Morris continues family legacy at Calder

NASH Morris has drawn first blood in the 2023 TA2 Muscle Car Series finale at Calder Park, marking his first win in the category.

The result also comes 22 years on from his father Paul winning the last ever Supercars race at the historic Victorian circuit.

Morris Sr took a total of three wins in his Supercars career: the final two races of the 2001 Calder Park round (solo), and the 2014 Bathurst 1000 with Chaz Mostert.

His 20-year-old son has enjoyed a breakout year, including several victories in the National Trans Am Series and qualifying on the Super2 front-row last weekend in Adelaide.

At Calder, Nash soared to pole position and held off his Norwell Motorplex protégé Jarrod Hughes to take the Race 1 honours.

“I treat every race meeting the same, I always want to go out there and do my best,” said Morris.

“The car feels good, the team and myself are very happy, so we will go out there tomorrow and hopefully win some more races.

“I had my student Jarrod Hughes from Norwell, I reckon I have taught him so well, he is doing a very good job for his first race in the category so it’s good to see him up there with coming in second.”

As for the title fight, Josh Haynes closed the margin to series leader Dylan Thomas from 24 points to 20.

Another 180 points are on the line tomorrow across the final three races of the season.
