Friday 4th January 1991
Sprint car ace also known as ‘Hungry’ Clark (88), died. Originally a motorcycle exhibitionist, this showman of a driver was also good in dirt and midget cars. Retired after a crash in 1936. Clark was quite an analytical driver who didn’t tend to take too many risks, but he still had a fair amount of natural speed. Clark continued to take an interest in the sport for the rest of his life.
