Friday, June 24, 2022 - by Steve Hixson

The United Championship Racing Alliance is rescheduling their race at Buckshot Speedway in Clanton, Al. off I-65 between Birmingham and Montgomery for their 604/Crate Late Model series debut. The "Clanton Clash" event will now be scheduled for Saturday July 16, after postponing their May date, due to a scheduling conflict.

This will mark three straight Alabama dates as Penton Motor Speedway and East Alabama Motor Speedway host a week earlier.

Track owner/promoter Billy Wilkins is excited to be working with the series that'll be bringing a top field of talent for the 40 lap, $3,000 to win A-Main feature race.
