Results 8/3/19 Harold Claar Memorial Race

It was a very special night at Red Rock as we honored the memory of karting legend, mentor and friend Harold Claar. Harold was the father of Chris Claar whom most karters in the tri-state area have race with at some point in the last 30yrs. There were a total of 63 karts (20 Heavy Clones) on hand for the evening. Since Chris race the Clone division the most in later years he chose this class for the iconic memorial race.
There were 3 heats for the Clones won by the #475 Hank Moore, #8 of Jared John and the #77 of Andy Lazeration. We advanced the top 3 from each heat to a dash for cash paying $100.00 to win and to set the top 9 spots for the feature. Hank Moore was your dash winner and securing the pole for what started off as a disastrous feature.

As the 20 karts took the track for the start of the feature 2 by 2 Chris and Derrick Claar took the flag stand to give the green flag to start the race. As the karts came out of turn two on the first lap several karts running in the middle of the pack bunched up causing the #89 of Ian Campbell to flip coming to a rest upside down. The race was immediately red flagged. Ian was taken to the hospital by the Juaniata Valley Ambulance where he has suffered a broken collar bone and the muscle is torn. He will be seeing an Orthopedic Surgeon tomorrow. He gave permission to allow me to keep everyone updated. He wanted to say thank you for all of the text messages and love, there is no community like the karting community. Racing resumed, with 2 EMT’s present with medical equipment and the drivers voting to do a single file restart. On lap 9 the race was slowed by another red flag for the 7D of Ryan Little who flipped upside down. Ryan however was able to get back in his kart and rejoin the field ultimately finishing the race. When checking on him this week he said he’s just a little sore but ok and his thoughts and prayers are with Ian. As lap money was also sponsored for each of the 30 laps of the feature, Hank Moore grabbed the first 5 laps as the leader. On lap six Jared John overtook Hank for the lead. Lap by lap the 17B of Quentin Graham was making his way to the front of the pack and on lap 18 Graham passed John for the lead. Quentin lead the remaining laps taking home the large commemorative Chris Claar trophy, 539.00 (7x77) first place prize money, lap money, the Hard Charger Award (+11 positions from his starting position) and the title of winning the 1st ever Harold Claar Memorial Race. Following Quentin to the checkered was Moore, John, #72 of Kim Taylor and rounding out the top 5 was the E1 of Isaac Caretti.

Also Saturday, running the Watermelon Crawl twin heats for 200.00 to win was the Sr Champs. **Remember any Sr Champ that ran Red Rock can go to Cove View this coming Saturday and the highest finisher (must be in the top 5) will win a 100.00 bonus from Red Rock/Cove View.**
Winning the two Sr Champ heats was the #00 of Cooper Corley. The first heat Cooper started 4th and the second heat he started 5th. With winning both heats Cooper started on the pole and kept the lead all the way to the checkered flag. Rounding out the top five were the #7D of Hunter DeHaven, #16 of Rebecca Ghantous, #84 of Joe Steiner and the #21 of Dawson Contrael.
