Round 2 of the United Truck Parts International Midget Series heads to Bay Park – Tauranga on Friday 28th December 2018. The entire field of these top drivers will have worked hard to prepare their cars ready to head tomorrow.
Round 1 was action packed with several of the top drivers ending up in the Semi Main, all trying to make the main race which had 20 drivers run the 30-Lap final. Michael Pickens lead early followed by Kyle Larson for the green to chequered 30 lap race. Several other drivers made moves throughout the field providing a great spectacle for all to see.
