Every race car driver who races at the “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway dreams of one thing, to make it to victory lane at the famed Montgomery Fairgrounds track. Last Saturday, April 12 that dream was realized by second year wheelman Cody Clark from Dolgeville, NY as he won the 20-lap sportsman feature event.

After victory lane ceremonies were held the victory was protested and the motor in the car was “claimed” until it could be inspected to make sure that it was legal.
