CLARK MAINTAINS NATIONAL FORD FOCUS POINTS LEAD WITH WIN

 

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CALIFORNIA (April 18, 2011) – 17 year-old Jessica Clark scored her first career USAC Ford Focus Midget Series victory by winning the feature at the Las Vegas Bullring on Saturday night.

 

Clark also is tied with her Ron Sutton’s Winner’s Circle teammate Brandon White atop both the USAC Western and National Ford Focus standings.

 

The strong start to the season puts Clark in contention to be the only female national champion in USAC history.

 

The weekend started off with Clark timing in fifth quick at 15.590 seconds around the three-eights mile oval.  Clark finished third in her eight lap heat race before turning attention to the 30 lap feature.

 

Much like her teammate Trevor Hunt did earlier in the night in the USAC Young Guns feature, Clark would win her first career main coming from the outside front row.

 

After Jimmy Moon led the opening lap of the race, Clark stormed to the lead.  The race went by with few cautions and Clark ran consistent laps throughout the event.

 

“I'm so excited to get my first win on my favorite track,” Clark said.  “After taking the lead in the second lap I buckled down, stayed intensely focused, and reminded myself to go deeper into the turn entries.  I tried to hit my marks every lap until I saw the checkered flag.”

 

Clark drove away to a comfortable 1.6 second advantage to take the convincing win over White, Ricky Bowers, and Moon to give Ron Sutton’s Winner’s Circle a clean sweep of the top four positions.

 

“Jessica definitely earned her first career win,” Driver Coach Ron Sutton said.  “Now that she has the first one out of the way, I have no doubt she is capable of winning many more races before the season is over!”
