BRISTOL, Tenn. – Clay Greenfield will drive for Spencer Davis Motorsports in Thursday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway, the team confirmed Wednesday morning.
Greenfield will drive the No. 11 Toyota Tundra with primary sponsorship from his Tennessee-based business, Greenfield Pavement Coatings.
It will be Greenfield’s second Truck Series race of the year. He ran the series’ most recent race at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway for his family-owned Clay Greenfield Motorsports team.
“I am excited about the opportunity to drive for Spencer Davis Motorsports at Bristol this week,” Greenfield said. “Like myself, Spencer is trying to build a successful Truck Series organization and a lot of the guys on his team have worked for me through the years, so it’s nice to be reunited with some of them.
“This is a great opportunity for myself to help evaluate Spencer’s program while getting the opportunity to race at one of my favorite race tracks on the circuit, Bristol Motor Speedway,” he added.
Since 2010, Greenfield, 37, has made seven starts at the Thunder Valley half-mile oval. His best finish is 16th, which came in his 2010 track debut for Rick Ware Racing.
Carrying an average finish of 25.4 at the high-banked short track, Greenfield looks to improve that statistic as the year winds down.
“Bristol is one of my favorite tracks and has been since the first time I turned a lap there in a late model in 2004,” said Greenfield. “I have had multiple should-have-been wins slip away in the late model ranks, so I would love to drive this No. 11 truck up on top of the building in victory lane.”
Greenfield is also proud his business, Greenfield Pavement Coatings, will ride with him.
“As a racer, you devote so much of your time trying to sell sponsorship,” he said. “When you finally get a meeting with the decision-maker the question always comes up “How will this help my business and what kind of results will I get?
“With my paving coming, Greenfield Pavement Coatings I have the unique ability to do a case study to help sell sponsorship in the future,” he added. “We have an advertising budget in place to specifically promote the paving sector of the business, I have access to all the financials, so why not put my money where my mouth is and have Greenfield Pavement Coatings on national television.
Greenfield will be the fourth driver for Spencer Davis Motorsports this season, joining Bubba Wallace, Camden Murphy and Davis.
“Clay is an experienced short track racer with over 1,000 laps turned at Bristol and I think he will do a great job for us and our partners,” Davis said. “I look forward to being in the truck next weekend at Las Vegas.”
Greenfield will start 34th for the 200-lap race.
Melvin Burns, who started the year as the team’s car chief, will continue in his new role as crew chief for the second consecutive Truck Series race.
