 Jason Clark Wins Thunder Cars at Mt. Lawn


July 18, 2007 - Jason Clark of Greensboro picked up his first feature win of 2007 in the Dependable Drywall Thunder Car division Saturday night at the Mt. Lawn Speedway.

Tom Nixon of Daleville took the lead of the race at the drop of the green flag and looked to be on the way to his first feature win. But a yellow on lap 13 for a crash involving Bill Clark of Rushville and Kevin Claborn of Cambridge evaporated his big lead. On the restart, Bill Hasson of Indianapolis, making only his second start at Mt. Lawn, got the lead and led for two laps. Morristown’s Brett Marcum took over for the next five laps. Clark got the lead on lap 21 and led the rest of the way. Marcum finished second, followed by Claborn, Ryan Amonett of New Castle, Hasson, Pam McConnell of Shirley, Clark, Ronnie Williams of New Castle, Eddie King of Kennard and Chris Bolyard of Rushville.

Clark took a reverse victory lap in memory of his car builder, Ramo Webb, of Greensboro, passed away earlier this year.

Claborn set fast time and a new track record for the Thunders at 18.467. Clark won the dash, and the heats went to Marcum and Nixon.

Knightstown’s William Mefford continued his winning ways in the Motion Motors Late Model by winning the 30-lap feature event. Mefford, who set fast time in time trials at 16.832, took the lead on lap seven from Doug Hinshaw and led the rest of the way. Dean Morris of New Castle led the first four laps, giving the lead to Hinshaw on lap five. Greensboro’s Scott Knepley finished second, followed by Jeff Marcum of Morristown, Hinshaw, David Fox II of Markleville, Terry Cater of New Castle, Scott Runion of Mooreland, Chad White of Greenfield, Dale Amonett of New Castle and Bill Pierce of New Castle. Knepley won the Razzles Dash for Cash with Marcum and Amonett winning the heats.

The Collins Auto Service Hornets went to Chris Jennings of Richmond for the second week in a row. Jennings started dead last in the 20- car field and got a huge break when several cars got together in turn one on the first lap. Starter David Hill did not throw the yellow flag and allowed the race to continue.

Although no car stopped as a result of the mix up, Jennings finished the first lap in sixth position. A couple more restarts gave the lead to Jennings on lap two, and he led the rest of the way. Kenny Lee of Anderson finished second, followed by Scott Tungate of New Castle, Keith Morris of Mt Summit, Russ Humes of Middletown, Jerry Small of Arcadia, Les Tolliver of Pendleton, Mark Dulworth of Middletown, Aaron Gray of New Castle and John Massengale of New Castle. Fast time went to Jennings at 20.034. Lee won the Collins Auto Service Dash for Cash, and the heats went to Tungate, Humes and Lonnie Boling of New Castle. In Mini Cup action, Brian Ayers of Carmel won the feature, followed by Geoff Gerline of Shelbyville, Carl Colbert of Noblesville, Chuck Colbert of Noblesville, Patrick Morris of Arcadia and Troy Morris of Arcadia. Ayers also won the heat.

Scott Razor of New Castle beat Gary Branscum of New Castle in the street drags.

Next week Motion Motors Late Models, Dependable Drywall Thunder Cars, Collins Auto Service Hornets, Mini Cups and Street Drags return for more action.
