James please don't leave us as we as a family will never leave you. The memory of your son will live on thru us the spec miata family. Sorry it took me this long too respond I read your post and have been crying for the last countless hours. Before reading your post I foolishly thought I had it bad. Please accept my condolences for your loss however useless they are. I have 2 children and can not even begin to imagine your pain. I've got nothing too say too ease your pain I am sure there are no words or actions that could.

My small contribution/thought:

 

I'd not met Nova or Family but, I was reflecting on my drive home last night from a NASA event at Autobahn Country Club how the young SM drivers are some of the most mature, well spoken, intelligent, thoughtful, polite, confident, balanced, focused, and motivated PEOPLE i've met in this world of any age, much less among young adults and teenagers.   Motorsports and the SM community specifically really seems to be a place where young people gain experience that resonate throughout their lives. From afar, that sure seems to have been true in this case as well, as he has certainly seems to have made the same kind impression on those who met him.

 

My condolences.

Just to let everyone know, thanks to Brad Green for allowing us to take his number for the runoffs  Joey Jordan will be number 17 at the runoffs in honor of his friend Nova Brown, fellow Teen Mazda Challenge driver.  I asked James his Dad if it would be ok and he was enthusiastic about it. We will continue to honor him and his family ...

I owe Brad and the Jordans a great debt of gratitude. Our family is honored by Joey running his number, Nova would have approved.

 

Thank you Brad for doing this.

 

I hadn't logged on since my last post and oddly I did today. I am going out to Buttonwillow in two weeks. They are doing a memorial for Nova. It is going to be hard for me to drive his car for the lap. But what I do know is that all of you have been in my thoughts. My family now. I miss all of you..........I miss Nova.
