Malcolm drove his Nissan Sentra SE-R with K&N Engineering products for two pace laps around the 2.8 mile course. When the green flag finally dropped, Malcolm was caught hitting the rev -limiter in second gear and fell back six places. He eventually passed cars along the way until he caught up with a PTD Mazdaspeed RX-8 and a PTC Scion tC.

“The rest of the race involved the Scion trying to get back around the Mazdaspeed RX-8 and our Sentra SE-R trying to pass them both,” said Malcolm. “On day one, we finished 3rd in class and 13th over all with a fast lap of 2:00.1.

The next day Malcolm had a great warm up and the start of the race was great. “I was part of a three wide group going into turn three as I headed into the infield,” he said. “This put us in the mix again with the PTD Mazdaspeed RX-8 and PTC Scion tC.” Malcolm was able to take advantage of an opening and passed both cars.

The PTC Scion had a good run on the straight and started to make a pass on the outside. Malcolm then jumped in behind the Scion to try and make a pass on the RX8. ‘I tried to make a pass on the first place RX8,” he said. “But the RX8 pulled out ahead.”

Malcolm eventually finished 3rd in his class and 16th overall with a fast lap time of 2:00.6. The NASA Series is an amateur racing program which has more than 10,000 members in 15 chapters across the United States.

“I can always count on my K&N air and oil filters,” said Malcolm. “K&N gives additional horsepower and keeps the dust and dirt out of my engine.”
