DAYTONA, Fla., Feb. 27, 2017 -- Veteran driver and owner Clay Greenfield made his return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this February, but the night ended early — through no fault of his own. The dreaded "Big One" came after the first full lap of the NextEra Energy Resources 250. Greenfield's #68 US Pavement Chevrolet was one of 17 trucks caught in the mess, but the veteran owner/driver isn't about to let this slow him down. He and his team are actively seeking sponsors for April's Alpha Energy Solutions 250 in Martinsville, Virginia.
"We had a short run here at Daytona," said Greenfield. "My team prepared a truck that qualified 15th and even had a shot at the top ten. You have just as big a chance of winning as you do of getting caught up in 'the big one', it's a product of speedway racing. I want to thank my sponsors, US Pavement and BH Holmes Construction, for helping make this possible. Now I've get my sights set on a victory at Martinsville."
Greenfield's skill has never been doubted, but in the past, he's relied on older equipment. That's a big handicap in the ultra-competitive Camping World Truck Series, which is seen by many as the most exciting of NASCAR's big three racing series. This year, Greenfield brought new equipment to Daytona and turned in an excellent qualifying performance, proving he can more than keep pace with the sport's top contenders.
