Clanton is holding out hope that he can return to Roush Fenway Racing and get a second chance in what was supposed to be his full-time seat in the No. 09 Ford, ESPN.com
Clanton went into limbo when he was replaced in the No. 09 truck last weekend at Fontana by Travis Kvapil. It didn't help Clanton's case to drive when Kvapil brought the truck home in the Top-10 either. A Roush Fenway spokesman said there is "no guarantee" that Clanton will get to race in any other events this season.
