506, securing the win for Saturday. Next up was Phil Robles, who ran a quick 1:04.688, and Eric Dayton with a 1:06.740. In TTD, Robert Rose turned a quick lap his second session of the day, but the 1:06.404 was not to be counted. However, despite the DQ Robert secured his 1st position with his original fastest lap of 1:07.022, followed by Dave McCombs who ran a 1:08.841.

Last but certainly not least was our TTE lineup. Now becoming a TTE regular, Tage Evanson’s white Honda Accord had been recently revamped with the intention to break some E-class track records. Indeed it did—with Evanson turning a very quick 1:06.915, a new track record. TTE’s second place finisher was Marc McCombs who ran a 1:08.264, followed by Eric Jacobsen who turned a 1:11.744.

On Sunday our fastest overall Time Trialer was Mark Alger in TTU, who brought out some quick laps with a :58.566 as his best. Not far behind was Rick Johnson who turned a 59.962 securing second in class, followed by Travis Barnes, who seems to be getting quicker all the time—with a 1:01.097. Bryan McCormick was next up, our third fastest TT driver of the day, who turned a 1:00.471, followed by Pete Creek (less than a tenth away) with a 1:00.532, and then CV Wells who ran a 1:00.749. The TTS field was slightly larger than usual, with our newest car #66 driven by Tage Evanson—while not in our top-three in-class, he managed to turn quality laps despite some mechanical challenges with the car. Brian Turner secured a TTA class win on Sunday, turning a 1:03.581, followed by Doug Evans in second who ran a 1:04.066, and in third place we have Justin Markiewicz who turned a 1:04.769. In the meantime, Matt McIntyre was enjoying his second win of the weekend running a 1:03.015, followed by Chris Wilson who ran a 1:04.273, and in third was Jeremy Renshaw with a 1:04.428.

Dave Schotz was our only new track-record setter on Sunday, changing the par for TTC by turning a 1:03.632, followed by Phil Robles with a 1:04.694, and Eric Dayton who ran a 1:05.911. Another competitor, Joe Catteneo, entered the mix in TTD on Sunday. He was close but not quite quick enough to catch Robert Rose. Turning a 1:06.226, Robert took the TTD win, with Catteneo running a 1:07.746. In third place was Dave McCombs, only a few tenths from Catteneo, turned a 1:07.923. Our TTE trio kept the pace from Saturday. While no new track records were set, Evanson still maintained his class lead—turning a 1:06.981. Marc McCombs picked up the pace, turning a second faster than Saturday, running a 1:07.923, followed by a 1:11.930 turned in by Eric Jacobsen.

HPDE

Share some shade with a stranger and make a new friend–how many times has this happened to you during a NASA weekend? Remember that first “epic chase” on the track? Or the time you boiled your brake fluid and found yourself surrounded by fellow drivers eager to help you with your car? Stories like these bring to light a slew of small yet positive experiences between drivers. This event was no exception. As drivers continue to look out for one another, there were no major incidents this event, and half-dozen drivers graduated from DE2 to DE3. It’s always great to see positive, safe drivers continue to run with us. This is the kind of environment NASA-AZ strives to achieve.

120

This positive environment not only comes from our fellow drivers but also our group leaders and officials. Without them, the HPDE ladder system could not exist, and NASA-AZ’s safety standards could not be upheld. With many familiar faces within our HPDE program, I think it’s safe to say that we’re definitely doing something right!

.
UMS Tuning Time Attack

One thing is for certain, the UMS Tuning Time Attack series is growing–now with a consistent field of nearly 30 cars, it’s the largest turn-out of the series all year. What I like about these sessions is that it not only affords HPDE drivers the opportunity to compete, but also helps set benchmarks for drivers in the same class. As we have seen from previous results, drivers have continued to make strides in their lap times and overall level of competitiveness!

Starting with our fastest class in the UMS Tuning Time Attack series is our TA-C class, with Paul Lynch as our fastest overall driver who ran a 1:01.24. Second in class was Jerome Silvers who ran a 1:01.77, followed by Taylor Wilson in third with a 1:02.154.

img_8408-1344419195-l

Next in TA-B is Phil Robles, who took first in his class with a 1:04.590, a noted success for our underpowered FWD TA-B competitor. Second in class was Justin Markiewicz–only a few tenths behind running a 1:04.803. Chris Wilson took third in TA-B, who ran a 1:05.064.

Next up is our winner for TA-A, Robert Rose, who ran a 1:06.370. Leland Forbes took second in class and, after noticeably shaving off time throughout his efforts in DE4, he turned a very respectable 1:07.286, beating Dave McCombs who was only two-tenths slower running a 1:07.458.

Congratulations to all of our TA participants!

.
Next Event Preview

We have a little bit of a break between now and the next event, which takes us to FIR West August 20-21. Following a similar format to our event at East, our August venue will include a full line up of HPDE, Time Trial, Time Attack, along with practice and qualifying sessions for Race Group on Saturday, with a race on Sunday. For now, get your cars prepared and your calendars marked for this next event, which will be the last of the NASA-AZ Summer series.
