When West Australia’s Jodi Racco makes his Fuchs Winternationals debut at Willowbank Raceway in less than a week (June 4-7) it will be just his second ever professional Pro Stock event and a dream come true following what the 46 year old calls a ‘misspent youth’.
The Queen’s Birthday long weekend event is the largest championship drag racing event held outside of North America, and will host more than 500 racers and an expected 30,000 spectators at Queensland’s premier drag racing facility across its four days.
“My introduction to drag racing came from what you could call a misspent youth with my older brother Dion, growing up ten minutes away from Ravenswood Raceway it was bound to happen that I would find myself on the race track,” laughed Racco, a Maintenance Superintendent from Waroona who previously raced in Super Stock, making five WA Super Stock finals in a row in his 308 BMSA Commodore, taking 3rd in the 07/08 and 2nd in the 08/09 seasons.
