Johnny Clark Ties Record With Third Straight PASS Win
Wins Father's Day 150 At Unity Raceway
Team PR Report
Johnny Clark of Farmingdale, Maine, won his record-tying third straight PASS North Series race on Sunday, leading the final 114 laps virtually unchallenged en route to victory in the Father's Day 150 at Unity Raceway.
The win was the fourth of Clark's career at Unity, and his second on Father's Day.
"It's really kind of unbelievable," said Clark, who now has 22 career series victories. "We were going for three in a row, and I figured we'd blow it here because everyone always expects us to be so good at this place. I didn't know if we'd be able to pull it off."
Clark opened his streak of consecutive wins with a 150-lap win at White Mountain Motorsports Park last month and then took the Pro All Stars Series 200 at Speedway 660 in New Brunswick last weekend. He's tied the series record of three consecutive wins set by both Ben Rowe (2001) and Sam Sessions (2002).
He will have the opportunity to break the record when the series heads to Canaan, N.H., on July 3.
Clark started 11th and moved all the way to third in the span of just 15 laps. He took the lead from Sanborn on a lap 37 restart, moving around him in the preferred outside groove.
Sanborn would prove to be Clark's only challenger for the rest of the day, but Clark held him off on a couple of restarts in the final stages of the race -- including one with four laps remaining.
"I knew Trevor was going to be tough, because he was really good in practice all day," Clark said. "It's just that the car was so good, I was able to get it done."
Clark previously won at Unity Raceway in 2007 and again in May of 2009. He won the lucrative DNK Select 250 at the track in 2004.
