Jamie Veal continues Warrnambool streak
Jamie Veal’s rich vein of form continued with victory on night two of the 54th Lucas Oil Australian Sprintcar Championships at Warrnambool’s Premier Speedway.
The Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic champion’s hot streak now sees the local edge closer to a maiden national title.
It was a south-west podium with Darren Mollenoyux finishing second ahead of newly crowned Victorian champion John Vogels.
Starting from fourth, Veal had to bide his time on the lightning fast track as 2014 Knoxville Raceway Track Champion Ian Madsen led early.
Veal realised his third big money feature inside a week at his home track.
“I just had to wait my time for lapped traffic to come into it and I knew that would work for us,” Veal said.
“I’m feeling great about tomorrow (Sunday) night, after the week we’ve had it’d be unbelievable to get the Aussie #1 on our car.”
Veal sits seventh overall in points heading into tonight’s title decider.
Grant Anderson is the top points scorer ahead of opening night winner Brooke Tatnell, Luke Dillon, Daniel Harding and Kerry Madsen.
The championship decider completes seven nights of racing in 10 nights at the Warrnambool venue.
