Clark started in the automotive industry when he was in high school, working in a service station. He attended UTI in Phoenix, Arizona and graduated in 1994 with honors and an associate’s degree in automotive and diesel technology. He worked as a diesel technician for five years before becoming a drivability and electrical technician. In 2006, he got into service management and in 2010 he had the opportunity to own his own automotive transport business. He continued in that area until the end of 2011 when he became an automotive instructor. Clark loves racing, so when he’s not in the classroom he enjoys participating the NW Pro 4 Trucks and the NW Bump to Pass series.
