Default DNA brake kit or wilwood

I have a 99miata and I need new pads and rotors. I do around 8 auto crosses and want to get in some track days. What would you guys recommend the DbA break kit or wilwood

I would recommend getting non-drilled rotors from napa. They are dirt cheap, and well-proven in the track community. I don't have any experience with drilled rotors for miatas, but I have replaced plenty of drilled rotors prematurely due to cracks on track cars at work. I'd get the cheap rotors, and spend the money saved on TSE's brake ducting.
What is your power level and experience?

Yeah, for Autox's I'd honestly stick with the decent '99 brakes you have, with blank rotors as suggested. The stock brakes as a system are good for a couple track days a season, but you'll start to taper pads and throw away pads with 50% meat left on them.

Never heard of the DNA kit, stick to what's easily available, the wilwoods. Goodwin/FM/TSE/949 all have them, offer pads, etc.
