ATLANTA (April 2, 2001) - At South Boston Speedway, a track famous for its concession offerings, Joey Clanton will not be hungry for a fried bologna sandwich. Clanton and the Steve Dale Motorsports team are only hungry for one thing, another win for Steve Dale Motorsports in the 2001 season.
This Saturday evening, the South Boston Speedway will be host to the American Speed Association (ASA) Series for the running of the Textilease Medique 300. The 4/10-mile, semi-banked asphalt oval is a new track on the ASA circuit for the 2001 season. The track has been home to some of the most famous oval track drivers including Winston Cup standouts Jeff and Ward Burton.
Clanton and his team tested at the South Boston, VA facility last month, and feel that they have a car that will be in contention for victory. "We were really satisfied with our test session at South Boston," stated Clanton. "South Boston is a tight track, there isn't a lot of room to pass so qualifying is going to be important. We tested along with some really strong teams and we were competitive, so I think we have as good as chance as anyone for a victory."
Joey Clanton wants to put the No. 83 Zaxby's/Steve Dale Motorsports Chevrolet Monte Carlo into victory lane once again as they charge forward in their hunt for the ASA Series Championship. Currently the team sits third in ASA National points, just 70 points behind the leader.
Led by business entrepreneur, and racing enthusiast Steve Dale, Steve Dale Motorsports builds and races highly competitive winning cars. Based in Fayetteville, Ga., Steve Dale Motorsports has teams in both the American Speed Association and Legends Racing series.
South Boston Speedway will host the ASA Series this Saturday, April 7th. The Textilease Medique 300 will be televised live on The National Network (TNN), beginning at 9 p.m. EST.
