The Pit Pass: Blair wins tour stop in Marion


MARION CENTER — Michael sweeps Clinger Memorials, Blair wins points title

HAMMETT — Eriez Speedway hosted the Joanne Clinger Memorial Sunday night. The Clinger name may sound familiar as the Clinger family had the Chris Clinger Memorial last week at Raceway 7. Joanne, the Mother of Chris and wife of Jim, was a well-loved car owner and race fan at Eriez. Joanne passed away a few years ago.

The winner of the Joanne Clinger Memorial might sound familiar too. Rich Michael of Ishua, N.Y. won the Chris Clinger Memorial earlier this month. Then came to Eriez and grabbed Joanne’s race as well.

Jim Clinger was able to attend Sunday Night as he watched his friend win the feature.

In the Super Late Models, Robbie Blair of Centerville won his eighth feature of the year at Eriez and also claimed his very first track championship there.

And Max Blair made it two wins this past weekend, following up Saturday’s win at Marion with Sunday’s FASTRAK Late Model feature at Eriez. It was his sixth feature of the year at the track. On this night, he had his father Robbie chasing him. And at times, the father and son duo were racing side-by-side. But it was Max pulling away from the elder Blair to the checkered flag.

In the Limited late Models, Steve Kania took over the lead at lap 12 and cruised to the flag stand for the win.

In the Street Stocks, Pat McGuire started on the front row and led the entire event to the checkered flag.

Finally, in the Challengers Joe Beach won his second feature of the year.

Until next week, take your family to the races.

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
