Clark finishes as No. 1 qualifier and winner of drag race

David Clark, of Lunenburg, recently won the Ladies Night 5.49 Index drag race at the Virginia Motorsports Park in Dinwiddie County. “In that race itself, I was the No. 1 qualifier, and then I won the race that night,” Clark said. The overall event featured an eight-car field and three rounds. Clark competed in the final against his father, Timmy Clark. The vehicle David Clark drove was a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro. He thanked the car’s owner, Wayne Gee, for the opportunity to race it. Pictured at right are, from left, Jeg Clark, Wayne Gee, David Clark, Timmy Clark and Billy Lyles.
