(April 10, 2014) The "Kentucky Colonel" Steve Francis made a lap 19 pass on Jonathan Davenport and then held off Brian Birkhofer the rest of way to pick up the win in the NDRL 'PENNational 50' at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway on Thursday night, April 10! It was Francis’ first win at Pittsburgh since 1996 and his first start at the track since 2007. Steve would record the $10,000 victory over Brian Birkhofer, Jonathan Davenport, Kent Robinson, and Brandon Sheppard!

“It was nice to get a win here tonight,” Francis said. “This was a brand new car and the guys did a good job with it. It was good to get one for Clint Bowyer Racing and Georgia Boot. We haven’t had much luck with the NDRL races and with a few laps left, I got into traffic that was two wide and I thought I was going to give this one away. But we were able to get by and ended up getting this one.” (Howie Balis Photo)

“It’s always good to come here and win at Brownstown. This is where I started my Late Model career and it’s the first time I have won here in a Barry Wright Race Car. I want to thank the fans for coming out tonight. I would say they saw a great feature race. I have to thank Clint Bowyer, Lance and Barry Wright, my crew chief Jeremy Justice, and everybody else on the crew. The car was phenomenal!” exclaimed O’Neal in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. “I have to thank all of my sponsors, Peak Antifreeze and Motor Oil, Crawford Supply, Traeger Grills, Cometic Gasket, Ohlins, Georgia Boot and Clements Racing Engines.” (Rick Schwallie Photo)


(February 8, 2014) Steve Francis wins the final Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event of the Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing. Francis displayed his dominance as he led all 50 laps of the main event. The win at Golden Isles Speedway marks his 14th career series win. Francis became the third different winner of the weekend, crossing the finish line ahead of Eddie Carrier Jr., Earl Pearson Jr., Scott Bloomquist, and Brandon Sheppard.

“I can’t say enough about this Barry Wright Race Car. It handled so well all night long. The only concern I had, was coming off turn four a few times was jumping the cushion and losing my momentum. I had to make sure I got into that corner the best I could,” said the winner.

“I think all weekend long, the track was in good condition and made for a great show for the fans. We could race anywhere on it. We had a lot of fun out there tonight. It was a great point’s night, and a really good start to the season.”

Francis and his Clint Bowyer Racing Team have set their sights on winning the title in 2014. “I have to thank Clint for giving me this opportunity. He gives us what we need, the Clements Racing Engine had plenty of horsepower and it’s great to win for Georgia Boot and everybody associated with them.” (Rick Schwallie Photo)

We’ve been fortunate to have great partners like Peak, Crawford Supply and Georgia Boot support us as we continue to move forward and make our programs better. Since we started in 2008 with Shannon Babb we’ve had some great drivers behind the wheel of our race cars, O’Neal will continue that for us into the future and help make our program better.
