CONCORD, N.C. - March 4, 2015 - Shane Clanton still has to occasionally pinch himself to make sure his fantastic start to 2015 wasn't all a dream.
Emerging from a nightmarish 2014 World of Outlaws Late Model Series campaign that ranked among his worst seasons statistically, Clanton, 39, of Zebulon, Ga., began the 2015 season in top form in claiming four victories and finishing among the top five in all seven WoO LMS events during the national tour's annual early-season trek through Georgia and Florida.

By Joshua Joiner, WoO LMS PR Director
BARBERVILLE, Fla. – Feb. 21, 2015 – Putting an exclamation mark on his tremendous DIRTcar Nationals performance, Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., led the final 19 laps of Saturday's World of Outlaws Late Model Series main event to claim his fourth victory in five races at Volusia Speedway Park's annual week of Super Late Model racing.
The utter domination solidifies Clanton's recovery from a dismal 2014 season the saw the 39-year-old racer go winless on the WoO LMS for the first time since the national tour was restarted in 2004. Looking for his first ever WoO LMS championship, Clanton has firmly established himself as the 2015 title favorite as he leaves Florida with a commanding 90-point lead over defending series champion Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky.
