Kyle and Clayton Weatherman Shines at Summer Season
Racing is a sport dominated by families and where families become legends
Older brother Kyle, 14, is a phenom behind the wheel on both dirt and asphalt. Last season, Kyle Weatherman won the prestigious USLCI Nationals winning out over 160 of the top drivers in the country.
Younger brother Clayton, 12, has also experienced staggering success behind the wheel. In 2010, this young driver went to Victory Lane an astonishing 30 times. This gave him an unheard of winning percentage, winning 2 out of every 3 races he entered.
Kyle competes in the Legends Pro division and had already accumulated twenty starts prior to the Summer Shootout this season, though he did have an unexpectedly slow start to the Summer Shootout. . He scored eight wins along with 14 top five and 15 top ten performances. He has made starts in his Legend car, Dirt Super Late Model, and in IMCA Modified this season.
Meanwhile, Clayton Weatherman has scored nine wins in sixteen starts so far this season but his performance at the Summer Shootout did not go as well as expected. Clayton is continuing to heal from a broken thumb that required surgery and pins after a disastrous crash in Texas back in May.
Having just completed their latest race at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the Weatherman brothers proved once again why they are two of the nation’s top Legend racers.
In the two day USLCI qualifier where Young Lions, Semi-Pro and Pro classes were combined, the brothers scored four top three finishes. Both drivers dominated their heats and finished second (Kyle) and fourth (Clayton).
The next race on the schedule for the Weatherman brothers is the third weekend of November; once again motor speedway scheduled at The Bullring in Las Vegas. While they may be a family and take pride in competing together, there certainly is a bit of sibling rivalry. Both brothers are always rooting for each other, but that doesn’t stop them from competing fiercely against each other at the same time.
With their competitive spirit, will to achieve and sheer talent, it is certain that the career the Weatherman brothers have already made for themselves is beginning. Weatherman is surely the Motor Sports Racing name of the future and definitely of the present.
