16-year-old posts hat trick at the Bullring
LAS VEGAS -Sixteen-year-old Spencer Clark won both twin 30-lap Super Late Model races along with the Pro/Master Legends Cars race at Dodge Night at The Orleans NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Clark qualified second behind Mike Cofer for the first Super Late Model race, but started fifth in the first 30-lap main event after a six-car invert. Clark took command from 2002 Super Late Model track champion Thane Alderman mid-race. The rookie was able to hold off a hard-charging Mike Cofer for his first Super Late Model career win. Cofer finished second followed by Alderman and Scott Gafforini.
In the second 30-lap feature, a four-car train of Chuck Trickle, Gafforini, Cofer and Clark battled for the lead. Clark passed to the inside of Gafforini in turn four on lap 27 to take the lead. The rookie was able to hold off the field to collect his second career win. Rick Rochell finished second followed by Gafforini and Cofer.
In between the Super Late Model twin mains, Clark competed in the 25-lap Pro/Master Legends Cars race. The Pro driver took the lead from Master driver Dennis Lovelady on the second lap and maintained his lead to post a win. Lovelady was the top finishing Master driver with a second-place finish. Master drivers Rick Rogas and Craig Stewart finished third and fourth, respectively.
"In the first race (Super Late Model), we got out front pretty early and just rode it to the end," Clark said. "Next week we look to come out and win again."
In the 25-lap Semi-Pro Legends Cars feature, fastest qualifier Jimmy Parker Jr. started six after the invert and was able to post his third victory this season. Alex Haase finished second followed by Tom Lovelady and Joey Mogar.
Eric Bauer collected his first Stewart Motorsports IMCA Modified win in the 25-lap main event. Jerry Walton finished second followed by Larry Gerchman and Don Williams.
Jonathan Mawhinney posted his eighth win in the 10-lap Bandolero Cars feature event. Kyle Huender finished second followed by Jeremiah Wagner and Sarah Chelberg.
In the 20-lap Thunder Roadsters presented by Tri-State Petroleum and VP Racing Fuels feature, Dave Green took the checkered flag to post his ninth win. David Anderson finished second followed by Matt Ross and Barry Yost.
Gary Bodell posted his second 7-Eleven Bullring Bombers win in the 40-lap feature.
