Clay Greenfield (born June 3, 1984 in Clarksville, Tennessee) is an American stock car racing driver. He currently competes part-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, primarily driving the No. 68 Ram for Alger Motorsports.

Career[edit]

A graduate of Clarksville Academy,[1] early in his career Greenfield competed primarily in the UARA-Stars Series,[2] also making several qualifying attempts in the ARCA Racing Series in the mid 2000s, his debut being at Salem Speedway in 2004.[3] He made his debut in NASCAR competition in 2010, driving for Team Gill Racing in the Camping World Truck Series at Martinsville Speedway; over the next three years he competed in 22 races, posting a best finish of 10th at Daytona International Speedway in 2012.[4] Greenfield also made his debut in the Nationwide Series in 2011, finishing 35th at Atlanta Motor Speedway while driving for Rick Ware Racing.[5]

Greenfield began the 2013 season by posting the fastest time in practice for the Camping World Truck Series' season-opening event at Daytona International Speedway in February,[6] and finished 26th in the race,[4] but then failed to qualify for the next two races.[7] He finished 16th at Kansas Speedway, then returned to the series at Kentucky Speedway in July, finishing 35th for Norm Benning Racing. A few weeks later, he and Norm Benning were surprisingly racing against each other for a final transfer spot in the Mudsummer Classic race yet lost it to his part-time owner. Greenfield hasn't drove for him ever since.
