Delaware, ON (Sept. 22, 2023) – When the checkered flag fell on Friday night’s season finale for the Qwick Wick Super Stock series in 2023, it was the racing firm of Nagy and Nagy who held court. Hudson Nagy won the battle, capturing his first career win on the tour, while brother Carson Nagy won the war, claiming the championship to go along with the Delaware Speedway crown he wrapped up a week prior.
The dynamic duo were able to finish one-two in qualifying, with Hudson besting his brother, while Ryan Dyson qualified third. Trevor Collver wound up fourth, with Rick Verberne fifth.
Lane Zardo entered the night with a three-point lead over Carson in the race for the season crown, but he was not his usual speedy self as the team struggled to find speed in the car, only recording an eighth-place qualifying attempt.
Following the invert, Hudson Nagy and Dyson started on the front row, and when the green flew, Hudson set sail, opening up an early lead and continuing to inch away from Dyson. Carson Nagy jumped into third and took off in pursuit of Dyson, reeling him in, working him over, and taking second just before the halfway mark.
By lap 10 Zardo had slid back to eighth, and as the laps rolled by, no yellows would appear, and that was the best result that the former champion was able to muster.
The laps zipped by, and the race would end up going yellow-free, and while Carson was able to cut a little bit off his brothers’ lead, he kept his eyes on the big prize, the championship.
When the checkers fell, Hudson was going to VP Racing Fuels victory lane for the first time, becoming the fifth different winner in five races in 2023, and the 12th different winner in 18 races in series history.
With the second-place finish, Carson was able to overtake Zardo in the standings to become the fourth different Qwick Wick Super Stock series champion.
Dyson finished third, with Shawn Chenoweth fourth, while Justin Collison posted his career best finish at Delaware, rolling home fifth.
Top 3 in series final standings are Carson Nagy, Lane Zardo and Shawn Chenoweth.
