South Aussie Grunter Trevor Green was a jubilant back-to-back winner of the Scott Darley Challenge after romping home with the $19,000 winner’s cheque at Valvoline Raceway in the 40 lap A-Main.

“Evergreen” led for much of the epic main event and almost succumbed to a sensational play for the top spot from Victorian Jamie Veal and NSW youngster Jackson Delamont in the last two laps.

Delamont had led for a large portion of the race in what was his best performance in his short career to date to hold off Brad Sweet, Green, Veal, Steven Lines and Brooke Tatnell.

Scott Darley Challenge Final podium: (l-r) Jackson Delamont (3rd) , Trevor Green (1st), Jamie Veal (2nd)

“It’s such an honour to win this race again,” grinned Green on the podium, “Barry (Lewis) and I are just about broke, so it’s great to get a good payday like this. We’ve had a shocking month so it’s good to get a bloody win!”

 

Final finishing positions were:

1. Trevor Green (SA)
2. Jamie Veal (VIC)
3. Jackson Delamont (NSW)
4. Danny Holtgraver (USA)
5. Brad Sweet (USA)
6. Steven Lines (SA)
7. Brooke Tatnell (NSW)
8. Andrew Wright (NSW)
9. Kyle Hirst (USA)
10. Matt Craft (NSW)
11. Ben Atkinson (NT)
12. Kerry Madsen (NSW)
13. Max Johnston (NSW)
14. Jeremy Cross (NSW)
15. Dylan Jenkin (SA)
16. Blake Skipper (NSW)
17. Sam Walsh (NSW)
18. Jason Sides (USA)
19. Jac Haudenschild (USA)
20. Garry Brazier (NSW)
21. Toby Bellbowen (NSW)
22. Brent Aprile DNF (QLD)
23. Grant Anderson DNF (NSW)
24. Robbie Farr DNF (NSW)

 

Torque Tube Chatter: PREDICTION : With the Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic just around the corner, Robbie Farr needs a bit of luck to get back up to his usual form. James McFadden doesn’t seem to be in the groove at present and some other high end Drivers are running hot and cold.

In our opinion, the man that could present himself as a very real chance for the Classic is none other than Jamie Veal. Based on the Veal Racing Team’s purpose designed campaign in Sydney this season to sharpen and challenge the #35 outfit, he has local track knowledge and comes off the back of some stunningly consistent performances this season,

Tell us we are wrong !
