|Brian in Orange|
On a beautiful weekend in the Palmetto state, Brian Nixon kicked off the NMS season with a big bang on Sunday, taking 5th place overall PAX out of 103 drivers! This was a great turn-out at Darlington for the South Carolina Region of the Sports Car Club of America, and they'll be competing once a month for most of the rest of 2017. NMS co-driver last year Jason Rucker also landed in the top 10, with 10th place on the day in a different car.
Brian and the NMS Miata competed in the Pro class, which features cars from all classes, and attracts the fastest drivers in the region. He placed a solid 4th place in Pro, and is off to a flying start in 2017.
Overall, the Miata gang took 5 of the top 10 places, with our friends Kyle Ray-Smith, Luke O'Hara, and Marty Bull all up there fighting for the win. The autocross crowd is a great group of drivers and friends, and it's great to be competing again, win lose or draw. (although winning is more fun!)
