Clark Claims PASS North White Mountain Win

North Woodstock, NH — Johnny Clark kicked in the jets with 50 laps to go in Sunday afternoons Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North 150 at White
Mountain Motorsports Park, winning a side by side battle with DJ Shaw to take the lead on lap 131 and nip Shaw for his sixth PASS North win of 2011. Shaw led the majority of the 150 green flag laps but had to settle for second. PASS rookie Bryan Kruczek led his share of laps and raced home a strong third, with Alex Gingras and Lonnie Sommerville rounding out the top five.

For ten seasons Clark and his Clark’s Car Crushing team couldn’t find the key to PASS victory lane at White Mountain, but he ‘s now won 2 of his last three starts at the fast quarter mile. His victory coupled with points challenger Ben Rowe’s seventeenth place finish padded the defending series champions’ point lead. Rowe was caught up in an early race wreck that took the nose off RMR ride, destroying any chance of a win at one of his favorite speedways.

Shaw and Kruzcek were the show for much of the race. The pair shared the front row and from the drop of the green they battled tooth and nail, swapping the lead on several occasions and distancing themselves from the field. Kruczek took over the top spot on lap nine and kept it until lap 69 when Shaw made his move . At the crossed flags it was Shaw, and Kruczek out front with Sommerville, Gingras and Travis Benjamin all giving chase. Clark showed up in the top five at lap 85, picking off Gingras for fourth, Sommerville on lap 93 and Kruczek one lap later. Catching Shaw would be another matter though, as the Center Conway NH racer had his ride on a rail, and as the green flag laps ran down he was opening up a gap on Clark. But as so often happens, a yellow flag brought Shaw back to the field and the restart gave Clark the opportunity he needed to deny Shaw the checkers.

Clark’s margin of victory as just .338 seconds. The race was slowed by seven cautions, and twelve of the twenty two starters completed all 150 green flag laps. Kruczek, Shaw and Scott Dragon won their qualifiers.

PASS 400 weekend presented by Southern Maine Motors.com is up next, with the mid week special kicking off the festivities on Thursday September 15 at 5:45 PM. Friday is a day of practice for all divisions, Qualifiers are on Saturday and the PASS 300, PASS Sportsman 100 and PASS Mod 50 are slated for Sunday.
