Matt Brabham completed a weekend sweep Sunday of the Stadium SUPER Truck events held at The Raceway at Belle Isle.

Brabham, who won Friday’s opening race, dedicated the victory to injured driver Matt Mingay, who was hurt during Saturday’s Stadium SUPER Truck race that was abandoned after the third lap.

Mingay was rushed to hospital with facial injuries and remains there in a serious, but stable, condition.

“It was great to get the win today and really make it two from two, but our thoughts are with Matt (Mingay) and his wife Sheena," said Brabham. “It was a crazy weekend and all our thoughts and prayers are with Matt and his family. We were racing for him today.

“We were so happy to see him taken off the critical list, but obviously he has a tough road ahead of him for a while and we all just hope his recovery is a quick and as successful as possible."

E.J. Viso finished second and fellow Australian Paul Morris finished third.

Brabham was a replacement driver for series boss Robby Gordon in the Arctic Cat entry for the weekend. Gordon was in Mexico competing in the running of the Baja 500 off-road race.
