50th Annual Western Nationals Preview: Brodie Zappia

We caught up with Junior Dragster racer Brodie Zappia to ask some questions about the upcoming 50th Annual Western Nationals. Brodie currently leads the WA Drag Racing Championship and sits 4th in the Summit Racing Equipment Junior Dragster Sportsman Series.

What was your first Western National you raced in?

My first Western Nationals was the 2014 Western Nationals in March, after receiving my licence in November the previous year.

What’s your Western Nationals Drag Racing Highlight?

My Western Nationals highlight would be making it to the semi finals at 8 years old, at the 2014 western nationals, in my first season racing junior dragsters in a big field, with over 32 cars.

What would it mean to you win the 50th Annual Western National?

It would mean quite a lot if I won the 50th Western Nationals. Not only is it the half century running of the event, but it would also be a massive stepping stone in my championship chase, both nationally and locally, and the event would be my first Golden Christmas Tree win.
