SOLD: 1994 NASA Spec Miata

Posted: November 18, 2013 in Racing

I’m happy to say the car is SOLD and going to a new NASA driver in the region!

I’m taking part of next year off and building a new car so I’m putting my Spec Miata up for sale.  The car has been maintained and built mainly by Jesse Prather Motorsports of Topeka, KS.  He’s a NASA Certified Tech shop as well and a Mazda go to guy for Spec Miatas.  The car is in ready to race condition.

74 at MPH

1994 Mazda Miata with 161k miles on it. Carfax shows no significant wreck in its lifetime. Spec Miata rules compliant car as per NASA Spec Miata 2013 Rules (2014 Rules should be released in January 2014 but no significant changes should affect the car). Car was built to SM rules in early 2012 and was used to compete in NASA Central Region finishing 2nd in 2012 and 4th in 2013. The car has won several races and frequently is on the podium. Car maybe titled in your state as all the lights work on it.  It has been maintained and prepared each season by Jesse Prather Motorsports in Topeka, KS (JPM). JPM is a NASA Tech Shop and a Mazda guru.  Car has also not been wrecked or hit so it is in good body shape. Price is $8,500 for the car as is – as with any racecar significantly more was spend building and improving it.
