This week’s Move of the Month relates more to the photographer who captured these images. When the leading driver missed a shift on the front straight on the last lap, the ensuing collision was captured on film by Herb Lopez, who stood his ground even when one of the cars was headed right toward him. Of course, there was a concrete wall between Lopez and the cars, but that’s no guarantee of safety. Way to hang tough, Herb.

It can be difficult to go to another region and do well in a race. Because the COVID-19 pandemic canceled so many races in the Northern California, lots of NASA NorCal racers headed to Southern California to race at Buttonwillow in June, one of whom was Teen Mazda Challenge driver Wyatt Couch. Racing at an unfamiliar track, Couch finished sixth on Saturday, which determined his starting position for the qualifying race on Sunday.

There are a lot of similarities between capitalism and racing. To finish well, you must capitalize on the dynamics of each situation you’re given. NASA Southeast Spec Miata racers Robert McDaniels and Scott Carlisle enjoy a good race between themselves then help each other get through lapped traffic.
