Continuing to gain experience with each start behind the wheel, Carson Nagy will check another box off the list by competing in Saturday’s APC United Late Models of Ontario Series event at Jukasa Motor Speedway.
“Really looking forward to racing with the best late model drivers Ontario has to offer,” he told SHORT TRACK MUSINGS.
In making his series debut this weekend, the youngster is focused on learning and gaining as much experience as he can. He was able to get some laps on track ahead of the event, though, partaking in the pre-event testing that was allowed.
“The biggest challenge for me is keeping the tires cool and not over heating the right rear tire,” he commented. “It’s hard to keep your car at a steady pace on a long run during the race!”
He also isn’t going into this event totally green, as he competed in Flamboro Speedway’s weekly program last season.
“The biggest thing I’ve learned is how hard you can really drive the pro late models,” he said. “You really have to drive these cars deep into the corners and it’s definitely not what I expected when I first started racing them!”
Nagy hopes to be part of the following events in the series at Sauble Speedway and Flamboro Speedway, but notes he’s just taking it one race at a time right now.
“Thank you to Junior Hanley, Queenston Chevy, Pure Energy Performance, Jukasa Designs, limitless, my family, and everyone who donated money to help get me on track,” he added. “If you want your name on my race car, just message!”
