Lynton Jeffrey nabs late win from Brad Sweet in Sydney
Lynton Jeffrey has won the NSW Sprintcar Title after a final lap overtake of Brad Sweet in USC NSW Round 8 at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway.
Jeffrey stalked the American star before passing him between Turns 3 and 4 to take victory in the night’s feature race.
He had shown impressive form and the Iowa-based Sydneysider rated his first win at his home track as a career milestone.
“I’ve won the World Challenge at Knoxville and the Huset’s Track Championship in South Dakota but winning a race at my home track is right up there with both of those,” said Jeffrey.
“It’s an amazing feeling to finally win here.”
Earlier, New South Wales driver Andrew Wright emerged unhurt from an enormous rollover in his heat race in Turn 1.
Wright destroyed his car but is set to return for tomorrow night’s Firecracker 50-Lapper in Sydney.
Sweet and compatriot Ryan Bowers will make their final appearance of the Australian season in that, the next round of the Ultimate Sprintcar Championship NSW.
