Machavern finished his USMajors Southeast Conference season at VIR. Knowing he had a schedule conflict with exams slated for the same weekend as the final two rounds at Summitt Point, Machavern was focused on a strong finish in his #24 Spec Miata.
As expected, a deep, competitive field went out for morning qualifying on a wet surface setting up the afternoon session as the one which would set the grid for Saturday's race. Machavern finished in P1 after starting in P5. On Sunday, finsihed P4 after starting in P9.
