Oregon, WI-Joey Clanton started the echosource83.com Pontiac deep in the ASA starting field and posted a strong fourth place finish at Madison Int'l Speedway Saturday night. For Clanton and the Steve Dale Motorsports team, it was the second top five and third top 10 finish in the last three ASA events.

"This nine race stretch is really grueling, but it has really brought out the best in the team. The tougher it gets the harder everyone works," said team manager and gas man Rich Bodmer. "We have had good setups, good pit stops and Joey has done a great job behind the wheel. Things have really been working well these last three races."

"I think we passed as many cars in the pits as we did on the track. Track position is so important and the crew is giving me some great track position to work with," said Joey. "You have to take care of your car in these long races. It is easier on the car and driver to lead than to follow. When we have these great pit stops, I'm I a good position to save the car."

As a result of the last three top 10 finishes, the echosource83.com, Zaxby's, AirGas, Racing Radios, Pro-Shocks Pontiac has moved into the top 10 in points. It also puts the team a close second in the Pat Schauer rookie chase, just 112 points behind leader Scott Wimmer.
