ATLANTA-Despite finishing outside the top five for the first time in four races, Joey Clanton and the echosource83.com Pontiac moved from tenth to eighth in the points. This jump was enough to give the Steve Dale Motorsports team sole possession of Pat Schauer Memorial Rookie of the Year points lead.

"We made some changes in trying to anticipate what the track might do, and then the track didn't change the way we thought it might. The car just didn't handle well off the corners," said Clanton.

Although the Steve Dale Motorsports team has its eye on the Pat Schauer Memorial Rookie of the Year award, they are not letting the rookie race dictate how they race.

"From the start we have stayed with our game plan and the goals we set at the beginning of the season. Our basic plan is to be competitive at every race," commented Dale Motorsports team manager Rich Bodmer. "We would like to win a race and win the Pat Schauer Memorial Rookie of the Year title. We feel that we are capable of doing both. If we accomplish those two goals, we will credit our original game plan."
