Trucker comes up trumps with Big Haul win

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

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.
