Veteran racer will be ready for PMRA opener at Grand Bend May 16
WELLAND, ONTARIO (April 18, 2014) – After several years, Bob Nagy is getting back behind the wheel of a Pro Modified.
The Welland, Ontario native will take to the track this season in Pro Modified Racing Association competition with a new 2014 Corvette Pro Modified, just finished in time for the season opener.
“We’ll definitely be ready for Grand Bend,” noted Nagy, who has drag raced since 1965. “I want to get out with the car now for some testing and a feel for things.”
While he may be a PMRA rookie, Nagy is no stranger to the class. He started in Pro Modified when it was in its infancy in 1993 with a 1991 Corvette, touring the tracks with the likes of Mike Janis and the Grainy Brothers. His car was one of the first in the class to be supercharged, and he was the first to hit the magical 200-mph mark with an automatic transmission during this time.
Corvette should benefit with multitude of engine and chassis updates
OSGOODE, ONTARIO (April 12, 2014) – Although the season has yet to start with the Pro Modified Racing Association for 2014, competitor Paolo Giust has been busy racing his Pro Mod with over 20 runs to his credit.
Giust has been Stateside with his 1963 Corvette Pro Modified for testing and racing, and said he is very pleased with his new set-up.
“We’ve got a new MSR (Mike Stawicki Racing) combination,” he said. “Everything with the engine is new except the blower, and we are happy with things so far.”
Entering his third year of PMRA racing, Giust has raced for about 10 years. After racing a Top Dragster in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series, the Osgoode, Ontario racer purchased his Pro Mod and has been learning and updating since.
