Shane Clanton Scores Win and Big Gator at Volusia
Zebulon, Georgia (02/27/17) – After a rough start to the year one weekend earlier, Shane Clanton kicked things into high gear during the 46th annual DIRTcar Nationals in his #25 Super K Express/ Capital Race Car/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
During the course of four events at Volusia Speedway Park, Shane claimed a $10,000 win in addition to the “Big Gator” for winning the overall point’s title.
On Monday Shane Clanton returned to action at Volusia Speedway Park (Barberville, Florida) for the opening night of the 46th annual DIRTcar Nationals. With 43 cars registered, Clanton followed up the 3rd-fastest time in his qualifying group with a 3rd-place finish in his heat to lock his spot into the A-Main. With $7,000 on the line, Shane charged through the field six spots in the 30-lapper, scoring a 4th-place finish behind Chris Madden, Brian Shirley, and Tyler Erb with Dennis Erb Jr. rounding out the Top 5.
Battling through dense fog in the early laps of the A-Main, Shane held the top spot until lap 23 when race officials made the decision to end the race due to the limited vision. Scoring his first victory of the season and a $10,000 payday, Eric Wells, Tim McCreadie, Rick Eckert, and Brian Shirley completed the Top 5 finishers in the weather-shortened, main event.
“We didn’t have the run that we would’ve liked in the final night at Volusia, but it was still a great week for our team,” said Clanton. “We battled new-car blues all weekend at Screven, but we were able to get things really rolling at Volusia. I just want to thank my team, my sponsors, and all of my fans for their great support.”
The next event for the team is currently up in the air. He will resume action with the WoO Craftsman Late Model Series late in March with a swing through Mississippi, Arkansas, and Texas. However, he may enter some other events earlier in the month as weather permits. For the latest team plans please visit www.ShaneClanton25.com .
