Nasse goes to a Backup, then Back to the Primary

Stephen Nasse was only able to run a couple of laps in his freshly built Senneker Performance racecar during the first practice for the 51st Annual Snowball Derby before having to break out the backup car. He didn’t hit the wall, but did break the rear end of his Jett Motorsports prepared machine.

Nasse and company made the switch to the backup, a FURY built racecar that Nasse has ran throughout the 2018 season, but still couldn’t get the feel just right.

After some deliberation, the team decided to go back to the primary and transfer the rear end from the FURY car to the Senneker car.

In an article posted on Short Track Scene, Nasse said the initial switch to the backup didn’t pan out the way they wanted.

“The FURY didn’t work out the way I thought it would,” Nasse said. “All the drive that I had on Monday, the turn-ability was non-existent today. Everything that I thought I had on Monday was gone. I don’t know if the track changed or what, but Jeff (Choquette, teammate) and I can’t figure it out.”

If this plays out like Nasse and his team would like, this will be the final swap of racecars for the weekend. That’s a point that many in the grandstands would enjoy… seeing that Nasse’s primary car is wrapped in a special scheme that pays homage to the wildly popular video game, Fortnite.

Nasse posted the 15th best time of the day in his 51 machine, but hope to improve during the two practice sessions set for Friday before Snowball Derby Qualifying.
