TOOELE, UT (13 SEPTEMBER 2013)—19-year-old Tyler Palmer capped off a nearly perfect weekend last Saturday as he took his third consecutive national title in the highly competitive Porsche 944 Spec class at the 8th Annual NASA Championships presented by Toyo Tire from Miller Motorsports Park. The triumph in his No. 4 Black Forest/Discount Tire/Mobil 1/Hawk Performance/Bilstein Porsche is the crowning achievement of an incredibly successful 2013 racing season, in which the young driver has proved his talent in a variety of cars and racing series.

Palmer’s defense of his national championship started off with a bang, as all NASA Championships competitors were invited to participate in a karting tournament to kick off the race weekend. 175 racers competed against each other in equally prepared karts to determine whose pure driving ability—not engine power or car setup—reigned supreme. Palmer advanced through the heats to qualify on pole for the final round, before the field was inverted prior to the green flag. Starting from last on the inverted grid, Palmer advanced his way forward in the short final race, to claim victory over all of the NASA Championships competitors and bragging rights—a harbinger to the impressive victories he would capture later in the weekend.

His speed unmatched in qualifying for the Porsche 944 Spec races, Palmer started each qualifying heat from pole position, finishing second in Thursday’s race, and winning Friday’s round. His results in the qualifying races allowed Palmer to start from the front in the final event on Saturday, but the savvy driver knew he couldn’t rest on the laurels of his strong finishes in the qualifiers. “The car was great from the start of the event, but we knew everyone else would be getting faster, so we made some minor adjustments over the course of the weekend to get even better,” explained Palmer.

The start of the final race did not go to plan, as Palmer was shuffled back to third position, but the talented young driver calmly worked his way back through the field to take the lead once more. He steadily built a two-second lead over the second place car, until not one, but two full-course cautions brought the rest of the field back to Palmer’s bumper. “I knew I had to get a great restart each time, and thankfully I was able to do just that and bring it home to the finish line for my third consecutive national title,” said the smiling Oceanside, CA native. “After finishing the race, I knew I’d accomplished something special, and I was elated with what my team and I have been able to do over the past three years.”

Palmer has no definite plans for next season, but is hoping that his consistent quickness in big events like the NASA Championships presented by Toyo Tires will impress professional racing teams that are looking for drivers. With the kind of speed he’s shown in the 2013 season, it won’t be long before Palmer joins the ranks of the country’s most competitive sportscar racers.
