Grabowski defends Charlie Clark Title as Phillips and Sobbing take segment Wins
By Anthony Ainslie

The tenth annual Silver Dollar Nationals I-80 Speedway kicked off Wednesday night with the rescheduled Charlie Clark Memorial.
After the Charlie Clark Memorial race, which was originally scheduled for Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, was scheduled, the race was the opening act of the now four-day Silver Dollar Nationals weekend. A field of 32 modifieds dueled it out on the high banks of I-80 for a spot in the 22-car field for the main event.
The 44-lap feature was split into twin 22-lap segments with passing and finishing points determining the overall champion. The race also had a 2 minute and 22 second pit stop on the front stretch of the track.
The first segment saw Terry Phillips jumping out to the lead. As the race progressed, Jake O’Neil and Dylan Smith worked their ways to the front. Meanwhile, at the front of the field, Jordan Grabowski and Jacob Hobscheidt were having a competitive race for the second spot.
Going into the pit stop, Phillips took the win in segment one while Grabowski and Hobscheidt took second and third. Dylan Smith and Jesse Sobbing rounded out the top five while Jake O’Neil raced from 18th to finish sixth.
After the pit stop, the top 12 finishers were inverted. Drama hit three drivers as Phillips, Smith and O’Neil were sent to the rear of the field. after not being able to finish their pit stops in the allotted time.
In the second and final segment, Jordy Nelson led the first four laps before Jesse Sobbing took over the top spot following a caution for a stopped car in turn one.
After another quick yellow flag, the race went green from that point on to the end. Jordan Grabowski worked his way back to the second spot and took a couple of shots trying to take the lead from Sobbing. Sobbing was quick to counter and quickly took the racing line away to stay in front.
Sobbing went on to lead the rest of the way to score the win with Grabowski coming in second. Jake O’Neil charged from 19th to finish third while Jacob Hobscheidt took fourth, and Terry Phillips rounded out the top five after starting clear back in 21st position.
At the end of the race, with two runner-up finishes, Jordan Grabowski was crowned the 2020 Charlie Clark Memorial champion defending his title and winning the race for the third time in his career.
