BARBERVILLE, Fla. – Feb. 20, 2016 – One night after being involved in a multi-car accident, Shane Clanton charged from the fifth starting position, as he ran down DIRTcar Nationals points leader Josh Richards from four seconds back, then nosed Scott Bloomquist at the line to claim the final night of the 45th Annual DIRTcar Nationals.

Josh Richards finished third, leading 45 of the 50-lap feature, to come up just short of the sweep of the weekend but still wrapped up the overall points championship and captured the Big Gator trophy.
