About Us

Thanks for checking out the NMS blog, just a place to talk cars, autocross, track HPDE, Lucky Dog Racing League, 24 Hours of Lemons races, car shows, and everything else car-related that sounds interesting. We're not a professional race team, so we just want to encourage everyone to have fun with their cars.
