GREENFIELD BACK AT BRISTOL:
With only five starts so far this year in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series 2012 Season, Clay Greenfield is excited to return to Bristol and is hopeful for a Top 15 finish. “Bristol is my best track “, said Greenfield. “I am excited to return there, being a short- track racer; I feel I have my best chances at Bristol. I raced there in 2010 and finished 16th, so I am hoping for an equal if not better finish for my team this time.
PARTNERING TOGETHER ON AND OFF TRACK – TITAN TOOL POWRLINER AND STAR ROAD GUARD
Clay Greenfield works to race. As the saying goes, “Don’t quit your day job”, it would be impossible for Greenfield to quit his day job if he wanted to continue to race. Unlike most of the guys who race week in and week out in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS), which is their only career, that isn’t so for the Clarksville, TN native Greenfield. Greenfield works hard with his day job as the owner of an asphalt company, just so that he can make enough money in his “day job” to race in the NCWTS. Greenfield only makes about a dozen of the races each year as the cost to actually run a truck continues to increase. “In this economy it makes it tough for me to race more races, I started my own NCWTS race team this year so that I can control my own destiny some as well as work on my race trucks back at my shop after work in the evenings.” I have a couple of really good guys that help me out, we are a small team doing the best we can, but at least I am out here living my dream”. Greenfield could never make his dreams come true if it was not for great partners off the track like Titan Tool and Star Road Guard who make it happen for him on-track.
“I have a couple of key sponsors on board this week for me that I use everyday in my asphalt business that have partnered with me for this race.” Said Greenfield. “ Titan Tool PowrLiner offers the highest quality paint sprayers available, I am proud to be partnering with them for the race at Bristol as well as using their equipment everyday in my asphalt business”.
“My company has also been using Star Seal products for over 20 years. I want to thank them for using my race team to promote Star Road-Guard the newest line of their industry leading seal coating products. It will be awesome to show them a good time and a good finish in Bristol”.
We are proud to be a partner in Clay’s striping business with our PowrLiner striping products”. Said John Hurt, Sr. Account Manager at Titan Tool. “We are also excited to partner with Clay as a sponsor of his #68 Titan Tool Powrliner/Star Guard Dodge Ram for the upcoming truck race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Clay is great to work with and all of us here at Titan are looking forward to cheering him on.”
“ We are thrilled to be a part of Clay’s program here at Bristol, said Monte Collins, of Star Road Guard. We have had a long-term relationship with the Greenfields, and taking it to the next level partnering with his race program just made total sense for our business.”

Clay Greenfield Motorsports fields two trucks in Kentucky

Sparta, Ky – Clay Greenfield wasn’t planning on making the trip to Kentucky Speedway just a few short weeks ago, instead his Clay Greenfield Motorsports team fielded two trucks in the 2nd Annual UNOH 225. Clay would drive his #68 @claygreenfield Dodge Ram and Scott Riggs would be behind the wheel of the #86 CGM RAM.
Both trucks had solid lap speeds in the two practice sessions, which enabled the teams to both qualify into the race. Clay had his best qualifying effort of the 2012 season with his 21st place run with a lap time of 32.260 at 167.39 mph and Scott Riggs turned in a 32nd place qualifying run of 32.715 at 165.062 mph.
At the start of the race Riggs’ truck started to get hot under the pace laps, with outside temperatures reaching the 100-degree mark Mother Nature took her toll on the #86 truck. Riggs had to park the truck from overheating, ending his day at a great run. Meanwhile, Greenfield kept his truck out of harms way as cautions were breading cautions. Clay paced himself gaining knowledge of what his truck needed to have a successful finish. Greenfield found himself two laps down but with 104 laps remaining, the call was made to keep Clay out on a caution. The resulting wave -around brought Clay within one lap of the leaders. A caution falling on lap 110, just a few laps later, allowed Greenfield to get NASCAR’s free pass around (The Lucky Dog) for being the first truck a lap down. The Lucky Dog put Clay back on the lead lap with just 40 laps remaining in the race. Greenfield would restart in the 18th position and remain there for the final laps and finish of the race.
Martinsville, VA – Clay Greenfield rolled into Martinsville Speedway 9th in the points standings after a 10th place finish in the season opener at Daytona in February. Greenfield was 27th in both practices on Friday at the half-mile track in Martinsville. Clay said the truck was a little tight right off the truck but the team lead by crew chief Gene Patient has gotten the truck a lot better. Greenfield went into qualifying needing to qualify in on time. Clay’s best lap of 20.349 was enough to secure him the 29th starting spot for the Kroger 250 at Martinsville.
Clay came on the radio to his crew on the pace laps of the race saying that it felt as if he had a flat tire. It was later to be found that his problem was an issue with the sway bar. Clay battled his ill handling truck as long as he could, Clay would have to park his truck after completing 151 of the 250 laps due to an issue with the sway bar. Clay finished 31st in the race and left Martinsville 13th in the NASCAR Camping World Truck standings.
