JEREMY CLEMENTS RETURNS TO THE MUSIC CITY FOR THIS WEEKEND'S "PFG LESTER 150"
SPARTANBURG, SC (April 12, 2006) - Jeremy Clements, the 21-year-old South Carolina native with a calm demeanor and steely determination, will return to the Music City for this weekend's ARCA RE/MAX Series "PFG Lester 150" at Nashville Superspeedway.
Clements' last appearance at the 1.33-mi. oval came in April 2004 with a strong eighth place finish. That event almost became the final ARCA RE/MAX event for Jeremy as he was seriously injured in July when a part of the driveshaft assembly broke and pierced the cockpit of his #51 dirt late model while racing in North Carolina. While many would have let the situation claim the best of their competitive spirit, Clements was determined that he would not only race again but be better than he was before.
The Clements-owned #3 Georgia Boot/Harrison's Workwear/One Stop Convenience Stores/House of Power Chevy Monte Carlo team competed at the 2006 ARCA RE/MAX season opener at Daytona International Raceway and Jeremy piloted his former Aaron's "Dream Machine" from its 30th place starting position to a 13th place finish amongst legions of veterans and NASCAR development teams. The team recently ventured to Nashville Superspeedway with fifty-four other teams for the open practice session and ranked 18th on the charts during test runs.
"We're looking forward to returning to Nashville and hopefully will carry some of the momentum from Daytona back there," stated Clements. "We had a solid run last time and have a better car this time around. We just need to get back into the rhythm of racing because we have only had a few events to reconnect as a team and on the track since I was cleared to return to racing. We have had good runs each time but had a few mechanical problems late last year but I think we got everything fixed in the off-season and can go out there and show 'em all what we're all about in South Carolina."
This weekend's "PFG Lester 150" marks the second event of the 2006 ARCA RE/MAX Series tour and will be televised live on SPEED at 1:30pm (EDT) on Saturday, April 15th.
