“Throwback weekend is one of the coolest weekends on the schedule. Plus, Darlington is not only my home track but also one of my favorite tracks to race on. said Clements.  “We really have a helluva great looking car this year.  All the credit goes to Steve (Carnes) from First Pacific for helping bring this 80’s badassery of a scheme back to life again! We hope to put on a good show and take the #51 hot rod to the front.”  Clements went on to say.
