$5,000 to be WON at the Masterton Motorplex Dragstrip.

$5000 will be given to the first 5 second pass Door Slammer that is run in New Zealand at the Masterton Motorplex Dragstrip.

Looking forward to the December NZDRA Nationals in Masterton to see if Nigel Dixon in his BF Falcon or Barry Plumpton in his New NOS-assisted 1968 Camaro will WIN Masterton Motorplex $5,000 ......

Or could it be a Door slammer that hasn’t registered yet?

i will be standing on the startline rooting for one but hey a 5 second door car gets congrats no matter who you crew for. maybe i should make another challenge Barry Plumpton. i lost my beard last meet on a challenge??? would have to be a team effort for this challenge though

Which meeting are you going to. Don,t forget Dad and me going to the one in March. Eh Bob we going to pinch Wayne and Linda's bed ha ha

NZ doorslammers will end up in the 5’s for sure, but I doubt it’ll be this season

Crikey! I'd slam a door for $5,000 lol

Someone fly us over I’ll give a go not the 5 but a good race lol

Julian O'Connell is gmr car racing?
