Stephen Nasse lived up to both of his monikers on Saturday night during the Full Throttle 100 event at the Citrus County Speedway.
Mr. Excitement or Classy/Nasty Nasse provided entertainment value to the ticket during and after the $10,000-to-win race at Inverness, Florida.
Nasse ultimately dictated the outcome of the race, spinning leader Mike Bresnahan with 21 laps to go. Nasse was sent to the rear as a penalty but drove all the back to second over the final laps.
One fan in the grandstands took exception to Nasse’s driving style and was hurtling insults and jeers from his seat.
Nasse acknowledged him during his frontstretch runner-up interview.
“That guy’s a real hardass over there in the stands,” Nasse said over a live microphone. “I guarantee you he wouldn’t say shit to my face up close and personal. I don’t know what he’s thinking but you better just stay in the stands, guy. That’s all I got to say. It’s racing and if you’ve got a problem with it, I’m over in the pits all night long. Come see me.”
