Clanton scores two Top-10s at East Bay Winternationals
Skipping the first three nights of racing, Shane Clanton unloaded his Skyline Motorsports No. 25 on Thursday to join the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the Wieland Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park (Gibsonton, Fla.).
With 64 Late Models signed in, Clanton timed in a quick lap in his qualifying group and followed that up with a heat race victory. For the $7,000-to-win feature, Shane never fell outside the Top-10 and crossed the line seventh.
The following evening, Shane recorded the third-quickest lap in his qualifying group before following that up with a heat race victory. Rolling off from the third row, Clanton ran inside the Top-10 for all 50-laps and finished seventh in the final rundown, his second Top-10 of the week.
An unfavorable forecast for Saturday’s Wieland Winternationals event washed out the LOLMDS speedweek finale.
