NASA Championships presented by Toyo Tires Attracting Top Drivers

Published on August 14, 2014 06:39


SONOMA, Calif., (Aug. 13, 2014)-The National Auto Sport Association's (NASA) ninth annual NASA Championships presented by Toyo Tires Eastern States Championships is gearing up for their weekend at Road Atlanta, Aug. 29-31.
 
The NASA Eastern States Championships are three weeks away. The 2.54-mile, 12-turn undulating Road Atlanta circuit has NASA drivers excited for a high-level of competition with competitors they see on regular weekends and familiar faces from across the country. Over 300 entries have been received so far with additional filings still coming into the office. Drivers that have been a factor in past Championships as well as returning winners crowd the driver lineup for the Eastern States Championship at Road Atlanta. 
 
Kevin Helms is bringing his No. 05 Honda Civic Honda Challenge 1 car with help from sponsors Hondaworks, Carbotech, RLZ Engineering & Tuning and Hasport Motor Mounts, HPD and Ferrea Racing Components. Helms has been runner-up in the Championships and will be looking for the top step at the end of the month.
 
"I've raced at Road Atlanta in 2010 in the ARRC Championship as well as World Challenge in that same year," Helms said. "I qualified for the Championships at Virginia International Raceway and Summit Point in the Mid-Atlantic Region. The Honda Challenge 1 Class is always competitive and everyone steps up their preparation and competitiveness for the Championships. Anyone in the field can win it.  I hope to use my Road Atlanta knowledge to give me that slight edge come the end of the month."
 
Yiannis Tsiounis is the 2012 National Champion in Spec Miata (SM), which took place at Mid-Ohio. He will drive his No. 69 Mazda Miata with sponsorship from YUSHINO (a game of Scrabble with numbers). Tsiounis ran his qualifying races at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Connecticut.
 
"I have raced in two Majors races at Road Atlanta in March of 2013 and 2014," Tsiounis said. "Unfortunately I have not been very lucky there yet. My best finish has been fourth in the STL class, three times, two in 2013 and one in 2014 and I have had several mishaps, including a non-trivial accident in 2014, where I was hit by no less than four cars after someone spun me at the start of the race, in front of 40+ angry bees. There are at least 10 drivers in the SM Class who are extremely good and it can be anyone's race. I have participated in seven NASA races in Spec Miata. My goals for the Eastern Championship is to have fun, keep myself and the car in one piece and perform to the capabilities of the car and WIN!"
 
Ben Lesnak from Brooklyn, New York drove to TTB and TTA time trial national championships in 2011 and 2012. Lesnak is looking forward to the competition at Road Atlanta.
 
"I qualified for the Eastern Championships at New Jersey Motorsports Park and at Road Atlanta," Lesnak said. "I am driving my Corvette C5 with help from AJ Hartman Racing and Mantic Clutch. I am looking forward to racing again at Road Atlanta as I enjoyed driving the track from my qualification races, I also watched the first two Petit Le Mans races there a few years ago. My goals for the Championships are simple, have fun, bring the car back in one piece and win!  The field is full of good cars and drivers so it won't be easy."
 
Will Faules, NASA Championships event manager, likes the way the fields for the Eastern Championship are taking shape.
 
"The fields for the upcoming Eastern Championships are getting bigger by the week," Faules said. "In Spec Miata we are at 40 cars with entries still coming into the office. The always competitive American Iron class is nearing 25 cars. We are also expecting over 20 Porsche 944 competitors.  These great grids are going to make for some exciting racing around Road Atlanta at months end."
 
Road Atlanta is a 2.54-mile, 12-turn undulating road course located in Braselton, Ga., just 50-miles north of Atlanta. Road Atlanta is known as one of the most exciting places to drive a race car. The ultra-fast circuit has only one slow corner, Turn Seven, which leads onto the long back straight. The approach to the fast downhill Turn 12 is blind challenging drivers to carry a lot of speed down the hill that leads to the front straightaway and in to Turn One. The stretch out of Turn One to Turn Five consists of a set of esses and lefts and rights that will reward a good handling car.

The NASA Championships presented by Toyo Tires Western States Championships will take the green flag at Sonoma Raceway, Nov. 7-9.

NASA Championships presented by Toyo Tires Headed for Road Atlanta

Published on August 07, 2014 06:03

SONOMA, Calif., (July 30, 2014) - The National Auto Sport Association's (NASA) ninth annual NASA Championships presented by Toyo Tires is preparing for the first of two nationwide events. The first of the twin bill will be the Eastern States Championships to run at Road Atlanta, Aug. 29-31. Going from a single national championship event to a double, the NASA Western States Championships will take the green flag at Sonoma Raceway, Nov. 7-9.
 
Entries for the NASA Eastern States Championships are flowing into registration. The 2.54-mile, 12-turn undulating Road Atlanta circuit is drawing top competitors from the east, as well as from across the country. So far nearly 300 entries have been received with the larger classes being Spec Miata (SM), Honda Challenge (HC), Spec E30 and American Iron (AI).
 
Brian Fassler is returning to the NASA Championships in his new American Iron Extreme (AIX) Class Ford Mustang. Fassler will be a driver to to watch in what will be one of the weekend's fastest events.
 
"I've only been to Road Atlanta three times," Fassler said. "Once in 2010, in my first year of racing, and twice this year. I enjoy the track and I can't wait to see how the Championships go in a month. My goal for the weekend is to represent my sponsors as well as I can. I wouldn't be able to go to the Championships without them. Secondly, I'm going to try my hardest to win my first Championship next month. I see Chris Griswold being my main competition. He and I battled it out last year at Miller Motorsports Park and I know we've both stepped our games up since last year. It's going to be a hard race with some strategy put into it. 
This will be my fourth attempt at the NASA Championships with some success. I started on pole in 2012 at Mid-Ohio in STR2 and led the first half of the race. I started on pole in AIX last year at Miller (first time there) and reset the track record by over a second. I've finished fourth in AI in 2012 and third in STR1 last year at Miller.  I'm driving my 2014 Ford Mustang with help from Paul's Automotive Engineering, Precision Turbo, Hoosier, Technitron Rotary Table Interfaces, Wiseco Pistons, Ford Racing, JRi Shocks, Cometic Gasket and Hawk Performance."
 
Florida's Alex Bolanos has been in contention in Spec Miata (SM) the last two years and is looking for the overall win at Road Atlanta next month.
 
 "I qualified for the Championships at Sebring by getting the pole, setting fast lap and winning in all four races," Bolanos said. "I am driving my No. 57 Spec Miata sponsored by Momo, Autotechnik, and Apex Alignment. I've raced at Road Atlanta twice a year for the past few seasons. I have over seven podiums and a win in this year's SCCA Major there.  My goal is to win. I was in the hunt in 2011 at Mid-Ohio and had a hub failure and finished a close second in 2012 to Yannis (Tsiounis). I see Yannis and Steyn (Danny) being strong next month and I am sure there will be locals in the hunt as they were at Mid-Ohio.  I was second in TTE in 2008 at the Championships. In 2011 I won one of the qualifying races and had a failure during the race in SM and in 2012 I finished second in SM."
 
Will Faules, NASA Championships event manager, is happy with the level of enthusiasm for the new format with a month to go before racing begins.
 
"We have a strong contingent of drivers from the east as we expected," Faules said. "We also have groups coming to Road Atlanta from as far as Colorado, California and Arizona. The list of competitors is drawing other racers in from across the country. Road Atlanta is a great facility with a lot of paddock room. The track is second-to-none and we are looking forward to some great racing all weekend come August."

Napa Valley, CA - The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) is pleased to introduce the new Spec E46 series. This class will host BMW 3-series platforms from 2001-2006 and cater to those who want close Spec racing utilizing a modern German platform.

Focus will be on moderate chassis tunability using a spec MCS single adjustable shock allowing the opportunity to highlight driver ability while still providing for some adjustability to suit different driving styles. The series will also utilize the venerable Toyo Proxes RR tire providing fast and consistent laps times in a long lasting tire which will minimize operating costs.

The series will enjoy a condensed 2014 schedule with the first exhibition race taking place during the NASA Eastern States Championship event at Road Atlanta, Aug. 29-31. The two remaining races of the season will take place at the Virginia International Raceway before returning to the Road Atlanta facility for the final 2014 event. On the west coast, Spec E46 cars will compete at the NASA Western Championships and the 25 hours of Thunderhill.  A complete schedule for 2015 will be released later this year.
 
The series will boast an impressive list of contingency sponsors allowing racers to subsidize their competition costs.
