NASCAR Modified Rookie Sports Microbe Formulas Wrapped Car

Meridian, Idaho, April 30, 2021—Microbe Formulas-sponsored race car driver, John Clever, has now completed two races with his Microbe Formulas wrapped car, the Microbe Maverick. Fourteen-year-old Clever is the only driver under age 18 in the local NASCAR Modified series. 

Meridian-based health company, Microbe Formulas, set out in this sponsorship to both support local youth and help spread their message of hope and healing. 

Clever raced on April 10th and again on April 15th at Meridian Speedway. Clever’s Tin Star Racing team had some complications with the car in the days leading up to the race on the 10th. On race day, Clever had to operate without low gears. Although he started last in the lineup in 14th place, he finished in 9th place.

Clever says, “I learned a lot, and this was the most fun and exhilarating race I have ever been in! I am excited to see how I can do once we have the car running and geared correctly.”

On April 15th, Clever completed his second ever NASCAR Modified race. The drive train issues were resolved from the week prior, but a different problem arose with the carburetor. A replacement was installed minutes before the race, but it was not tuned correctly. Even with the issues, John started in 10th and finished in 9th. A second race was planned for that day, but was cancelled due to rain.

In regards to the races on April 15th, Jeremiah Clever, John’s father and manager, adds, “After the first race of the day, we were able to get the carburetor tuned and the accelerator pump working. I was excited to see how John would do in the second race that day with the car working at full power, but the weather had other ideas.”

The team will take the next two weeks to get the car mechanics dialed in and have John set up for full power in his next race scheduled for May 8th.
