Brandon Clements Dominates for First Carteret Late Model Win
 OTHER 
Posted by:  RaceRap on May 15, 2018 at 8:19am

Andy Marquis
SWANSBORO, NC – Brandon Clements led 74 of 80 laps in Saturday night’s Late Model feature at Carteret County Speedway to score his first division victory.

Clements qualified on the pole, but Tyler Horne took the early lead for Clements.   On the sixth lap of the race, Clements came roaring past and drove away from the field to score the win.   After the race, Clements was jubilant about his victory and about winning just two days before his second wedding anniversary.

“It’s a great anniversary present to Cali and a great Mother’s Day present to my mom, my mother-in-law and all the moms out there,” Clements said in victory lane.   “Wendell Davis and his crowd and our team, this thing drove like a dream.   Clay was a little better than us on the first couple laps, but after that, the car got to where it was turning really well and we could manage our tires.   Clay gave us a run on the restarts but we had a dominant car.”

Jones came to Carteret County Speedway fresh off a win last weekend at Southern National Motorsports Park.   He raced his way to the runner-up position after starting fifth in a race he was using as a practice session for the $15,000-to-win Solid Rock Carriers 150, which will be run on July 7th.

“Congratulations to Brandon man,” Jones stated.   “That thing was hooked up for sure.   We struggled bad all day.   We ran awesome last weekend at Southern National.   Changed a bunch of stuff and it worked there.   Come down here and it’s a whole different animal down here.   Flat track, no banking, we changed everything from bumper to bumper again.   It’s just been a struggled today.   Hot, long day.   To finish second is like a win.”

T.J. Barron finished third while Mini Tyrrell, Chris Burns, Dustin Yeoman and Tyler Horne rounded out the field.

Clements became the second different winner in the second race of the season in the Late Model division.   He is also the second driver, joining Clay Jones, to win races in Late Models and Mini Stocks.   With his victory on Saturday, Clements should inherit the points lead.

Resnick and Day Continue Dominance

Adam Resnick and Caleb Day scored their third consecutive wins at Carteret County Speedway in the U-CAR and Legends divisions respectively.

Resnick got to the lead in the early laps of the U-CAR feature and held off Steve Sullivan and Andrew Jackson to score the win.

“We didn’t blow them out,” Resnick said.   “They were racing each other.   It’s amazing.   Steve Sullivan, these guys are so good.   We’re not winning because we’re faster.   We’re winning because we’re lucky.   We’ll keep taking the luck because it can all stop pretty soon.”

Caleb Day dominated in the Legends feature, while nursing a motor that expired shortly after the finish of the race, to win over Brenton Irving and Justin Mitchell.   Irving and Mitchell were both involved in a last lap incident when Mitchell spun off Irving’s front bumper coming to the checkered flag.   Mitchell finished third.

However, in victory lane, it was all about the continued dominance of Caleb Day.   Day has now won six consecutive races in the Legends division, with two wins at Southern National, three wins at Carteret County Speedway and a win at Coastal Plains Raceway Park.

“That’s the last race for that motor,” Day said.   “I smelled it with about five to go and I just said a prayer.   I don’t know if it’s going to fire up to drive back to the trailer.   (It didn’t.)   We had a good run.   It feels good.   I was a little nervous.   The car was not where it needed to be.   We were way off and I was glad everybody else was a little off too.”

Father and son bookended the podium in the Street Stock race.   The son, James Horner, scored the victory in the 35 lap feature while father, Jimmy Horner, finished in third.   In between those two was Brandon Manning.   Ricky Locklair, Jr. had qualified on the pole and had the early lead, but he was forced to retire from the event with a mechanical issue, paving the way for the younger Horner.

“I wish Ricky had stayed in it,” Horner said.   “I think we would have put on a good show.   It would have been a close race.   I’ve got to thank Brandon Manning.   My left front motor locked up and he did a great job saving both of our cars.   I have to give a hand off to him.   I can’t thank everybody enough for this.”

Kris Hetu held off Travis Provost and Travis Miller in a wild Battlefield Tire Pros Mini Stock feature which saw numerous cautions.   It took four attempts to get the first lap complete in a sequence of events which saw two of the podium finishers themselves have issues.

Stephen Sanders, who won in Mini Stocks two weeks ago, arrived at the track literally less than five minutes before the feature race started after running at East Carolina Motor Speedway.   Sanders raced his way up to second before being forced to retire with mechanical issues.

Joseph Bryant scored the win in the Mini Cup class in a photofinish over Justin Hall and Steve Chauncey.   J.R. Taylor scored the win in the Intracoastal Crane Works Champ Kart division over Daemyn Ottaway and Lee Ottaway.

Carteret County Speedway will once again be in action on Sunday, May 27th for the third running of the Memorial Classic.   The race will be headlined by Late Models with the rest of the schedule to be finalized early this week.
