CCSDS: Wallace Weaves to $10,000 Clarksville Summer Nationals
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - July 9.
Wendell Wallace certainly has Clarksville Speedway figured out after winning the
DirtCar Summer Nationals event Saturday night at the north central Tennessee
track, where the Batesville, Arkansas veteran ha sfound success before.
Wallace, who won both nights of the famed
"Toilet Bowl Classic" at the Tennessee track in 2009, worked around Shannon Babb in the midst of lapped
traffic to take command near the midpoint of the 40-lap main event. The Batesville, Ark., driver never looked
back, holding Babb at bay over the final 27 circuits to claim the $10,000 win.
Babb claimed second after starting on the pole, ahead of
fellow front row starter Terry English of Benton, Ky., , DIRTcar late model
rookie Kent Robinson of Bloomington, Ind., and Jack Sullivan of Greenbriar,
With his second consective runner up finish, Babb will extend
his point lead to 168 markers over Scott James of Lawrenceburg, Ind., and to 251 points over defending DIRTcar
Summer Nationals Champion Jason Feger of Bloomington, Ill., who finished 20th.
The DIRTcar Summer Nationals will return to action Saturday,
July 10 at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind.
