MOUNT HOPE, ON – Following his first full season spent competing in the Flamboro Speedway Super Stock division, fourth-generation racer Carson Nagy will make his first ever Pro Late Model appearance during the Grisdale Triple Crown portion of Flamboro’s Frostoberfest this Saturday.
“This is one of those moments I’ve thought about for a long time, so it’s kinda surreal that it’s actually happening,” smiles Nagy. “Right now I’m just counting the days until we get to unload at Flamboro. This is going to be the best weekend of the whole year for me.”
And, while there’s no questioning the fact that Nagy is excited to test himself against elite-level competition on Saturday afternoon, he’s every bit as excited to get a feel for his family-owned Pro Late Model in race trim for the first time.
“I’m more concerned with how I finish than where I finish this weekend,” admits the multi-time Super Stock feature winner. “I know that the Late Model is going to race differently than anything else I’ve ever experienced.”
“This is going to be a whole new deal for me. I just want to make sure that I take care of my equipment, make as many laps as I can and try to figure what works and what doesn’t work with these cars.”
Saturday’s Triple 50-Lap features will mark the final Pro Late Model event on Ontario’s 2018 schedule, but Nagy and his family-run team are already looking ahead to what they hope might be a very eventful 2019.
“What happens next year is going to rely a lot on how much sponsorship we can put together this Winter,” explains the well-spoken teenager. “I’m excited to race as much as I can next year. If we can run (Pro Late Model) fulltime at Flamboro it’d be a dream come true. So, we’ll hope for a good start on Saturday and then we’ll see how many hands we can shake this off-season.”
