Atwell Sweeps Tampa for CRI

Tampa, FL – The boys of Clem Racing, Inc., Michael Atwell and Tyler Clem, turned in stellar efforts Saturday night in the JR Honda Division and Light 160 Division of Florida Quarter-Midget racing at the Tampa Ambassador Speedway. The duo flat out dominated their heat races and finished first and third respectively in their main events.

In their JR Honda heat race, Michael ran a flawless race and crossed the finish line with his teammate Tyler hot on his rear bumper. Considering the mechanical issues of the past few weeks, an event free heat race was much needed. The boys worked their way through the field quickly and cruised home to the 1-2 finish with relative ease.

The ‘A’ Main was slightly more adventurous for Tyler however. Michael led early and never looked back, taking the checkered flag and scoring yet another main event win. But, Tyler had to work for his third place ‘A’ Main finish. The young star wheeled his racecar like a veteran on the bumper of Atwell, but a battle with Brennen Spencer would soon ensue.

Spencer worked hard to get around Tyler as the Clem Racing, Inc. driver worked diligently to hit his marks and block the hard charging Spencer. Lap after lap, the two brilliant drivers got after each other. When the checkered flag finally flew, it was Atwell first, Spencer second, and Clem third. The three drivers put on an unbelievable show for the fans in attendance, and a podium finish for the Clem Racing, Inc. duo capped off a great evening.

Michael Atwell also destroyed the field in the Light 160 Division. He cruised around the Tampa Ambassador Speedway on his way to another Feature win. Atwell has been crushing the competition all season long, and now appears headed for another track championship.

Clem Racing, Inc. would like to thank all of the sponsors that make racing possible for Tyler and Michael. K&N Air Filters, Bell Helmets, Oakley, World Wide Bearings, Supreme Protein Bars, Leaf, BR Motorsports, Hoosier Tires, Douglas Technologies, Zero Error Racing, JD Adams Drilling, and Tanner Shocks. Thank you so much! – John ‘Captain Thunder’ Nevins of for Clem Racing, Inc.
