Happy month of June, and a quick shout out Happy Birthday to the Nixon Motor Sports #1 Pit Crew Fan Julie Nixon!
Nixon Motor Sports has announced that June 18th will be the first time in 2016 that will see both NMS founding drivers co-driving the same car. This will mark the third year in a row that the NMS team has competed together on Father's Day Weekend, so remember, you should always let Dad win!
The NMS Miata will be competing with the North Carolina Region of the Sports Car Club of America on June 18th at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point near Havelock NC. While most of the press is predicting that Brian will take the NMS victory in his own car, others have stated that Robert will be able to out-drive the Miata man and take round one in the NMS-Showdown for Bragging Rights 16.

After that Saturday event on neutral ground in North Carolina, the NMS team will be competing again the next day farther north at Joint Base Little Creek in Virginia. This makes for an all military base weekend, one event at a Marine base and the other on a mostly Navy base, so we'll call it a little salute to America! For the Sunday autocross with the Tidewater Sports Car Club, NMS plans on running Brian in the Miata's ES class, while Robert will return to the FIAT in GS class. Cars entered at this event are listed at this link: TSCC LINK
What could be better than two autocross events on a two day weekend? Nothing.
