Here’s Johnny!
Groveton, NH - Johnny Clark reminded everyone in attendance Friday night at Riverside Speedway why he is a six time champion as he dominated the Pro all Stars Series first visit to the 1/4 mile since 2018. Clark, who has not been first to the checkers since 2016, fended off challenges from several drivers but was never seriously challenged in the 150 lap tilt. "It's been a long time since I have had a car that good," he exclaimed in victory lane, "it was fun, but there was oil or something on the track those last few laps and we almost slipped and gave it away."

As dominating as Clark was leading the entire 150 lap contest, it wasn't as easy as it looked. "We made wholesale changes after the first practice, and it was just terrible. I knew, we all knew after the second practice we had to put it back. It was not easy, there were a lot of changes. I'm glad we did!"

Clark was challenged early by Eddie MacDonald who seemed to maintain the torrid pace but not able to mount a bid for the point. Meanwhile 3 time 2020 winner Nick Sweet was making his way to the front, trying to balance the art of saving some tires while also trying to close the gap on the front runners from his 11th starting spot. "That's the trick, maintaining that balance while trying g to run them down but still have something left at the end. We are definitely happy with the finish."

Macdonald held on for the final podium spot while point leader coming into the race Travis Benjamin nailed down the fourth spot. Defending champion DJ Shaw rounded out the top 5. The race was slowed by a single caution on lap 91. Clark's win was career triumph number 40 on the all-time list as he bested a stout 17 car field.

Next up for the Pro All Stars Series is a return visit to White Mountain Motorsports Park on August 9th before a mid-August race at Oxford Plains speedway will lead up to the 47th Annual Oxford 250 the weekend of August 28th-30th.

Reno is Right

Nick Reno survived all challengers on a hot and sticky night to score his first career Ztriumph in Pass Modified action. 15 cars took the green flag at the high banked Groveton oval led by Reno as he made his third start of 2020. Despite five cautions, including one on the opening lap that involved point leader Tyler King and defending champion spencer Morse, Reno was up to the task. JR Baril, who has experienced some very hard luck in his previous 4 races, started outside pole and challenged Reno through the first 3 yellows before scrubbing the wall and fading during the midpoint of the race.

By Lap 30, King had worked his way back to the front and seemed poised to make a run at his 4th win of the year. King tried through two restarts to move alongside the 77 of Reno, even executing several well timed crossover moves, but Reno was ready for every move. "I tried hard to protect the bottom, a couple of times I was able to anticipate those moves and close the door. It was definitely a little easier when he went to the outside because I could let it run out a little more."

Baril was able to recover from a mid-race skirmish with the front stretch wall to get by King in the closing laps and mount one more charge on Reno before settling for the runner-up spot. King survived in third to extend his point lead as he edged out his closest competitor Justin Larson as he ran a steady uneventful race to come home fourth. Rounding out the top 5 was Spencer Morse who made two runs from the back after a pair of off track skirmishes put him to the rear.
