Jeremy W. Clements was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina, on January 16, 1985. He is now 37 years old. He is Tony Clements’ son. Clements, a native of Spartanburg, South Carolina, started racing go-karts at the age of eight. He then switched to competing in the Modified and Stock Series at Thunder Valley Speedway and Cherokee Speedway in four-cylinder vehicles in 1999. He won two track championships and 55 feature races over the course of the next three seasons.
In 2002, Clements advanced to the Late Model class, where he won nine overall races and the championship at Cherokee. At Talladega Superspeedway, he also made his ARCA Series debut, starting sixth and finished seventeenth in the No. 3 Chevrolet. In 2003, he made five ARCA race starts and finished third three times. At the age of 19, Clements had a terrible accident on July 24, 2004, at the 311 Speedway in North Carolina. His right hand was hurt when the driveshaft from his late model snapped and sliced through the car.
He had a nine-hour orthopedic surgery at Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, after being sent there right away. The next year, Clements had 10 operations, involving the use of bone grafts from his hip, tendons from his right foot, and stitching his hand to his right side hip for a skin transplant. The next year was the first time he competed in a race. Clements tested his late model at Thunder Valley on July 10, 2005, marking the first time since the collision that he had been in the driver’s seat of a racecar. In September, he returned to the ARCA at Chicagoland Speedway.
He participated in 10 ARCA series races in 2006 driving Ken Appling’s No. 3 Chevrolet. He had four top-10 finishes, including three straight top-5s. Additionally, he was chosen to take part in a three-track test with Richard Childress Racing by General Motors. In 12 races, Clements had his best season to date in 2007, finishing eighth eight times. He started second and led 48 laps at Nashville Superspeedway on August 11, 2007, to record his lone ARCA victory to date. Clements competed in seven events in 2008. He achieved five top-10 finishes and finished in second, just missing out on recapturing his Nashville victory.
At Pikes Peak International Raceway in 2003, Jeremy Clements made his NASCAR Xfinity Series (then NASCAR Busch Series) debut. He started 35th and finished 31st while operating the No. 71 Chevrolet for Young Racing after an early collision. The next year, in 2007, Clements inked a contract with McGill Motorsports to compete in the last five races of the NASCAR Xfinity Series season in their No. 36 Chevrolet. He only competed in two races, with his best placing at Charlotte Motor Speedway being 23rd.
In 2008, Clements entered four races with his No. 50 family-owned squad. He placed 22nd and 30th in the two competitions in which he qualified. In events that clashed with the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series schedule, he also spent time testing and qualifying vehicles for Joe Gibbs Racing over those two years. Clements concentrated more on the Xfinity Series in 2009, entering 13 races and finishing 12. His highest placing in six races driving the family-owned No. 50 was sixteenth. Clements and sponsor Saxon Group teamed up with JD Motorsports just before the Kansas Speedway event in October to complete the season in the No. 0 Chevrolet. He had a then-career-best 12th place result at Auto Club Speedway in his second race with JD.
Jeremy Clements will pilot the No. 0 for JD Motorsports with support from Boudreaux’s Butt Paste for at least the first three races of the 2010 season, it was revealed in the off-season. His intentions for the remainder of the reason were uncertain after failing to qualify at Daytona owing to weather. When the No. 0 squad was eliminated, JD switched Clements to the No. 4 team. In spite of his best efforts, he was unable to qualify for either of the next two events. At Nashville Superspeedway in April, Clements participated in his first race of the year and came in 22nd. He entered 19 additional races, and he was successful in 15 of them.
Jeremy Clements finished 10th and led six laps at Gateway International Raceway in October to secure his first top-10 finish in his racing career (the first laps led of his career). Clements participated in all 34 races in 2011 and placed 15th overall. He finished the season with eleven top-twenty finishes, three 14th-place finishes, and no top-ten finishes. Clements and his group participated in the Xfinity Series again in 2012. When Ty Dillon was utilizing his 51, he participated in two races for JD Motorsports at Richmond and Indianapolis. Clements finished in the top 10 twice.
On February 27, 2013, NASCAR suspended Clements indefinitely for placing 33rd in the first race of the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series. According to the sanctioning body’s regulations, Sections 7-5 and 12-1, which describe breaches of the NASCAR Code of Conduct as conduct that is harmful to stock car racing, the suspension was a result.
It was then reported that Clements said, “When you say ‘racist’ comment, it wasn’t meant to disparage anyone or anything,” in an interview with ESPN. It is all I have to say about that. And it wasn’t in reality. I should not have used the term I used while describe racing since it was inappropriate. It must never be applied. Marty Beckerman, the MTV editor who spoke with Clements, verified that Clements used the “n-word” in his statement.
Clements missed two races before making a comeback to finish the season. His top-ten results at the significant Talladega Superspeedway tri-oval and the series’ maiden race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course served as the season’s high points. The Aaron’s 312 at Talladega Superspeedway on May 3, 2014, saw Clements briefly finish in the top five after a string of equipment failures in the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series. However, an accident took him out with four laps remaining. Second-placed Ryan Blaney’s vehicle crashed into the wall and into Clements after ricocheting off of it.
At the Gardner Denver 200 at Road America, Clements finished in sixth position, which was a career high at the time. Despite a few subpar results and a high finish of 10th at Dover, Clements had a respectable season in 2015. In 2016, Clements finished fourth at Talladega after leading laps during caution periods. This was his first top-five Xfinity result.
Jeremy Clements had a top 10 performance in Iowa in 2017, as he came in eighth. A few races later, he would win at Road America for the first time in his racing career when he and Matt Tifft made contact with two laps remaining. Since David Gilliland’s victory at Kentucky in 2006, Clements’ victory became the first for an independent Xfinity Series driver and the team not connected to NASCAR’s Cup Series. After winning in overtime in the Daytona night race in 2022, Clements qualified for the playoffs.
