Johnny Clark Wins "Segmented" Team EJP 150

Johnny Clark strung together three strong performances in Sunday's Pro All Stars Series Team EJP 150 to earn his first career PASS victory over Tracy Gordon and Jeff Taylor. In the first PASS event to feature the popular "monza-style" format with three fifty lap segments and two full field inversions, Clark tallied sixteen points for finishes of second, eleventh and third in the three segments. Gordon earned twenty points for his fifth, thirteenth, and second place results while Jeff Taylor had three top ten's (sixth, eighth and tenth), garnering twenty-four points to come home third.

Ben Rowe topped the thirty car field in Sunoco Race Fuels time trials with a 15.165 second clocking, twenty-three thousandths of a second better than Clark. Scott Mulkern, Gordon, Richie Dearborn, Cassius Clark, Jeff Taylor, Bill Whorff, Travis Benjamin and Kenny Wright rounded out the top ten time trialers. Travis Benjamin pulled the number one spot for the Dash redraw and wired the twelve-lap sprint to earn the pole for segment one. Taylor came home second with Rowe third and Kenny Wright fourth. Johnny Clark, Bill Whorff, Cassius Clark, Gordon,
Mulkern and Dearborn completed the top ten, setting the front of the field for the first segment.

Benjamin took off to a solid lead in Segment one, holding the point for the first thirty -four laps until Rowe showed his strength low, ducking under Benjamin for the lead. With Benjamin high on the race track the field
freight-trained by on the low side with Johnny Clark coming home second, Kenny Wright third and Jim McCallum fourth. Tracy Gordon was fifth with Taylor seventh, Benjamin in eighth, and the Whorffs, Bill and Jeremie, rounding out the top ten.

The field took a ten-minute break for service and adjustments and lined up inverted for segment number two. Dave Gorveatt took advantage of his newfound spot near the front of the pack to power into the lead and held off the advances of Scott Chubbuck and Dale Shaw to take down the segment win. Larry Gelinas finished fourth and Scott King fifth Cassius Clark, Donnie Whitten, Taylor, Darren Ripley and Chuck LaChance completing the top ten. PASS points leader Ben Rowe saw his shot at victory go away on lap fourteen when the double zero coasted to the pit area with driveline problems.

Another quick break and another full field inversion saw Scott Mulkern up front flanked by Jeremie Whorff. It was Sam Sessions' turn to show his strength on lap twenty- two and the 2001 series champ wrestled the lead from Mulkern. Meanwhile, the three main contenders for the overall win were locked in a battle of their own, picking their way up through the field. A string of late race cautions jumbled the pack and Taylor saw his shot at the title dashed on lap forty five when he got hung up on the outside groove. Gordon and Clark both took advantage
to give chase but it was Sammy's segment with Gordon second and Clark third at the stripe to claim the overall title. Richie Dearborn finished segment three in fourth with Gary Smith fifth. Bill Whorff, McCallum, Gorveatt, Larry Gelinas and Jeff Taylor completed the top ten.

Heat race wins went to Jim McCallum and Mike Rowe. Travis Kheil earned the Northern Race Tires Rookie of the Race award.
