Team GOneppo Racing driver Ryan Bittner gets a little crossed up during the Western Endurance Racing Challenge six-hour event at Utah Motorsports Campus in August, but he stays with it, keeps the nose pointed forward and gets things back in hand. In the end, the team went on to finish second in E2.

NASA Prototype

NASA Great Lakes points leader Barry Brooks is preparing himself and his NP01 for his first Championships event in NASA’s premier prototype racing class.
“This is my rookie year and I’m learning that you can’t prepare enough for a race weekend,” Brooks said. “Every mistake I make, I’ve been jotting down in a notebook. Broken parts without a spare, check. Scramble to fill a forgotten tank before a session, check. Thinking there will be time to do X at

WERC Racers Face Off at Utah Motorsports Campus

The WERC season came with a bit of a twist this season, one that required a commitment from teams if they plan to win the Championship. This year, the 25 Hours of Thunderhill is part of the WERC points-paying races, but in the form of a 12-hour race run concurrently within the 25-hour event.
The Utah six-hour race was the longest race on the calendar, but no more. It’s now part of a 2019 calendar that requires teams to step up their game, and 36 cars lined up on grid in Utah to do just that.
E0

When the green flag flew at Utah Motorsports Campu, Team Strom Motorsports was firmly in the season points lead in the E0 class. Team Strom took wins at Willow Springs, Buttonwillow and the inaugural enduro at Auto Club Speedway in May. And when the checkers flew, the team’s undefeated season was still intact, with just two

Honda Challenge 4 Expands in NASA Northeast

Race class participation numbers have a natural ebb and flow as classes come and go from popularity. Classes can gain numbers as drivers jump from other classes, but some classes swell with fresh blood. In NASA Northeast, six drivers made the jump from HPDE to racing, jump-starting an old class.
Honda Challenge is a popular group in the Northeast, with cars running H1 and H2. Honda Challenge 4 never had a real presence, despite strong fields out West. Neighboring Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic regions had an H4 presence, but they fizzled out around 2010. That drought came to an end in 2017 when a crew of NASA Northeast volunteers started planning their move from HPDE to racing.
H4 Racer Damien Price explained it, “Well, we all wanted to run H2, but we’re broke.”
Guided by the region’s Honda Challenge group leader, Spencer Anderson, they began looking into H4 because “You can cage a

Get to Know the Intricacies of the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course Before the 2019 NASA National Championships

The good news for drivers who have never been to the track — and looking for some course familiarization — is the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is home to the Mid-Ohio School. Attend the school and the instructors will teach you the secrets to this flowing hilly track before the NASA Championships Presented by Toyo Tires.
