So, to be able to get our first victory together so quick is something pretty cool,” Clanton said. “Our car is getting better every time that we hit the track. With this team and crew that I have in place, now I can focus on what tweaks need to be done to the car, instead of having to worry about turning the wrenches. That’s made a huge difference.
“This was a great last week, and now I’m looking forward to racing in my dad’s memorial race this Saturday at Senoia. Words can’t express what this race means to me, and I’m going to do everything in my ability to win it again.”
