Lee Nash has been on the sidelines since late last year, suffering concussion in a heavy crash at the Perth Motorplex, but he has returned to the seat in the Wormall Civil #7.
Nash and the team opted not to rush his return to racing, instead sitting out a handful of races until he was in good health but he is now ready for action and will be chasing a good result when World Series Sprintcars returns to Perth Motorplex this Saturday night.
In the lead up to the show, Nash raced in the WA 360 Sprintcar Championship at Collie Speedway last Saturday night, finishing fifth, with victory going to team mate Mitchell Wormall from Daniel Keen and another team mate in Ben Ellement.
In the lead up to World Series Sprintcars arriving in town we asked Nash if he treated the bigger races any different.
“There is more pressure,” he said. “There is no guarantee of making the show and there is so much emphasis on qualifying.
“When you have got that calibre of racers with you, you have to qualify and that’s mentally hard to adapt to, there is no margin for error.
“You have got two laps to string a good lap together and in past history a 10th of a second is a massive amount – it could mean making the invert or not – so that’s where it starts – qualify well and the rest is a fairly easy night.”
