Shane Clanton Captures Billy Clanton Memorial Win

by Ben Shelton
ZEBULON, Georgia (May 17) – For the second-straight year Shane Clanton piloted his Weldbank Energy #25 Super K Express/ Capital Race Car/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model to the $5,025 victory in the Billy Clanton Memorial.

“To win dad’s memorial race for the second-straight year means so much me,” said an emotional Clanton in victory lane. “Cautions fell our way late in the race, and it allowed us to catch Riley (Hickman). I drove my heart out, and we were able to get past him to get the win.”

Running in the 2nd Annual Billy Clanton Classic, Shane Clanton made the trip to Senoia Raceway (Senoia, Georgia) on Saturday night for the Southern All Star Series (SAS) Super Late Model-special honoring his late father. Timing in 7th in a field of 26-cars, Clanton earned the 7th-starting spot for the main event. Battling for a $5,025 paycheck in the A-Main, Shane made the pass for the lead on Riley Hickman with 10-laps remaining going on to score his second straight victory and fifth overall of the season. Clanton was trailed by Chase Junghans, Riley Hickman, Richie Stephens, and Frank Heckenast Jr. across the finish line.

Full results are available at www.SASDirt.com.

The team will not race anywhere this weekend as they prepare for a World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series triple header over the Memorial Day weekend. On Friday, May 27 the action opens at Moler Raceway Park (Williamsburg, Ohio) with a $10,000-to-win event. On May 28-29 Shane will compete in the Jackpot 100, which will pay $8,000-to-win on Saturday evening and $10,000-to-win on Sunday night.

Shane is currently in second in the WoO points standings.
