Shane Clanton Captures His Second LaCrosse Footwear Extreme Tough Challenge Event





CONCORD, N.C. - July 4, 2010 - Shane Clanton powered his way to a World of Outlaws Late Model Series victory on Saturday night at Tazewell (Tenn.) Speedway and opened a big lead in the LaCrosse Footwear Extreme Tough Challenge.


Clanton became the first driver to top an Extreme Tough Challenge event twice this year, and in doing so has a 6-point advantage over fellow World of Outlaws Late Model Series competitors Steve Francis and Josh Richards. The World of Outlaws Late Model Series has run three Extreme Tough Challenge events, while the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series has run two events so far.


"We've gotten off to a pretty good start with this LaCrosse Extreme Tough Challenge," said Clanton, of Fayetteville, Ga. "If we can keep on putting together good finishes in these LaCrosse races, we should be right there in the points race at the end of the year. It sure would be cool to win it."


Francis and Richards finished second and third at Tazewell, as Chub Frank and Rick Eckert earned the remaining Extreme Tough Challenge points.


Kasey Kahne Racing's Joey Saldana is the leading World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series driver in the Extreme Tough Challenge. Through five events (three Late Model races, two Sprint Car races), 16 different drivers have earned points.


The Extreme Tough Challenge features 16 overall events - eight per series - where drivers who are competing full-time in the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series or the World of Outlaws Late Model Series earn points toward the championship, which will be decided at the World of Outlaws World Finals in November at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. The top five finishers no matter the series will share a $15,000 point fund, and the winning driver will receive the Extreme Tough Challenge champion trophy.


Also, at each Extreme Tough Challenge event, LaCrosse will distribute keepsake posters as well as provide hat and t-shirt giveaways. Fans can get involved at every race through a unique Extreme Tough competition with the chance to win a pair of LaCrosse boots.


LaCrosse Footwear develops performance footwear and apparel designed to help users dominate their ground in work and recreation. LaCrosse boots, including the Extreme Tough™ line, can be found at premium retailers such as Bass Pro Shops and Gander Mountain.
