Veteran Max Dumesny saved his best for last in the Sprintcar track championship semi-final Saturday 5th April at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway.

On a racy surface under dark clouds, Dumesny followed Jay Waugh into the lead and began to pressure him.

However, Waugh stuck to the outside line and continued to set the pace for 10 laps until Dumesny got the better of him in his Valvoline machine.

Once in front Dumesny gave no one a chance although point score chaser James Thompson looked a threatening at times.

Dumesny ran the low line for most of the race, but changed to the top when he found himself under a little pressure two laps from the finish.

Craig Brady was using the outside line to full advantage in the #74 Muswellbrook Nissan entry for Michael Rinkin.

Dumesny thoroughly deserved his win and the victory has sealed the season premiership for him with only the grand final remaining.
