Northern Conference, Spec Miata
Michael Novak, of Highland, Mich., was one of two drivers to run each of the Northern Conference Spec Miata races in 2013. The sheer number of starts helped Novak to collect as many points as he could in the highly competitive class that saw 77 drivers take a green flag during the season.
He placed on the podium six times in 10 races while driving the Roush, Caldwell Race Prep Mazda Miata. Novak’s podium recorded included back-to-back second-place finishes at Michigan International Speedway, a second-place at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, a pair of third-place finishes at Gingerman Raceway and a third-place at Gateway Motorsport Park.
