FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DECEMBER 10 2022
Jamie Veal slid into round 3 of the Eureka Garages and Sheds SRA Series and Fireball Derby in clinical fashion, taking out the main event by over 7 seconds to Lachlan Mchugh and Grant Anderson.
Bobby Daly would start his night with an overall QuickTime courtesy of his late flight start with Jamie Veal, Grant Anderson and Brett Milburn taking their individual flight quick time awards.
Heat wins were occupied by Matthew Reed in heat one, Jordan Rae in heat two, Michael Tancredi in heat three and Lachlan Mchugh in heat four.
The V35 was simply too quick when it came time for the Top 8 Shootout. Veal would qualify from pole position with Mccullagh, Milburn, Daly, Anderson, McHugh, Tancredi and Reed making up the top 8.
The 10 Lap C Main was won by Daniel Reinhardt with Marlin Carrigan Walsh, Mitch Smith and Luke Thomas qualifying into the B Main.
With 6 spots on offer for the all important main event, Dennis Jones knew he had to lock down that top spot in the B to head through. Going with Jones would be Ashley Cook, Eddie Lumbar, Jordyn Charge, Tim Hutchins and Paul Solomon.
30 Laps on the board for the feature would breed an early caution. This would restack the field for 28 laps remaining under green while Jamie Veal simply put on a clinic. Veal lapped through three quarters of the field before a green white chequers caution at the end of the race would see him end up with a 7 second lead in a dominant performance at the Place for pace.
Lachie Mchugh and Grant Anderson both put on a show upstairs around the fence through traffic and would settle for second and third respectively.
Brett Milburn and Matthew Reed made up the remaining two spots in the top five before Rankin, Mccullagh, Daly, Rae and Hughes rounded out the top 10 in round 3 of the Eureka Garages and Sheds Series and Sprintcar Fireball Derby honouring the Evans Family in this time honoured event.
Street Stocks ran their long running Bruce Riddiford Memorial race which would see Ricky Throckmorton take the heat 1 win and Tim Hutchinson claim heat race number 2.
With just a second separating the two in the final, it was Throckmorton who had the advantage over the line. Tim Hutchinson would finish on the podium in second alongside Jensen Wilson. Leigh Bourke, Ellen Vagg and Mick Hume made up their short and sharp field of Street Stocks.
