Shane Tucker will be back racing on home soil in the Klip Payments GXP driving for Team Owner Nick Pellicciotti who has entrusted Tucker to take the wheel for the upcoming 56th Gulf Western Oil Winternationals.

“I’m excited to get back on home turf, racing competitively and with friends is something I have missed doing,” said Shane Tucker.

When Nick Pellicciotti expressed his interest in going Pro Stock racing with the Tuckers he was advised by Shane to purchase a car that he knew well – Shane’s ex RJ’s GXP originally driven by him in 2013.

“I originally asked Shane as a joke and two years later here we are,” said Team Owner Nick Pellicciotti.

The team’s engine which was finished one month ago by Rob Tucker and arrived into the country last week, was held up in customs wit the team only gaining access to their engine last Friday. Since then they thrashed to be able to make it to the Warm Ups ready to go.

“I don’t think this would be possible without the help of Rob and Shane Tucker, the knowledge that comes with them on the car is second to none,” said Pellicciotti.

Pellicciotti plans to climb into the car after the Winternationals with the desire to compete in Pro Stock next year. Having completed his apprenticeship in Super Street and then Super Sedan, Pellicciotti’s goal has always been to race Pro Stock, and now with the assistance of the Tucker’s it will happen.

The now Pro Stock veteran, Tucker does not want to speculate on any numbers that the car will produce, using the Winter Warm Ups to get the car and driver acclimated again. However, Tucker and this car have won a previous edition of the Winternationals together so he is confident the car will be fast going into this year’s event.

The wealth of knowledge in both Rob and Shane Tucker definitely has been missed in the Australian Pro Stock field, and they are finally back for this years instalment of what is shaping up to be a memorable Winternationals with the first all-six Pro Stock field on the table.
