Jim Clark Does NASCAR

The versatile Jimmy Clark could drive anything - and loved to test his mettle with the best of them. Like A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti, Dan Gurney, Juan Pablo Montoya and Lloyd Ruby, Clark loved to try his hand at any form of racing. Not only that but he was good, winning in a variety of cars: Formula One, sports cars and IndyCars. A footnote in his career was his foray into the world of NASCAR at Rockingham, North Carolina in 1967. Driving for John Holmon and Ralph Moody, Clark tested his skills in the big stock cars and found the adventure intriguing, albeit a struggle. He expressed a desire to return, but this was not to be as he was killed the following year in a Formula Two race in Germany. This article originally appeared in the Allstate 400 program.
