With 46 Late Models on grounds for the three-day event, Clanton secured his spot into the $6,000-to-win preliminary feature with a fifth-to-second run in his heat. Starting in sixth, Shane was involved in a multi-car tangle on the second circuit that dropped him back to 14th when the checkered flag flew.
For a pair of heat races on Friday, Shane followed up a fourth-place finish in the first round with a third-place performance in his second heat.
With passing points from Friday’s heat races positioning him on the sixth row for Saturday’s $50,000-to-win USA 100 A-Main, Clanton was an early retiree from the 100-lap affair on lap 37. He was scored 23rd on the final rundown.
