Bobby Clark Takes Top 305 Power Ranking – See the Top 100!

The Wheatley Chronicles – Volume III, No. 85

Lonnie Wheatley, TULSA, Okla. (December 15, 2015) – In the annual battle for the top spot in 305 Sprint Car Power Rankings presented by Dodge City Raceway Park between Ohio and North Texas, Bobby Clark finally turned the tables in the Buckeye direction by capturing this year’s number one ranking.

Clark edged Texas shoe Chad Wilson by a meager five-point margin for the top spot.

After finishing eighth in the 2014 edition of the 305 Sprint Car Power Rankings, Fremont’s Clark racked up ten feature wins en route to this year’s Fremont Speedway track title as well as the FAST championship.

Fifth and fourth the previous two years, North Richland Hills’ Wilson missed out on the number one ranking by just a hair. Wilson compiled 11 feature wins en route to topping IMCA National points.

Another pair of Ohio drivers were next in the final rundown with Steve Rando and Mid-Season leader Jordan Ryan in fifth. Colorado’s Jake Bubak put together a strong second half of the season to round out the top five.

Texas was back in the mix with Marcus Thomas sixth in the final rankings with Ohio adding a fourth top-ten ranking with John Ivy in seventh for the third year in a row. After topping the 305 Power Rankings over each of the two previous years, Texas shoe Jeb Sessums was eighth.

Liberal, KS, native Jason Martin, now residing in Nebraska, was ninth with Pennsylvania’s Tyler Reeser filling out the final top ten. Eleventh-ranked John Carney II topped the 305 win charts with 16 triumphs.

Wilson, Ryan, Ivy and Sessums are the only four drivers that have ranked among the top ten over each of the past three years.

Clark topped a total of 641 drivers that earned points in the 560 events that awarded points toward this year’s 305 Sprint Car Power Rankings presented by Dodge City Raceway Park.
