Restarts were kind to Johnny Clark Sunday at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.

 

Clark went four-for-four on late-race restarts and led the final 122 laps to capture his fourth Southern Maine Chrysler Dodge Jeep 300.

 

“It’s so emotional with my two girls here,” Clark said.  “It’s the first race that they’ve both been at, and daddy won, so it’s really cool.  When I saw that white flag, man it felt good.”

 

Clark overtook Cassius Clark, who led 163 of the first 178 circuits, on the outside after a four-tire stop on lap 177.

 

“He was certainly better than us on the race track in certain areas, but we were better in other areas,” Johnny Clark said.  “They say it’s always one thing to catch someone and another thing to pass, and that holds true.  As long as I kept doing what I was doing, I thought we would be fine.”

 

Cassius Clark stalked Johnny Clark for the top spot between laps 186 and 248, but was forced to pit and repair a dragging fuel-vent hose during a lap-249 caution.

 

“With 50 laps to go, starting at the tail end, I just couldn’t get back up there,” Cassius Clark said.

 

Mike Rowe overcame a Lucky Dog and charged to a runner-up finish. With the result, Rowe unofficially clinched his first Pro All Star Series North championship at 65 years old.

 

Joey Doiron raced inside the top five for the second half of the event before edging Cassius Clark and Kelly Moore for a podium finish.

 

The race was slowed seven times for cautions, while 10 of 32 competitors finished on the lead lap. The 300-lapper was completed in one hour, 56 minutes and 32 seconds.
