Clay Young, born on June 9, 1947 in Smyrna, GA, is a former NASCAR driver. He has competed in both the Sprint Cup Series and Craftsman Truck Series.

Sprint Cup (then Winston Cup)Edit

Young made five career starts in this series, beginning in 1980. He had a good debut that year, driving the #5 Olds into the field at Atlanta. Young competed 265 laps, and despite crashing out of the event, came home with a 19th place finish.

The only race that Young was running at the finish came in 1986, when he raced at Riverside. He started his personally-owned car in 37th, but ended up finishing 21st.

Young reappeared to the series in 1992, when he competed at Talladega. He started 39th and finished 39th after an engine let go on lap fourty.

Young's final Cup season was in 1993, when he competed in two races for Jimmy Means. Young was 40th at Michigan and finished 38th at Pocono, falling out of both races with mechanical problems.

Craftsman Truck SeriesEdit

At the age of fifty-four, Young ended up making one start in this series. In 2001, Young barely squeaked the #35 PVR Motorsports Ford into the field at South Boston, starting 36th. He only improved to 34th before a clutch took him out of the event.
