MOUNT ALBERT, ON – While there’s no questioning the step up in competition that fourth-generation racer Carson Nagy will face in 2019, the former Super Stock standout is facing his upcoming freshman campaign with open eyes and a readiness to learn.
“Knowing that I’m about to jump in a Pro Late [Model] for a full season has me pinching myself every so often to make sure it’s real,” laughs Nagy. “This is what I’ve dreamed about doing for as long as I can remember. It’s huge. It’s a huge opportunity and I can’t thank my family and sponsors enough.”
Nagy’s family-operated team has yet to confirm where they plan to compete throughout their rookie season, they’ve been working tirelessly throughout the off-season to ensure that their program is ready to hit the ground running in the Spring.
“We’ve been putting a lot of work into our car to make sure we’re ready for Opening Night,” says the rising star. “It’s not that we’re putting pressure on ourselves to try and put up big numbers or compete for wins right off the bat, but we know that we won’t be in any position to learn anything if we don’t show up prepared.”
“I just want to be better with every single race,” continues Nagy. “As long as I’m pushing forward and earning the respect of the guys that I’m racing against then I’ll be the happiest guy in the pit area.”
For Nagy, the journey into Pro Late Model competition is the culmination of years’ worth of dreaming and a myriad of work by his team, family and supporters.
“I promise you that we’re in this for the long haul,” smiles the likeable teenager. “This is just the first rung on the ladder for us – but we’re ready to put in however much time it takes to one day be a champion in this division.”
“We aren’t the guys that are going to get scared off by the workload. 2019 isn’t going to be a ‘one and done’ for our team. We’re ready to work together until we can be one of the teams that is a threat to win every single time we step on the property.”
