Three Nissan drivers made it into the WD-40 SuperSprint top 10 finalists, which took place during the weekend of November 20-22 on Phillip Island, Australia. The racers, all driving Nissan Altimas, were Todd Kelly, Rick Kelly, and James Moffat, with another Nissan driver, Michael Caruso, also participating in the race but not placing in the top 10.
Todd Kelly, who took fifth place in the race, saw his strongest race of the year and became the highest finishing driver in the Nissan Motorsport quartet. Rick Kelly came in sixth place even after being rear-ended by competitors, making a comeback thanks to smart use of pit stops and excellent racing.
James Moffat was the eighth place finisher, but he started off much stronger, even leading the pack at one point. A problem with his breaks forced him to fall behind and outside of the top 10, but he fought his way back in. Caruso was another driver whose misfortune caused a drop in the rankings—his rear wheels spinning during a pit stop earned a penalty that took him from the top 5 to 22nd.
Congrats to all the Nissan drivers at the WD-40 race from Economy Nissan in Durango, CO.
