Quarter Master's Clutch Performance of the Week
Who Came Through in The Clutch This Time?
As Decided by the Staff of Speed51.com
Performing in the clutch is what seperates a winning driver from the rest of the pack. Flexing muscle at the right time is something that true talents posess. Often luck plays a big role in winning versus losing, but being able to squeeze just enough strength out at the perfect opportunity is what separates winners from losers. Performing in the clutch doesn't necessarily mean winning, however; it's all about making the most from what you've got.
That's why Quarter Master, providers of winning clutches & driveline components to racers from Super Speedway to the Bullring, from IRL to Rally, from NASCAR to the "Weekend Warrior," is proud to honor a weekly "Clutch Performance of the Week" from the short track ranks of America. Each week, an esteemed panel of short track industry insiders will vote on which drivers came through in the clutch. The driver or team with the most votes will then be the "Clutch Performance of the Week." At the end of the 2009 season, the driver or team that received the most votes throughout the season will then be the "Clutch Performer of the Year" and will be awarded a clutch kit from Quarter Master, valued at $3,500 - just like the 2008 Quarter Master Clutch Performer of the Year winner Eddie MacDonald.

Ross Kenseth has been voted as the driver who put forth this week's Speed51.com Quarter Master Clutch Performance of the Week.
The teenager beat an entry list that was 51 cars strong in a 38-lap sprint race at Madison International Raceway (WI) in the Big Eight Series this past weekend. Then he backed that run up with a fine top-10 performance in the ASA Late Model North race at Illiana.
Performing under pressure without trouble must be in the genes for the son of NASCAR Cup Series champion Matt Kenseth, because Ross sure did exactly that this weekend.
Kenseth was the overwhelming choice of our panel this week, but a few other racers also earned votes as well.
Tommy Lemons, Jr. was the first driver to beat Philip Morris in the Late Model Stock Car class at Motor Mile since August 16th. He earned a
nod for that accomplishment.
Eric Williams also recieved a vote for defending his home turf of Thunder Road Speedbowl (VT) against ACT Late Model Touring stars like Patrick Laperle, Mike Olsen, Brian Hoar, Scott Payea and Joey Pole on Sunday afternoon.
