Clements, in an interview with ESPN, was later quoted as saying, “When you say ‘racial’ remark, it wasn’t used to describe anybody or anything. So that’s all I’m going to say to that. And it really wasn’t. I was describing racing, and the word I used was incorrect and I shouldn’t have said it. It shouldn’t be used at all.” The MTV editor who had the conversation with Clements, Marty Beckerman, confirmed that Clements said a phrase that included the “n-word”.
Clements sat out two races and returned for the rest of the season.
