Larry Nash joins Mundill for Oval program
Recently completing their first Oval track test at Pikes Peak International Raceway, Mundill today announced that Larry Nash will be joining the team for their Oval efforts. The team completed two days of testing on the 1-mile track, providing Mundill driver Anders Krohn with his first outing on an Oval track.
With a desire to go racing at the highest level, Nash moved to Indianapolis in 1983 working for Gary Bettenhausen. He was one of the creators behind the March IndyCar that set a track record of 204.443 mph at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1985, and has since then gone on to work with drivers such as Sam Schmidt, Emerson Fittipaldi, Eliseo Salazar and Paul Tracy to name a few.
Nash was very happy with what he saw from Mundill's crew and driver alike. "I appreciate the opportunity to work with everybody at Mundill, and I think they did an excellent job. They are a hard working group that seems very eager to learn. Ovals are a great challenge, and I look forward to helping both Anders and the team. From what I've seen so far I have no doubt we can run at the front of the field." Said Larry Nash about his first two days with Mundill.
Anders Krohn enjoyed working with Larry Nash, and admitted that his first outing on an Oval was an eye opener. "Larry did a great job in preparing me for the first outing and we started making progress immediately. It was a new and exciting experience to drive on a track with such high bankings and concrete walls. I quickly found it comfortable to go flat out around the entire track, which is all thanks to Larry and the guys at Mundill putting together an immaculate car. The Oval races this year should be fun!" Said Krohn, who ended up posting his quickest lap time with an average speed of 138.6 mph.
Mundill and Krohn are now preparing for round three of the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear, which will be held at Miller Motorsports Park just outside Salt Lake City, UT on May 16th.
