January 29, 2017 - Clem Begins 2017 Campaign at BRP for Bubba Army Winter Nationals
On Thursday night Tyler Clem kicked off the 2017 season at his home-track, Bubba Raceway Park (Ocala, Florida) in the opening round of the annual Bubba Army Winter Nationals. Drawing 41 Crate Late Models for the three-day NeSmith Winter Shootout sanctioned weekend, Clem earned the 15th-starting position for the opening night A-Main after timing in 8th fastest in his qualifying group. Slipping three spots in the 40-lapper, Tyler logged an 18th-place finish.

In a field of 44 cars on Friday, Clem registered the 13th-fastest time in his qualifying group, which relegated him to the B-Main. Sending the Top 6 into the $2,000-to-win, preliminary feature, Tyler landed a runner-up finish behind Rambo Franklin. Starting in 11th, Tyler Clem jumped up three positions, notching an 8th-place finish at the checkered flag. (Zachary Yost photo)

Saturday night’s Chevrolet Performance World Championship was postponed to Sunday afternoon after Bubba Raceway Park received afternoon rain along with an unfavorable evening forecast. Earning the 20th-starting spot for the $10,000-to-win finale, Tyler Clem charged through the field 16 spots in the 100-lapper, posting an impressive 4th-place finish behind Kyle Bronson, Brandon Sheppard, and Mike Pegher Jr. with Hudson O’Neal coming in 5th.

“We got better and better as the weekend went along, and it really showed in the 100 lapper on Sunday,” said Clem. “To have such a strong run against such a talented field of competitors gives me a lot of confidence and excitement for this season.”
