John Wood to race limited ASALM touring schedule.

John Wood has announced that he will be racing a limited schedule in the ASALM touring series, driving the #51 car for Clifcorn Motorsports of Madison, Wisconsin. He will also be racing the full season schedule at Madison International Speedway in the ASALM series.

John finished the season last year driving the #45 car of Clifcorn Motorsports in the final 5 races of the season at MIS. This was the first time ever having driven a race car (drove truck at MIS for the previous 8 years. After only his second night in the car, he came up a race winner. This year is shaping up to be a tremendous year for the John Wood and the Clifcorn Motorsports team.

This all comes after having been thrown a curve ball by a fire that destroyed the building that housed the Clifcorn Motorsports race shop. All contents were destroyed. There was no insurance on the contents and Clifcorn Motorsports has managed to put together a new Lefthander Chassis / 2005 Ford Taurus with the help of Joe and Chad Wood of Wood Brothers Racing / Wood Brothers Fab Shop for the upcoming season but is still in need of sponsorship to offset the losses incurred in the fire.

Below is an excerpt from the news broadcast. Please note that there is a comment on the video saying that a car was being worked on as a cause of the fire. This was a car being worked on in another shop in the same building complex, not in our race shop.

Crews Battle Warehouse Fire

MADISON, Wis. -- Eight local fire crews battled a warehouse fire in Blooming Grove,

East of Madison, Monday afternoon.

The fire sent a large plume of smoke into the air and destroyed the rental warehouse on Sprecher Road and County Highway T. It was under control by about 6 p.m.

O'Malley's Roofing, Lynch Auto Body, Capital Paint and Clifcorn Motorsports all lost everything in the fire, News 3 reported.

John Wood, a driver for Clifcorn said it was hard to watch. "I thought about getting sick," he said. "We probably lost up to $100,000 of equipment in this fire." The cause is under investigation; however, officials said they suspect a car fire spread to the building. Damage is estimated at $250,000.
