Clanton Hustles echosource83.com Pontiac to Fourth Place Finish
ATLANTA - After a dismal qualifying effort, Joey Clanton started 31st in the 34-car field, but was able to bring the echosource83.com, Racing Radios, Pro-Shocks Pontiac home strong, with a fourth place finish in the ASA Iowa 250 at Hawkeye Downs Speedway Saturday afternoon.
"We had a loose car to start, and then the track loosened up during qualifying, which is not a good combination. Though starting that far in the back like we did gave me plenty of time to work on my patience," said Clanton with a smile. "We just took our time and picked them off one at a time. With 40 laps left, it was time to make some moves, but we had used up our left side tires and we couldn't go quite as far as we had wanted to."
With a top 10 finish at Jennerstown, and sporting a new sponsor on the Steve Dale Motorsports Pontiac, the team was ready, willing and able for the Iowa 250 at Hawkeye Downs.
"We knew we could run strong here after a second place finish earlier this year," commented team manager Rich Bodmer. "To be able to start 31st and post a fourth place finish is a tribute to Joey and the whole team. We wanted to give our new sponsor, echosource83.com, a good run the first time out and that is just what the team did." echosource is an Atlanta based internet company that is the premier online source for nutritional supplements and is forming an online community that is dedicated to the health and well being of it's members and visitors alike.
