First NASA Race Event of the Season at California Speedway in Fontana
The Enterprise Automation/Malcolm-Racing Team started its 2008 season at California Speedway in Fontana, California. On opening day, driver Derrick Malcolm qualified third in his NASA (National Auto Sport Association) Performance Touring Series (PTD) class.

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.”
