Josh Clemons Forced To Withdraw From Nashville
Lebanon, Tennessee - - ARCA RE/MAX Series rookie Josh Clemons announced today that his rookie Clemons Racing team will be forced to withdraw from the Waste Management 200, as their engine they planned to take to the event is still out of commission.
"This turn of events is unfortunate," said the driver of the No. 41 United States of Mind Ford Taurus. "I was really looking forward to getting back on the track and overcome these recent engine problems, but I guess we'll just wait a little more before we return to the track."
Clemons was pumped about heading to Nashville, as in his ARCA RE/MAX Series debut back in the spring, the Indiana native punched out a solid ninth place finish, after starting seventh.
"Nashville is a track that I really like. We were heading back to the track looking to score a top-five finish as a team but we'll concentrate on our next event. I just hate this for all of our sponsors," added Clemons.
It is unknown at this time when the Clemons Racing team will return to the track.
The Waste Management 200 is the 16th of 22 events on the 2004 ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule. This weekend will mark the second time the teams have competed at Nashville Superspeedway this season. First round practice is on tap Friday morning with qualifying also on the agenda this Friday afternoon August 13th, with the race set to take the green flag Saturday, August 14th. The Speed Channel will broadcast the race live, starting at 1:00pm CST.
The ARCA RE/MAX Series starts off a double-header at Nashville on Saturday. Following the event, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will prepare for their event which is slated to start at 4:00pm CST.
