Canaan Fair Speedway - 5/30/04

PASS 150


Johnny Clark Wins PASS 150

Johnny Clark inherited the lead on lap 73 of the PASS 150 at Canaan Fair Speedway and never gave it up to earn his second career Pro All Stars Series victory. Clark scored the trifecta at Canaan, beating out twenty eight others for the Sunoco Race Fuel Pole Award and winning the fast car dash to claim the number one starting position. “Sud’n Sam” Sessions mounted several challenges in the closing laps but had to settle for second and Tracy Gordon battled his way to a third place finish. Travis Kheil turned in a strong performance to finish fourth and 2002 Canaan Fair Champion Donnie Lashua earned the PASS/Northern Race Tires Rookie of the race award by finishing fifth. Florida Super Late Model ace Jason Boyd made his first PASS appearance a solid one in sixth and GeGe Gravel, Bobby Cabral, Walt Hammond and Rick Martin completed the top ten.

Clark served notice earlier in the day by turning in the only sub-fourteen second lap (13.925) in Sunoco Race Fuel time trials, just a tick faster than Boyd’s 14.015 run in Clinton Teague’s North East Recycling Monte Carlo. Tracy Gordon (14.020), Ben Rowe (14.034) Mike Rowe ( 14.103) Larry Gelinas (14.113) Eric Hudson (14.115) Cassius Clark (14.128) GeGe Gravel (14.145) and Scott Mulkern (14.163) all earned their way into the field on time. Clark’s streak of good fortune continued when he drew the number one spot for the fast car dash and led wire to wire to sit on the pole for the feature event. Scott Mulkern would line up next to Clark with Boyd, Gelinas and Mike Rowe third through fifth. Hudson, Cassius Clark, Gravel and Ben Rowe completed the top ten.

Clark took command at the green but outside pole sitter Mulkern went for a ride off turn three on the opening lap, spoiling his prospects for a good finish. Jason Boyd was next to challenge but Larry Gelinas was on the move, passing Boyd for second and taking the top spot away from Clark on a restart. Gelinas was hooked up and built up a solid advantage during and extended green flag run.But contact with Jim McCallum in lapped traffic sent McCallum sideways and Gelinas into the wall, a fiery wreck that ended his day. Clark was now on the point once again with Mike Rowe alongside and Boyd third. Ben Rowe was up to fourth with Gordon fifth and Gravel sixth. Hudson, Kheil, Lashua and Richie Dearborn completed the top ten at the halfway mark. Mike Rowe kept the pressure on Clark but couldn’t shake him, and Jason Boyd came up to challenge once again after sneaking under Rowe on a restart at lap 92. Mike Rowe’s prospects for two in a row at Canaan ended on lap 108 when Rowe and Gordon tangled on the front stretch while racing for position. Gordon continued on to remain on the lead lap but Rowe was unable to get rolling before losing a lap. Sam Sessions took the second spot away from Boyd on the restart but Clark kept Sessions behind him, withstanding the pressure on several restarts to earn the win and solidify his place atop the early season PASS point standings.

In preliminary action, Dana Grover earned a hard-fought victory in the PASS Mods over Mark Lucas and Steve Reno. The Waterford Maine veteran led from start to finish but Lucas tried all the moves late in the race to take away the top spot, coming up just short. Steve Reno raced back to third after an earlier crash that sidelined Ben Rowe. Allan Moeller, Wayne Allard, Bob Taylor, Rodney Brooks, Katie Hagar, Rowe and Jason Taylor completed the finishing order.

The 75 lap Super Street Open provided great racing throughout the field. It was a battle of Super Street veterans at the front as Mitch Wendell snatched the lead away from Jim Renfrew on lap forty-six, going on to claim the $700.00 win and be first in line for the guaranteed starting spot in October’s $6,000.00 to win DNK New England Street Stock Championship. Ron Bolduc chased the top two home for third followed by J.R. Baril, George Baldwin and Lee Weldy. Chris Correll went home a winner in Allstar Race Truck action with Jeff Hallquist second and Pete Yeatman third.

The Pro All Stars take a one week break before heading to Unity Raceway for the $25,000.00 to win DNK Select 250 on June 13th. Over sixty entries are confirmed for the richest Pro All Stars Event of the 2004 season.
