Spencer Clark has turned thousands of laps at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. But until Monday afternoon, all of those laps had been confined to the 3/8-mile Bullring and the road courses. Monday, the 18-year old Clark got his first taste of the 1.5-mile superspeedway as he took some test laps in preparation for his NASCAR Busch Series debut in the March 11 Sam's Town 300. Clark, who has competed in Legends and Super Late Models at the Bullring, said the experience on the superspeedway was not as different as he thought. "It felt about the same as any other race car," Clark said. "The only difference is it felt like I was going a lot slower even though I was going a lot faster." Monday's test was simply a chance for Clark to get seat and track time. The Busch car he will run March 11 is not ready, so he spent most of the day turning laps in a NASCAR West Series car. "When we come back it will be a different ballgame," said Clark. "We'll have the right car and the right engine." Though Clark is excited to race at LVMS in March, he recognizes that success will not be measure with by a first place finish. "Of course I want to go out and win," said Clark. "But right now we're looking to qualify and get a top-10 finish." There were no official test speeds recorded on Monday and the test session was incident free. Clark, along with 45 other Busch Series drivers, is testing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Feb. 6-8 as part of the Busch Series edition of NASCAR Preseason Thunder Las Vegas. The public is invited to watch the test sessions free of charge each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets for the March 10-12 NASCAR Weekend are available by calling 1-800-644-4444 or logging on to www.lvms.com.
