In the early 2000s he engaged in extreme driving school, "Moiseev-Grahov" at the St. Petersburg moto track for six months, where he left after an unpleasant incident at one of the domestic competitions.
For a long time he was looking for where he could continue the classes, but found nothing then he stopped searching. His memory took him to his earlier childhood about 6 years he spent it in Tennis, he loved to dive and swim, so at the same time in the early 2000s, after his father became interested in scuba diving his passion took him into Technical Diving. Later in 2008 he return to the professional auto sports. The word "hit" right in this situation is best, because it happened quite by accident. One winter evening, after school, traveling on the Internet stumbled upon a photo of her classmate Kulibaba Leonid - a sports car (the cups Lada 2112), with his name on the board. It turned out that the summer of 2007 he took part in the Championship of Russia on RTCC circuit races in the St. Petersburg team "Jackpot" - multiple champion of Leningrad region and Rally two-time champion of Russia on road circuit races. After meeting with the team, and after some discussion he decided to adopt Denis Nagulin and he became a part of the team and start training. On the same period, the team made several trips to Moscow to Myachkovo Autodrome, where Denis first got behind the wheel race vehicle (ring-race VW Polo GTi). As a result, the team decided to roll up into just three classes RTCC: "National" (Lada 2112) - Leonid Kulibaba and Igor Locusts, "Touring" (Seat Leon) - Nikita Vasilyev, "Touring-Light" (WV Polo GTi) - Denis Nagulin.

It was the first truly full racing season for Denis. In the winter season 2009-2010 Denis returned to St. Petersburg and with moto track already home to the team of Denis 'Jackpot' on the car Lada 2112 became vice Nagulin champion of the North-West of Russia track ice racing. That same winter Denis gained his first victory - it was a rally-sprint on lifting the siege of Leningrad held at Luga. Then again Nagulin Denis was the first, but on the race moto track dedicated on March 8.
