Nash Morris wins first TA2 race at Calder Park

TFH Hire Services Ford Mustang driver Nash Morris scored the first ever TA2 Muscle Car Series framed by Hytek race win at Calder Park Raceway, 22 years after his father Paul won the final Supercars race at the venue.

Morris scored his fourth career PWR Pole Award in the Top 10 Shootout, besting debutant Jarrod Hughes in the AC Delco Ford Mustang by four tenths of a second.

Morris lead Hughes away from the start, before a safety car was called on Lap 5 after Peter Robinson spun and hit the concrete wall on the exit of Turn 5.

The race resumed on Lap 10 with three laps to go, as Morris fended off a fast-finishing Hughes to the finish.

Dream Racing Australia’s Jackson Rice hustled Josh Haynes for the whole race, but it was Haynes who closed the gap to series leader Dylan Thomas with a third place finish, while Thomas finished fifth in the CXC Racing Mustang closely behind Rice.

Nicholas Bates won the Circo Masters Class ahead of Russell Wright and Kubota Racing’s Matt MacKelden.

Haynes closed the gap from 24 points to 20 to Thomas for the championship lead, with Thomas on 1078 points and Haynes 1058, with 180 points up for grabs heading into the final day of the season.

The TA2 Muscle Car Series framed by Hytek returns for Race 2 at 12:45pm AEDT, Race 3 at 4:58pm and Race 4 at 7:22pm at Calder Park Raceway. Saturday’s action can be viewed online with a livestream from 11am - 3:30pm, before it is live and free on SBS from 4pm - 8pm, simulcast on Fox Sports and Kayo.

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