Josh Clemons Looking To Rekindle Sweet Nashville Memories

LEBANON, Tennessee (Wednesday, August 8, 2007) - - It's been over three years since ARCA RE/MAX Series driver Josh Clemons has recorded a top-10 finish at Nashville Superspeedway, but as the series returns to the 1.333-mile track this weekend, Clemons would like to rekindle the Nashville flame and score his third career top-10 finish Saturday.

Clemons, a native of New Albany, Indiana made his ARCA RE/MAX Series debut at the Lebanon, Tennessee based track in 2004 and produced smashing results. After qualifying, Clemons looked more like a veteran and netted the first of two top-10 finishes in his inaugural running.

Now, with limited runs in the series since, and a 11th place finish at Nashville Superspeedway in 2005, Clemons returns to the track hoping to put his Clemons Racing team back in the spotlight while also looking for his first top-10 performance since September 2004.

"Nashville Superspeedway is probably my favorite speedway track," said Clemons, driver of the No. 21 Ford Fusion. "We run very well each time we go there and this weekend should be no different. We didn't have any luck in our last outing at Kentucky Speedway, but we've picked up the pace considerably since then and we're looking for a platinum performance Saturday."

Instead of carrying their normal No. 41, the team has swapped numbers to hoist the famous No. 21 normally carried by the Jack Bowsher & Associates Motorsports camp. With the team unable to compete in Saturday's TOYOTA ARCA 150, the Clemons offered to help the team gather points for upcoming events this season.

"What an honor it is for our team to be carrying the No. 21 this weekend," continued Clemons. "While we strive to be competitors on the track, everyone knows the pros and cons of racing off the track and anytime we can help out a veteran like the Bowsher's, we're going to do it!."

Clemons Racing welcomes Grand Victoria Casino and Premier Mortgage Funding, Inc. on board their No. 21 Ford Fusion for the 14th ARCA race held at Nashville Superspeedway.

"I want to continue to thank our sponsors for supporting our team," sounded Clemons. "It's been a while since we've been on the track, so we're going to Nashville this weekend, looking to give no mercy and put ourselves and our sponsors in prime position for some exposure."

He continued, "I want to thank everyone on my Clemons Racing team for their long and countless amounts of hours this season. Everyone knows that if there is a race on the schedule besides Salem to shine, it's this weekend. Hopefully for a change, luck will be on our side and we'll storm to the front."
