NASA Mid-Atlantic Race Director and Performance Touring Director Xavier Calderon has just been appointed the new National Director for Spec Miata.
 
Calderon started in the NASA HPDE program 13 years ago and his risen through the ranks to earn three regional championships in PTE and a third-
place finish in the 2012 National championship.
He also has instructed for eight years.
 
“I got into cars because I thought women would dig it. So I started drag racing,” Calderon said, adding that he also autocrossed before discovering NASA. “I got into NASA because I wanted to learn how to drive my NSX.”

Calderon served as the race director for the Spec Miata class at the 2015 Eastern States Championships at Virginia International Raceway.
 
Current National Director John Mueller complimented Calderon on how he ran races and the class during the event.
“We were very impressed with how he conducted himself at the Championships,“
Mueller said. “Those events can be pretty stressful and he kept a cool head the entire time. Given what he also has done in the Mid-Atlantic region, we think Xavier is a great choice to take over as National Director of Spec Miata.”
