CONCORD, NC - The history and tradition of Summit Point Motorsports Park extends well beyond that of motorsports. The surrounding area, which can place a person in West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland in a matter of a few minutes in any direction, is also abundant in historical landmarks, including that of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. And while thoughts of Harpers Ferry typically create memories of water falls, rolling rapids, railroads, and historical buildings, it’s also rich in racing tradition with the likes of Scott and Zack Clark. The father/son combination rolled the karts out of their Harpers Ferry shop, promptly parking them in victory lane Four TImes during the Summit Point Nationals for the Dunlop/Xeramic National Road Race Series Presented by Russell Karting.
The duo, led by Scott, provided the first One/Two punch with the winning efforts in the CKI Yamaha Sportsman Medium Final on Saturday, besting Matt Michel, Tim Linthicum, and Scott Stauffer. The dup returned on Sunday for the same class and same effort, topping Michel once again, with Simon Whitnell and Joe Kennedy rounding out the top 5. The duo were almost letter perfect in their respective classes all weekend with Scott and Zack serving up another top 2 finish in the Yamaha Sportsman Heavy class on Saturday, with Scott taking the 4 race sweep on Sunday, while Zack finished 6th in the final race. Michel, Bill Holder, and Joe Dempsey were the top 5 Saturday in the first final, with Michel finally able to get to second in the Heavy Finale, while Linthicum, Holder, and Whitnell completed the top 5.
AJ Ellis from Ellicott City, Maryland was also another big winner over the weekend at Summit, taking wins in Leopard and WKA Sprint. Ellis’s first win in the WKA Sprint class on Saturday came over John Jezierski, Louie Magiera, James Leins, and JC Sanders. On Sunday, Ellis came back for the win in the WT Racing Leopard Sprint class, taking down Joseph Barron, Robert Wimmer, Scott Taylor, and Travis Waddell.
Robert Garland made the haul from Darlington, South Carolina memorable by taking down 3 wins over the weekend, including a sweep of the Clone LO206 Heavy class, while also scoring a win in the Animal Heavy class on Sunday, topping William Lewis, Rob Garland, Steve Johnson, and Ethan Beasom.
Rob Hindery from Port Orange, Florida, a runner-up to Garland in the Clone Heavy class, found his way to victory lane as well, taking the Clone LO206 Lite class on Saturday, then taking top honors in the Hoosier Racing Tire Animal Lite class on Sunday, topping Leon Austin Hodges and David Clevenger.
Other multiple winners included Taylor Farr of Roseville, Michigan with a sweep of the Junior Enduro Finals both days. And Travis Miller of Virginia Beach, Virginia scored duel wins in the Formula 100 Finals sponsored by KALL Racing and Millers Dynotime Racing. The always steady Louie Magiera took twins in the Yamaha Sprint category, while Donald Santini swept the 125 Shifter class, and Gary Sircy took both TaG Heavy finals.
