Counting off their Speedway New Zealand achievements is like trying to keep score in T20 cricket. How about this list? Six New Zealand titles. Seven runnerup finishes and another 11 third placings. Six New Zealand Grand Prix titles with seven seconds and seven thirds. Six North Island championships with seven second placings and four thirds.
Off season? Soon after the World Finals in Charlotte, winged sprint car drivers hop on those big jumbo jets to head to New Zealand and Australia while the midget racers have to wait until after Turkey Night in California to head to New Zealand for their international season of racing. As with any racing trip you take, you try to get as many racing nights in as you can in the short amount of time you have planned.
