NASA Great Lakes driver John D. Allen took second place at the inaugural NASA Club Sim race at Circuit of the Americas on April 7.

“I hope this brings a sense of community and positive interaction during the quarantine period, as well as scratching the itch for real competition with many NASA racers already training and racing on simulators at home,” said NASA Texas Regional Director, Will Faules. “It also presents a good opportunity for NASA to grow into the big ‘e-sector’ in the events NASA offers regionally and nationally. We wanted to use club friendly vehicles in the Club League with more challenging vehicles in the Pro League, all while using vehicles included in iRacing as not to incur more costs for the participants in these inaugural leagues.”
