Windom, MN — (February 4, 2015) — Father/son team Doug and Justin Clark have been named the official flagmen for the National Sprint League in 2015. The South Dakota natives will be flagging the majority of races on the NSL schedule.
A boyhood friend of Doug Wolfgang, Doug Clark went from working on cars to flagging in 1979 at the Hartford Speedway in South Dakota. He has flagged for over thirty years at the Knoxville Raceway in Iowa and at Huset’s Speedway in South Dakota. He has worked a number of prestigious events including the King’s Royal at Eldora Speedway in Ohio and The World Finals at the Dirt Track in Charlotte, North Carolina.
After a brief racing career, Justin joined his father on the flag stand. For over ten seasons, he has assisted Doug at Knoxville with the 410’s, and is now the head flagman for both the 360 and 305 classes at Knoxville.
“It’s really important for us to have experience, credibility and fairness with the officials and people involved in the series,” says NSL founder Tod Quiring. “Having Doug and Justin Clark on the flag stand gives us those things. They will be doing our flagging this year at most of our venues, and we’re proud to have them on board.”
