VEAL WINS NIGHT OF HIGH DRAMA IN SPEEDWEEK OPENER!
VEAL WINS NIGHT OF HIGH DRAMA ON SPEEDWEEK OPENER Official release: Clay-Per-View Sprintcars Speedweek December 27, 2022
Jamie Veal leads the Clay-Per-View Sprintcars Speedweek point score as the four nights in seven days battle heads into Night Two at Borderline Speedway Mount Gambier this Wednesday night.
Following a dramatic 35-lap A-Main series opener at Murray Machining & Sheds Murray Bridge Speedway tonight in front of an enormous crowd despite the furnace like weather conditions Victorian Veal leads from Tasmanian Jock Goodyer, South Aussie Luke Dillon, Texan Chase Randall and South Aussie Ryan Jones rounding out the top five in points.
The Murray Bridge main event looked to be an all the way affair for Veal who dominated most of the race until Goodyer reeled him in with only a handful of laps remaining and pounced as the duo came up on lapped car Brendan Guerin in turn three and four with only two laps remaining.
Goodyer and Veal made contact with Veal spinning out in turn four but keeping the car running and re-joining the race pace without dropping a further spot behind him to third placed Dillon.
Officials shortly after relegated Goodyer one spot for the contact and reinstated Veal into the winner’s circle drawing a loud and mixed response from the big crowd.
South Australian Luke Dillon came home strongly in third ahead of impressive Texan teenager Chase Randall in fourth, local hero Ryan Jones in fifth, Lockie McHugh in sixth from the B-Main win, Steven Line seventh (from the final transfer in the B-Main), Cody Maroske eighth, Keke Falland ninth and Joel Heinrich rounding out the top ten.
Original polesitter Chad Ely was eleventh, Ricky Maiolo twelfth, Brendan Guerin thirteenth and Max Vidau was classified as the last car running in fourteenth.
DNF’s were Ben Morris, Steven Caruso, Tate Frost, Brendan Quinn, Daniel Pestka and Brock Hallett.
