NASA Selects National Spec Miata Director

The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) is pleased to announce the selection of John Mueller as the National Class Director for the Spec Miata series.

Oct 1st, 2010 (Richmond, CA) -The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) is pleased to announce the selection of John Mueller as the National Class Director for the Spec Miata series.

“John has proven himself in prior leadership positions and is always looking for ways to satisfy the drivers. We are thrilled that he is willing to help grow and foster this great class”, said National Chairman Ryan Flaherty.

John caught the bug to race after driving a Cobra replica in various lap-day organizations. In 2005, John built a Spec Miata and started driving in NASA’s HPDE program. After working his way up the HPDE ladder, John entered his first Spec Miata race in March 2007 at California Speedway and managed to place second in the SoCal SM championship that year.

John said that “My first year of real racing was a culmination of a boyhood dream and an eye-opening realization that to go fast in these little cars is way harder than I realized. The bonus is that I’ve met a lot of wonderful people, which is really the best part about the sport.”

In 2008, John became the Spec Miata class leader for the Southern California Region. That year he drove his first night stints at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill for RJ Racing, where they finished 2nd in class. During the 2009 season, John campaigned his car in the newly created Showroom Stock Miata class (SSM) and placed 4th at the National Championships at Miller Motorsports Park. John is determined to fill the big shoes of our previous Director Jason Holland who did an amazing job and NASA thanks Jason for his years of excellent leadership.
