Visit CRI on the Web

Dateline: Braselton Ga:

Overview of this weekends events:
  • 3 track record qualifying times
  • 5 out of 6 A Main victories.
Clem Racing Inc. (CRI) had its best weekend of racing ever!! Stewart Haas racing Developmental drivers Michael Atwell age 10 and Tyler Clem age 8 competed in the USAC Eastern States Series Championship .25 Next Gen races this past weekend in Braselton Ga. With nearly 100 carsentering the event the competition was stiff.  Tyler qualified 2nd and sat on the outside pole of the Jr Honda race and passed pole sitter Chandler Smith midway thru the race and never looked back as Tyler went on to capture victory in the Jr Honda division A Main.

Tyler then set a new track record in the Briggs Jr Animal Division and sat on the pole of the A Main. As Tyler was passing a lapped car the two tangled knocking off Tylers chain forcing him to come to the pits for a quick repair.  Upon the restart of the race Tyler due to his pit and repair was lined up in the rear of the field, Tyler then managed to pick off the entire field except the leader who had a sizeable lead with 6 laps to go.  A yellow came out due to a wreck, with 5 laps remaining Tyler dove down low on the restart and went on to victory, picking up his 3rd Amain win of the weekend, and a first for Tylers young career. A night before Tyler competed in the QMA Jr Honda division in New Smyrna. Tyler won that A Main as well.

Michael Atwell had a record breaking weekend in Braselton as well. Michael set new track records in 2 of his 3 Divisions. Michael sat on the pole in all three of his races, and won the A mains in Light 160, Briggs SR Animal, and just got nipped on the last lap finishing second to Garrett Jones in the Light Briggs World formula.

Crew Chief Dan Atwell,and owner Bubba Clem, are proud dads with their sons performances this past weekend.  CRI returns to action this weekend in the 2010 QMA FLA STATES RACE this Sunday in New Smyrna Florida.
