Farr Stops Sweet In New South Wales Championship

GRANVILLE, Australia – Robbie Farr halted American Brad Sweet’s win streak at two during Monday’s round of Ultimate Sydney Speedweek at Valvoline Raceway.

Farr led from wire to wire in the 35-lap New South Wales Sprint Car Championship main event, taking his No. NQ7 sprinter to victory by .781 seconds over Jamie Veal.

In fact, it was a clean sweep of the night for Farr, who set fast time, won his heat race and topped the pole shuffle before his picture-perfect performance in the feature.

While Veal, Sweet and two-time All Stars Circuit of Champions titlist Aaron Reutzel all had shots to go after Farr for the race lead, Farr’s toughest – and easily most surprising – challenge came from Jackson Delamont, who used the outside to storm past his foes.

Delamont came from 10th and had a chance to try and run down Farr before fading late.

Sweet finished third, remaining on the podium for the third-straight race, with Delamont and Reutzel following.

Marcus Dumesny, Lynton Jeffrey, Ryan Jones, Michael Saller and Danny Reidy completed the top 10.

World of Outlaws standout Ian Madsen finished a disappointing 21st, retiring at halfway.

Ultimate Sydney Speedweek continues on Jan. 1 at Valvoline Raceway.

The finish:

Robbie Farr, Jamie Veal, Brad Sweet, Jackson Delamont, Aaron Reutzel, Marcus Dumesny, Lynton Jeffrey, Ryan Jones, Michael Saller, Danny Reidy, Shaun Dobson, Alex Orr, Grant Tunks, Jessie Attard, Max Dumesny, Troy Little, Michael Stewart, Mick Matchett, Luke Stirton, Ben Atkinson, Ian Madsen, Daniel Sayre, Jeremy Cross, Sam Walsh.
