BIG PURSE

NZV8 - - LOCAL GOSSIP -

There’s set to be plenty of ac­tion later this month at Waikaraka Fam­ily Speed­way, with around $16K in prize and ap­pear­ance money up for grabs. Fe­bru­ary 20 will see the Mod­i­fied Grand Prix, in which driv­ers will not only get the chance to set­tle old ri­val­ries but also be in with a chance to take home their share of $4K. Al­most 30 cars are al­ready en­tered and will pro­vide a great spec­ta­cle for the crowd as they race for vic­tory. While home­town hero Jamie ‘Foxy’ Fox is known as the man to beat at Waikaraka, he’ll have his work cut out for him to stay at the head of the pack with that much cash for the tak­ing. The Mod­i­fied Dirt Cup a week later, on Fe­bru­ary 27, will see the prize pool to al­most $12K, the largest on of­fer in the sport. Then the ever-pop­u­lar Teams Na­tion­als will hit the Waikaraka clay on March 4 and 5. The event will see eight top teams from around the coun­try, in­clud­ing the Palmer­ston Pan­thers, the Nelson Tigers, the Gis­borne Gi­ants, and the Bay­park Busters, face off for na­tional brag­ging rights.
