Johnny Clark Claims First Win at White Mountain Motorsports Park

NORTH WOODSTOCK, N.H. — After 12 years of trying, Johnny Clark finally got what he wanted in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.

Clark led the final 37 laps of the PASS North Series 150 on Saturday night, claiming his 20th career series victory — and his first-ever at White Mountain Motorsports Park. The 4-time series champion recovered from a scrape with Richie Dearborn on a late-race restart before driving to victory lane.

“This feels so good,” Clark said of the win on the high-banked quarter-mile track. “Honestly, the way the car was, I felt like I had a dominant car the whole race. Man, this thing was just unreal.”

Louie Mechalides finished second, while Trevor Sanborn was third.

Clark started 17th in the 28-car field and cracked the top-5 by lap 50 — without the aid of a caution flag. On a lap 59 restart, he put the No. 54 Clark’s Car Crushing/Port City Racecars Chevrolet into third, and he eventually took the lead following the race’s final caution on lap 110.

On the lap 111 restart, Clark nosed ahead of Dearborn on the outside lane before the two cars made contact on lap 112. Clark washed up the turn three banking, but held onto second place — eventually running Dearborn down two laps later.

“I just can’t believe it’s taken that long to figure this place out,” Clark said. “I just can’t believe how awesome this is.”
