In the dirt track world there are certain events that are known as the Dirt Track Crown Jewel events. One of the largest events in the country every year has to be the annual Late Model Dream at the famed Eldora Speedway.
To win the Dream is a dream – Shane Clanton
Shane Clanton dominated the event and entered into a very elite class of drivers that have won not only the Late Model Dream but also the World 100 at Eldora.
“To win the Dream is a dream,” said Clanton, whose best finish in five previous Dream A-Main starts was third in 2008. “It’s a hundred-thousand to win and it’s the biggest race we go to every year, so to win it is special. But to win the World also, which is the second-biggest race – prestige can’t get no bigger than these two races.”
It’s a big confidence builder for sure,” said Clanton, who sits fourth in the WoO LMS points standings but has yet to reach Victory Lane this season. “The best in the business were here. We showed that we could do it here, (so now) we should be able to do it anywhere we go.”
