Trucker comes up trumps with Big Haul win
A QUEENSLAND farmertrucker who has never won as much as a ‘‘meat tray in a pub raffle’’ has just won a $400,000 Kenworth.
Graham Nitschke, from the small town of Dysart, was given the keys to his new rig last month as part of Castrol’s The Big Haul promotion.
‘‘I’m still up in the clouds,’’ he says.
Nitschke runs a fleet of seven Kenworths, ranging from a 1975 W925 to a 2009 T908, and will put his new truck straight to work.
‘‘I thought about sticking an 8 x 8 tray on the back and using it as my ute, but that would be a bit over the top,’’ Nitschke jokes.
