Kiwi's tackle US Speedway


Auckland based Midget Car racers Bryce Townsend (pictured), Scott Buckley and Shaun Insley will take part in a three-car assault on the American scene this (southern hemisphere) winter starting at the two night Kansas Klassic at Dodge City Raceway in July.

The tour will also take in the prestigious Belleville Nationals on the daunting five-eighth mile high-banked track.

Chassis fabricator Justin Insley will travel with the team with a view toward gauging the potential for sales of the Aggressor chassis, which has already achieved considerable success in Australia in the hands of Mark Brown.

Townsend has had his car’s Hawk engine rebuilt by Steve Smith in Australia in preparation for the campaign; Buckley, and Shaun Insley who will run a limited number of races, have opted to run their Mopar engines.
