Driver & Team Press Releases News
Cliff Daniels Looking for Redemption at the 2008 Bailey’s 300, Martinsville Track On Virginia Racer’s Mind in September
Sep 19, 2008 - updated Sep 19th, 2008 8:51pm
Web posted by

Smithfield, VA. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:September 19, 2008

There are many Late Model Stock Car races across the southern part of the United States every year at multiple racing facilities, but there are only a few key events that drivers circle on their calendars. The Bailey’s 300 at Martinsville Speedway (VA) is one of those races, and Cliff Daniels is hoping to be the one driver standing tall in victory lane as the winner of the event.

Last season, Daniels had that same desire, but his dreams were dashed after missing the field by one position during the heat races.

“Last year we didn’t do quite as well as we wanted to,” said Daniels. “We missed the setup for qualifying, which kind of put us in a hole. We started way back in one of the heat races and made our way back up to sixth, which is one spot away from the final transfer spot. It turned out we had a great car in race conditions, but we just missed it by one spot, which was disappointing. We’ve learned a lot over this past year that we can build on and hopefully have a better result this year.”

Last season, Daniels went into the Bailey’s 300 weekend with very little experience in the Late Model Stock Car realm. This season he has multiple races under his belt, including time at another famous short track in the South, that he feels will help him at Martinsville this time around.

“We have a new racecar this year from what we had last year,” explained Daniels. “With the great results we’ve had with that car this year and the experience we’ve gained, we hope to have a great result. We have experience on concrete this year at Bristol, and the corners at Martinsville are concrete as well. We’ve learned a lot about the setup of the car and the way this car reacts to certain changes. We’ve also added a couple new team members and have learned a lot with Tiffany’s car (Cliff’s sister and Charlie Daniels Racing teammate) that we feel will help us with the overall performance at Martinsville.”

Last year Cliff’s sister Tiffany also attempted to qualify for the Bailey’s 300. This year she will stay out of the driver’s seat to help her brother and teammate get into the race and into victory lane.

“I think it’s going to be great having Tiffany helping out. We were hoping to have two cars in the show, but it didn’t work out for us to be able to take both of them, so I’m fortunate to have her willing to help my program out and be on the radio. We all have great communication at the race track between her, our dad and me, so I’m looking forward to working with them and the rest of my team this next weekend.”

The competition will be tough for Daniels on the track, but if he can make it into the show, his goal is the top prize, the coveted grandfather clock trophy Martinsville Speedway is famous for.

“The legendary grandfather clock…that’s definitely a prestigious trophy. There is so much prestige surrounding this race because there are so many cars and so many great competitors that have been around Late Model racing for years. All the track champions, the national champion, the top UARA guys make for a stiff field of cars. To win that trophy would mean alot because this is a race that has been held annually for many years and the list of names who have won this trophy in the past are well-known in the stock car racing world. It would definitely mean a lot to me and for my career right now.”

Qualifying for the Bailey’s 300 is scheduled for Saturday, September 27th, at 1pm at Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Virginia. On Sunday, September 28th, heat races will begin at 12:30pm with the race starting at 3pm.
