SWANSBORO, NC – Brandon Clements, who is the winningest driver in Carteret County Speedway history, clinched the track championship in style on Saturday night, with a victory.
Clements surrendered the lead early in the 50-lap race after starting on the pole – first to Eric Winslow then to Justin Carroll. With 11 laps to go, Clements made the pass to get back around Carroll to take the lead and the win – his fifth Late Model win of the year.
“This really means a lot to me,” an emotional Clements said in victory lane. “I was a little kid and my dad told me I was going to be a champion here. I’ve been here every year and been a champion [in Mini-Stocks] but really, this one’s good. We got this one.”
Carroll finished second in his first career Carteret County Speedway start while Joshua Yeoman finished third. Rounding out the top-five were Clay Jones and Eric Winslow.
