Tyler Clem is also K&N’s youngest sponsored driver. “K&N was one of the first corporate sponsors to believe in us,” said Bubba the Love Sponge. “The products work on and off the track. I’ve always been a K&N fan and used the product long before we were sponsored.”

Michael Atwell is a new addition to Clem Racing Inc. “Michael has a natural racing ability,” said Bubba the Love Sponge. “He is driving a Bandolero in the Legends Series.” The Bandolero car is designed for entry level racers as young as 10 and cranks out 30 horses. Bandolero cars are manufactured by 600 Racing, Inc.

Tyler is too young to get in the Bandolero, but is already practicing. He turns 7 in June.
