The June 23 and 24 event at Buttonwillow Raceway Park is a crossover race for Spec Miata and Spec E30 in which drivers from Northern California will earn regional points while battling drivers from Southern California. That means big fields and lots of competition.

The event will be highlighted by a comprehensive media package by GoRacingTV.com, which will cover the Spec Miata and Spec E30 races. Not only will GoRacingTV.com have five cameras around the track to capture the action, but it also will install more than 15 GoPro cameras to capture the in-car excitement. In addition, GoRacingTV.com will be in the pits conducting vignette interviews before and after the races.

What’s more, there are cash and prizes up for grabs. First place winners in Spec Miata and Spec E30 will win $500 each in King’s Cash sponsored by TrackHQ.com. NASA also will award a carbon-fiber crew headset from Sampson Communications to the hard charger, and there will be even more prizes up for grabs from Mothers Waxes and Polishes and more.

Weekend video vignettes can be seen during the event weekend on GoRacingTV.com and on their mobile iPhone or Android App. The half-hour summary show also will be available on the GoRacingTV.com and through their App, a week following the races.

“I had the opportunity give professional level exposure to our drivers,” said NASA national chairman Ryan Flaherty, “and since these classes have been steadily growing, I wanted to showcase the camaraderie, competition, driving talent, and overall fun that so many of our racers have at NASA events.”

With 56 Spec miata's running this last weekend at MRLS and 23 running at Fontana for a total of 79 spec miata's run in California June 9,10th, I know the cars are here, what do we need to do to get them all out to play?

We are just one of many vendors supplying (a $200) awards to both the E30 BMW guys and the SM field, I would hope that the #s would be in the 30's for sure.

Looking forward to a great turn out, Cash Money and prizes are all on the line... If I still had the SM, it would be a no brain-er!

Several NorCal folks are already confirmed. I don't even have a sorted car, but I'll be there!!! I'll cross post in the SCCA forum. We have to get a bigger field, as there is great media coverage, big prizes and fun events at the track the whole weekend.

I'm with you Shawn !

Weekend-Racer.com is sponsoring the 3rd place award ($150 site credit) for both SM & SE30 too... With media coverage, Toyo Buck$ and lotts'a dolla-dolla-bills being up for grabs the filed size should be epic.

Thanks,
John Mueller
