Jackson runner-up in return, Visage posts career-best in third
Nothing like a walk in the park victory for Australian Street Stock guru Mitchell Clark. Particularly, Limaland Motorsports Park.
That’s exactly what Clark set himself up for Wednesday night, setting fast-time in Qualifying and leading every lap of his Heat Race and the 30-lap Feature for his first career Chevy Performance Street Stock League Feature win on iRacing.
Nobody seemed to have anything to challenge the Track Tech #0 on his way to Victory Lane, as Clark rode the high side for much of the race, kept his nose clean and made the good restarts count.
League regular and two-time winner in Season 2, Tyler Jackson, rejoined the roster this week after missing last week’s race over the holiday break and came back with his A-game, placing second after a tremendous battle for the runner-up spot in the final laps.
He and former League winner Lewis Clark joined third-place Paul Visage and Larry Barber Jr. with less than five laps remaining in a slide-job fest for position. Inside, then back to outside Jackson and Clark swapped spots before Visage joined in as the white flag waved. When all was said and done, Jackson was able to pull the crossover move out of Turn 4 on Lap 30 to claim second, while Visage slipped by up high to take third.
“Once you get two or three guys battling for second, that leader just runs away from us,” Jackson told announcer Rick Eshelman in the DIRTVision post-race interview. “I think if all 30 laps were green, we might’ve had something.”
