MOUNT HOPE, ON – After impressing with a runner-up finish in Sunday’s Stock Car Nationals event at Flamboro Speedway,and picking up a feature win Saturday,top prospect Carson Nagy has filed entry for Thursday’s Great Lakes Concrete Super Stock Series event at Sauble Speedway.
Nagy has looked strong in weekly events at Flamboro this season and is hoping that Thursday night will play host to his first ever touring series victory.
“We’ve really turned a corner with our program this year,” offers Nagy with a smile as his team works to prepare their familiar No. 63 for Thursday’s event. “It’s just all of the lessons I picked up last year coming together with all of the hours we put in as a team this off-season.”
“The car is working like a dream right now,” adds the fourth-generation racer. “I’m so excited to see how much better we can make it.”
And, while a 2nd place finish at Flamboro against some of the best competition in the division is never anything to be ashamed of – Nagy insists he will Carey some additional motivation into Sauble’s midweek show after having let a possible win slip through his finger last weekend.
“Days like the ones that we had on Sunday are the types that make you better,” says the Mount Hope, ON driver. “I still feel like we had a car that could have won. I may have made some decisions that kept that from happening. But, it’s all a lesson. I’ll be even more ready for Thursday night because of how I performed on Sunday.”
While there’s no question that Nagy has a deep respect for the level of competition that the Great Lakes Concrete mini-series attracts, he also sees the 50-lap contest as an opportunity to further establish himself as one of the Super Stock division’s can’t miss prospects.
“We’re always looking for a challenge,” says Nagy. “If there’s a race with a lot of talented teams entered – then that’s where we’re going to be.”
“My Dad has always said that we don’t want ‘easy’, because ‘easy’ doesn’t make you better,” continues the former Mini Stock regular. “I’m really exited for the challenge at Sauble, because I know that these series races have brought out the best of the best so far. We’re going to have to be at our best if we want to contend.”
