Unity, Maine – The second annual Big John Phippen Memorial Race, presented by Clark’s Car Crushing, highlights a Father’s Day Weekend doubleheader Sunday afternoon at Unity Raceway. Twin 59-lap main events for Maine’s Fastest Late Model class, offering $1500 to the winner, make up the Phippen Memorial main event.
Phippen, of Town Hill, passed away two years ago minutes after climbing from his racecar at Speedway 95 in Hermon. He racked up many victories at Unity Raceway, Speedway 95 and Wiscasset raceway, and was a champion at all three oval tracks during his long and storied stock car racing career.
Topping the entry list for the event is Johnny Clark of Farmingdale, the most successful driver ever in the Pro All Stars Series. With six series championships racing with the East Coast’s fastest full-bodied stock cars, Clark returns to the site of a $25,000 victory several years ago.
