(Myrtle Beach, SC) – Swansboro, NC native Brandon Clements is one of the most well known Mini-Stock competitors on the East Coast. He has scored a total of 21 wins so far this season at multiple tracks in both North Carolina and South Carolina. Clements nearly captured the Track Championship at Wake County Speedway this year after leading the points for the majority of the season, but just fell short after being caught up in an incident in the season finale.
On November 11th, Clements will try and add another win to his already impressive 2017 season while competing in the Mini-Stock portion of the Myrtle Beach 400 at Myrtle Beach Speedway (MBS). Clements has had success at MBS, as he has scored 4 wins there in the past.
We asked Clements about his confidence going into the event. “Going in to it very confident, we had a really good car there earlier this year scoring two wins. We are going with a different car but it should be even faster.” said Clements.
The final race at MBS is known to attract some of the greatest Mini-Stock drivers on the east coast. Clements said, “I think the Thrasher Racing team will be bringing two really strong cars and as always A.J. Sanders will be quick, but this year hearing that the field will be stacked with really fast cars from all over”
The one thing that is synonymous with the speedway is the presence of extreme tire wear. When someone mentions the track, the first thing that comes to most people’s mind is tire conservation. “Picking a good spot to ride to keep the fenders on it and not burning the tires up is key and then going at the right time” said Clements, when asked about the key to winning at MBS.
