Jeremy Clements will be driving a Geoff Bodine throwback during the Darlington Throwback weekend.
First Pacific Funding will sponsor the No. 51 Chevrolet as he pays homage to one of NASCAR’s 75 Greatest Drivers. During his career Bodine was the 1982 Cup Rookie of the year, 1986 Daytona Champion, 1987 IROC Champion, 3-time Darlington XFINITY Series winner, and a 18-time Cup winner.
“Throwback weekend is one of the coolest weekends on the schedule. Plus, Darlington is not only my home track but also one of my favorite tracks to race on. said Clements. “We really have a helluva great looking car this year. All the credit goes to Steve (Carnes) from First Pacific for helping bring this 80’s badassery of a scheme back to life again! We hope to put on a good show and take the #51 hot rod to the front.” Clements went on to say.
After nine starts in the Xfinity Series this season, Clements currently sits 20th in the overall point standings. Over an 18-year career in the series the 38-year-old has two wins, six top-five, and 37 top-10 finishes across 440 starts.
