FAST TIME FOR CLARK AT STOCKTON KEEPS HER ATOP NATIONAL POINTS
VILLAGE, CALIFORNIA (May 24, 2011) –
Jessica Clark continued her groundbreaking season, as the talented
female racer added a pole position at Stockton 99 Speedway on
Saturday night to her already impressive 2011 USAC Ford Focus Midget
season that has her leading the national standings.
The Southern California teen is a member of the Ron Sutton’s
Winner’s Circle program which develops drivers for a career in
motorsports. Clark drives in both the USAC Ford Focus Midgets and
the NASCAR S2 Sportsman divisions.
Although Clark’s primary focus heading into the season was her
transition to the stock car ranks, her early success in the USAC
cars has placed a spotlight on the driver. Clark topped the field in
qualifying on Saturday night, with a 13.667 lap around the
quarter-mile oval. The lap gave Clark her first career pole
position in a USAC Ford Focus.
The feature was a 30 lap affair compared with the 40 lap races the
previous week in Roseville. The invert placed Clark sixth on the
board with limited time to move forward. With only a few cautions in
the race, Clark was unable to make much progress through the field
logging a fifth place finish.
The finish was strong enough to maintain Clark’s lead in the USAC
National Ford Focus Midget standings along with leading the USAC
Western Pavement division. Clark is also ranked third in the USAC
NorCal Ford Focus Midgets after two race meetings.
“Jessica ran a fine race this weekend at Stockton,” Driver Coach Ron
Sutton said. “Her qualifying ability has improved dramatically
which is crucial for her to win the championship!”
