BETHANY, Mo. (June 6) – Justin Clark made the 10-hour trip from Hamersville, Ohio, to win the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car feature in front of a big crowd Saturday at Bethany Speedway.
A victim of mechanical issues in a mid-May start at Bethany, Clark took the lead at the drop of the green and stayed in front to the checkers, building a half-lap lead at one point.
Kyler Johnson started seventh and was in second by the three-quarter mark of the race but had nothing for Clark. Kenny Potter finished third. Dustin Reeh and Danny Clark rounded out the top five in fourth and fifth.
Clark is coming off a three-win 2019 campaign and will make one more racing trip out west before tour action starts closer to home.
Chase Rudolf was the IMCA Modified winner and 10th starting J.J. Baumli was best in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car main. Tyler Inman raced from sixth in winning the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature.
