MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Cunningham Motorsports announced Tuesday that Clayton Weatherman, brother of former ARCA Racing Series Rookie of the Year Kyle Weatherman, will drive their No. 22 entry when the ARCA Racing Series visits Berlin Raceway on Aug. 6.
The younger Weatherman will be making his fifth-career ARCA start and his first with Cunningham Motorsports.
“I have never been so excited to race for a team as I am for Cunningham Motorsports!” said Weatherman, whose career-best ARCA finish of eighth came at Salem Speedway in his series debut in April of 2015.
“Ever since my brother Kyle raced for them I have always wanted to race at least one race for them. Any time I went to the race track last year, I knew Kyle had a chance to win, and now, I am getting that chance!”
Clayton Weatherman also competed at Winchester Speedway and Lucas Oil Raceway in 2015. His lone start in 2016 was at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville.
The 17-year-old has accumulated over 140 career victories while competing in the USLCI Legends Car ranks and the IMCA Dirt Modified Series.
Weatherman, who will be guided by NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion crew chief Paul Andrews, will be the seventh driver to pilot the No. 22 during the 2016 season.
“Cunningham have always prepared great cars and to get the opportunity to work with Paul Andrews, as my crew chief, is amazing,” he added. “I can’t thank my dad, Briggs Cunningham, Kerry (Scherer) and Paul enough for giving this chance to fulfill my wish to race for them!”
