NASA AZ – West Track

Weekend racers hit Wild Horse Pass for September’s local track day event

On the second Saturday in September, NASA AZ put on their monthly track day
at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park. This time, instead of running the East Track,
drivers took to the West Track for some early morning racing. The weather turned out to
be quite mild for the time of year, as it was mostly overcast with temperatures hovering
in the high 80’s. This made for a great day of driving and spectating (oh, and
photography). The turn out for this event was very pleasing. Drivers from all experience
levels showed up to run their stock daily such as WRX’s, Mustangs, Camaros, and even
a Prius, to fully built race cars such as Austin Newmark’s purple Mazda Miata and Ritch
Marziale and his Dodge Viper Competition Coupe. The gates opened at 4am for racers
to begin their registration and tech inspection, with the first group of racers hitting the
track promptly at 6am. This event was part of the condensed summer schedule, NASA
AZ’s way of beating the heat and taking to the track early before the summer sun really
starts to bake. Fortunately, they could have ran all day without any issues from the sun.
Take a look at the days racing in the pictures below! If this interests you and you feel
you have what it takes to hit the track, check out their website and event registration at Be sure to follow NASA AZ on Facebook, Instagram, and their
website for future events and current news. Next month’s event will be the Western
States Championship at Thunderhill Raceway on October 5th – 8th. Meanwhile, the next
Arizona event will take place at Arizona Motorsports Park in Litchfield Park, AZ on
October 28th.
