Compton took a moment to catch his breath, before revealing how proud he was of Sienna.
“Well that’s a tough act to follow, I can promise you,” Crompton said.
“I feel like saying, ‘Gentlemen start your engines off the back of that’.
“Well done, Sis.”
Sienna to Neil Crompton. After the year that family has had what a beautiful moment. Tears in my eyes. #RepcoSC

Neil Crompton overcomes cancer to return
The occasion marked Family Day at Eastern Creek and it was a special moment for Crompton after having only just returned to broadcast after taking time away due to health reasons.
Crompton was diagnosed with prostate cancer earlier in the year and underwent surgery.
Fortunately, the Supercars Hall of Famer announced the cancer had been successfully treated.
Crompton was absent from broadcast since May, but recently returned when the events were moved to Sydney.
On the track, Anton De Pasquale won race 26 of the championship on Saturday.
The next day, rookie Will Brown won his first ever Supercars race in the SuperSprint finale.
