HScott Motorsports will not compete in 2017 after selling the charter they used for Clint Bowyer to Premium Motorsports, according to NBC’s Dustin Long.
In a statement issued earlier this week, Harry Scott Jr. said "Over the past several months I considered a number of options for moving forward with the team. Regrettably there are no viable sponsor/driver options immediately available to allow the team to participate in 2017." Dec 7 - 4:24 PM

Clint Bowyer finished better than he started on 29 occasions in 2016, which was a percentage of .806.

On average, he improved slightly more than seven positions including the five races in which he fell back. On three occasions—at Talladega SuperSpeedway (May), Bristol Motor Speedway (April), and Daytona International Speedway (July)—he finished among the top 10 after starting deep in the field in the 30s.

Clint Bowyer is suing HScott Motorsports for $2.2 million after he says they missed two regular payments and a commission, according to ESPN.

Bowyer had a disappointing season last year, finishing 27th in the standings. It was only supposed to be a bridge until he could climb into the No. 14 vacated by Tony Stewart, but more was still expected. Bowyer claims that the team is paying other creditors instead of him and he believes they are likely to shut down before the 2017 season.

Clint Bowyer has finished somewhere in the 20s in eight of his last 10 starts. His other two results were a 17th at Charlotte Motor Speedway and 18th at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

More was expected of this team in 2016, but they have settled into a rhythm that is just outside the front half of the pack. They will stay there for the final two races.

Clint Bowyer has not scored a top-10 finish his last 27 attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

The majority of those sub-10th-place results came in more powerful equipment than he will have in the AAA Texas 500, which does not bode well for his odds as a dark horse this week. He has only two lead lap finishes in the HScott Motorsports ride; one of them was earned last month at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Players who want to see the positive will note that his last top-10 on this track type came in spring 2014 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Clint Bowyer has not scored a top-10 finish in his last three starts at Martinsville Speedway.

The reason this is significant is because Bowyer entered the fall 2015 Martinsville weekend with a six-race, top-10 streak to his credit. He finished 13th that year with Michael Waltrip Racing, crashed in the fall, and was only 25th this spring. If cautions fall his way and Bowyer manages to stay on the lead lap, he could be one of this week’s top dark horses.

Clint Bowyer was the second driver after Ricky Stenhouse Jr. who slapped the wall during the first round of qualification for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway.

Bowyer was not able to recover and posted only the 31st fastest lap of 187.246 mph. Bowyer is on the cusp of being a dark horse most weeks, but fantasy players will need to wait until Saturday’s practice to decide if he is a good value at his cap level.

Trevor Bayne was the first driver who failed to advance to the second round of qualification at Kansas Speedway; he will roll off the grid 25th.

His lap of 188.376 was .013 seconds slower than Kyle Larson. This will be Bayne’s worst ever qualification in five efforts at Kansas, which makes him questionable to earn a fourth career top-15 there.
Oct 14 - 6:42 PM

Clint Bowyer should finish somewhere near 20th this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Five of six similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races this year have ended in results of 19th to 23rd.

The unrestricted, intermediate speedways are not traditional strongholds for lightly-funded teams and that suggests Bowyer has been a big part of helping dial in the HScott Motorsports Chevrolet.

Clint Bowyer spun during his get-up-to-speed lap in qualification for the Bad Boy Off Road 300. He scrubbed his tires and failed to take a time.

The good news was that his spin stopped the clock because next year’s teammate Kevin Harvick and owner Tony Stewart had not yet cleared inspection. Austin Dillon rolled onto pit road as NASCAR checked the track. Bowyer’s spin at Richmond International Raceway several years ago controversially elevated Martin Truex Jr. into the Chase—momentarily. Déjà vu.

Clint Bowyer posted the 24th fastest lap in the second practice session for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.

Bowyer started last year’s edition of this race in Chase contention, but only 26th when the lineup was set by practice times. This week he starts 28th based on points. One season can make a huge difference and Bowyer is almost certain to finish worse than the 19th he scored in 2015.

Besides driving his regular No. 15 Toyota in Sunday's Sprint Cup Series race at Chicagoland Speedway, Clint Bowyer will take his turn in the JR Motorsports (JRM) No. 88 Morton Buildings Chevrolet Camaro for Saturday's XFINITY Series (NXS) Drive for Safety 300.

This will be Bowyer's first NXS race since 2012. He has totaled 180 NXS starts, with eight series wins to his credit. The Kansas native has one top five and four top 10s in five NXS races at the 1.5-mile speedway.-JR Motorsports

Clint Bowyer has finished on the lead lap in his last four Darlington Raceway attempts with a worst finish of 17th coming in last year’s Bojangles' Southern 500.

Bowyer has struggled greatly this season in his transitional year at HScott Motorsports. In order to finish on the lead lap, he is going to have to race within his ability and the limitations of the car. He cannot afford to stripe the right side very hard. In three races prior to his current Darlington streak, he finished off the lead lap and worse than he qualified.
Sep 3 - 11:45 AM

Clint Bowyer has been considered a solid dark horse on a few occasions this year, but has not always lived up to the billing. One exception was the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway this spring when he finished eighth after starting 36th.

That was Bowyer’s ninth consecutive result of 17th or better stretching back to the start of 2012. Bristol is a track on which drivers can more often control their fate than other course types—but only if they are patient. Bowyer has a lot of weight on his shoulders as the regular season winds down and the team he will compete with next year already has a Chase berth. That pressure might prove to be too much and Bowyer should be avoided.

Clint Bowyer did not expect to contend for top-10s in every race, but he almost certainly thought he would finish above the midline most of the time. Instead, he has a 23rd-place finish on average.

Bowyer has been a good value on occasions, but many of his solid runs came with the addition of place-differential points. This season, he has improved by more than seven positions on average. His three top-10s came after he qualified in the mid-30s, making him an outstanding value those weeks.
