Shawn Clark outlasts Jimmy Neese for the AMA Arenacross Lites win

AURORA, Ill., (Jan. 13, 2006) Kevin Johnson came to win tonight in Baltimore after a good start the Team Faith rider cruised by Suzuki’s Jim Neese in the first lap.  Johnson never let up scoring his fastest lap on lap 14.  Rockstar Suzuki rider Greg Schnell passed Jim Neese in the final turn to finish second.  Ohio’s Brock Sellards missed an opportunity to gain point on series leader Chad Johnson.  Chad suffered with the flu all week and was unable to get to the practice track during the week.  Johnson finished 5th in the main.  Sellards day started wrong when his chain came off in his heat race causing him to go to the semi final and ultimately a second row start in the main event.  On the first lap Brock stalled his four stroke Honda and was unable to restart for several laps. Sellards would go on to finish 11th.  Chad Johnson increased his lead on Sellard to 23 points.

In the AMA Arenacross Lites class Shawn Clark would out last Jim Neese and Jim Chester to win the main event.
