Speedway - Porter Hire International Sprintcar Series

On Tuesday night the Robertson Holden International Speedway will host one of the biggest names to visit in many years when Tony Stewart pilots his Sprintcar at Arena Manawatu. The American racer nicknamed ‘Smoke’ is oval track royalty, having a storied career in NASCAR, Indycar, Midgets and Sprintcars, and is also a successful team owner.

He will be joined by compatriots Shane Stewart and Kyle Hirst, who recently both won rounds of the World of Outlaws Sprintcar series, along with experienced visitor Jonathan Allard and Brad Loyet who also made the trip down under last season.

Local drivers will be keen to get their hands on a share of the $55,000 series prize pool, with current New Zealand champion Jamie Larsen and Wellington’s Stephen Taylor the best of the bunch.

Veteran Aucklanders Jamie McDonald and Dean Brindle are always tough to beat, while Midget star Michael Pickens won last season’s round at Arena Manawatu. Former national champion Rodney Wood has a mixed record at Palmerston North but cannot be discounted, and Daniel Thomas was the surprise package last season.

The opening round of the Porter Hire International Sprintcar Series kicks off this Saturday at Auckland’s Western Springs, before heading down to Palmerston North on Tuesday 12th December and back to Western Springs the following Saturday night.

Gates open at 6pm so you can check out the race cars and their drivers before the Grand Parade gets underway at 7pm.
