CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (March 9) — Racing far from his Forest, Va., home, Walker Arthur’s journey paid off Saturday at Clarksville Speedway with a victory in the Pro Crate Racers of America opener. Arthur’s flag-to-flag victory came in Tuckassee Toilet Bowl Classic at the quarter-mile oval. Jeff Walston of Paducah, Ky., finished second in the main event followed by Evan Taylor of Woodlawn, Tenn. Kolby Vandenbergh of Ashland, Ill., and reigning PCRA champion Bobby Dauderman of Alhambra, Ill., rounded out the top five. Jesse Stovall of Galena, Mo., crossed the finish line in the second spot, but he was disqualified for failing to report to postrace technical inspection. Cautions appeared for a Credence Mott-John Minon collision on the 10th lap, then again on lap 15 for Gavin Schmidt.
