LOCAL NEWS — Clark Crew BBQ won top honors last night at the 31st annual Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue. It’s their fifth time to compete and first Grand Champion win.

They traveled all the way from Yukon, Oklahoma to earn $25,000, braggin’ right for the year, and a guaranteed invitation to defend their title next year.

“It’s just amazing, really.  We’re completely thrilled to win The Jack,” said Pitmaster Travis Clark. “At every event we compete in, we try to be as consistent as possible.  We felt great about our entries this year at The Jack, so we were just really hopeful that the judges liked them enough for us to be successful.”   

Travis credits fierce competition on the KCBS sanctioned circuit as a secret to his team’s success. Led by Travis and his wife, Kimberly, the team began competing in 2013. They’ve amassed 650 Top 10 awards since then, including the overall title at the 2017 American Royal World Series of Barbecue.

It was close this year, with three team scoring above 700. Here’s a list of the final standings:
