    Default 2008 NASA National Championship SM Race on TV

    Im sure those of you that race a Miata know of this, and maybe you dont. The 2008 NASA National Championship Spec Miata Race (that took place September 14 2008 at Mid-O) will air on the VERSUS channel this Friday (June 26), at 5 p.m. ET. Figured some, or most of you would want to watch it. Whats pretty cool is that i was there competing in TTA. I feel so fortunate to have competed at Mid-O before they decided to alternate NASAs Nationals between Miller and Mid-O. I must say that Mid-O is the most difficult track i have driven. It was such a major challenge learning that track. Its not long, but it sure is pretty dang technical. Anyways, you can read about the details of the NASA National Championship SM race here:

    I was there pitting for karen in her ffr cobra. The track does have alot of elevation changes. In the rain i lost count how many cars were going off track or sliding in the last turn before the start/finish.

    What really sucks is that i missed all the races on Sunday because we had to leave. We left as that insane amount of wind came through and destroyed the entire track/facility. IIRC it was all due to Hurricane Ike. The wind was out of control.

    I also had to catch a plane before noon, I arrived on thursday. I heard that big wooden shack on the right as you go down to the grid blew off it's foundation. A couple of friends had to park the rigs underneath over passes so they wouldn't be blown over.

    The ENTIRE Mid-O facility was in shambles. Remember that HUGE white tent they had up for the dinner banquet? I dont know exactly how many people ate dinner that night under that tent, but i want to say it was in the thousand range? Anyways, that tent came down. There were so many things flying around. I almost got hit by a porta-potty! I was coming out of the bathrooms. The wind almost knocked me over. I made a dash to our car, and then i saw a porta-potty fly by me.
