“It’s starting to feel like our turn to win one of these big races is right around the corner,” smiles the soft-spoken up-and-comer. “We’ve taken one step closer every time we’ve had this car out this year. Every time we can run up front with it, we get fired up to work even harder. It really feels like we’re close to breaking through with this program.”
The Mount Hope, ON product finished sixth in Flamboro’s 2018 championship points standings and believes that his extra experience at the Hamilton-area bullring will only serve to further his chances of making an impression throughout Sunday’s unique triple-50 lap event.
“I really believe that running weekly at Flamboro is the perfect way to prepare for marquee shows like this,” explains the fourth-generation star.
“When you’re on track with the level of talent that’s here every single Saturday, it pushes you to be better. We learned pretty quickly that if we aren’t going to come with our absolute best stuff then we may as well just stay home.”
On the topic of pre-race strategy, Nagy insists that keeping things simple will be one of the most important aspects to putting together a strong performance.
“Our number one goal is just to survive all three rounds,” notes the former Super Stock standout. “Every 50-Lap segment is it’s own race. But, if you knock a corner off of your car, your whole afternoon will be over.”
“Flamboro can deal you a bad hand if you let it, so we need to take care of our equipment all day,” adds Nagy. “Three strong finishes are going to make all the difference on Sunday – but we can’t finish strong if we’re tearing our stuff up. That’s what I have to remember.”
