WARRNAMBOOL, Australia — Jamie Veal dominated the second Oval Express Australia / America Cup presented by Oval Express magazine at Sungold Stadium during the penultimate evening of the 42nd Lucas Oil Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic.
On a racy surface, Veal’s car was lightning fast as he led all but three laps of the 30-lap final running the top groove to hold off American Jason Meyers and a ever-steady Max Dumesny before a huge crowd of 7,100.
“It’s just a dream come true,” Veal said. “I’ve been watching this race for years and to win was just about keeping focused. I was happy to keep up high and it as just easier to go around the top.”
World of Outlaws champion Daryn Pittman finished fourth with Paul McMahan fifth.
