Final race of the NASA Utah 2013 Championship. I only needed to take a start to win Spec Miata for the year, so despite being on outside pole, I opted to start from the rear and let others battle it out at the front. Plan didn't go exactly as I expected since it is hard to see the flag on the West track and some people missed a shift. I ended up in 2nd in turn one (the black car of Jon Lee is in PTE, a different class and wasn't directly racing us.) More people missing shifts as they tried to stretch their hammered transmissions for one final race made for some interesting "bump" drafting. And for those not familiar with the SM hand signals, a thumbs up is usually thanking someone for pushing/bumping you and the karate chop is a sign to let the person know that you will stay in line and not try to pass.
