Clint Bowyer finished third in the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma to extend his streak of top-10 finishes on this track to five consecutive.
Four of these results were also top-fives, which makes him one of the strongest and most consistent choices. He has been almost as strong at the Glen and should be watched closely in two months. Jun 28 - 6:45 PM

Clint Bowyer jumped to the top of the speed chart in the final minutes of the first practice session for the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. His fastest lap was recorded at 95.547 mph.

Bowyer has a current four-race, top-10 streak at Sonoma that includes a win in 2012. Premium is place on handling instead of horsepower on the road courses and Bowyer should be able to keep his string alive.

Clint Bowyer finished 10th in the Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway, which was his ninth consecutive top-10 finish there.

That obviously makes him one of the favorites when the series returns in August, but fantasy owners need to recall that Bowyer’s result was partly aided by rain. The Michael Waltrip Racing No. 15 team still has substantial work to do before achieving place-and-hold status.

Clint Bowyer enters the weekend with the longest active streak of top-10s at Michigan International Speedway with eight, but he is going to need to find some more speed Saturday to keep that alive. Bowyer qualified only 32nd after practicing 27th earlier on Friday.

Fog and wet conditions delayed Saturday morning’s session and will abbreviate practice. Bowyer is going to be hard-pressed to keep his streak alive and should be approached cautiously for the Quicken Loans 400.

Effective immediately, Brian Pattie will become the crew chief for the No. 55 Toyota Camry driven by David Ragan. Billy Scott will become the crew chief for the No. 15 Toyota Camry driven by Clint Bowyer.

Pattie has been the crew chief for the No. 15 with Bowyer since the team was established in 2012. He has scored three wins with the team, and finished second in the 2012 Chase for the Sprint Cup and seventh in 2013. Scott has been the crew chief of the No. 55 since August 2013, and previously served under Rodney Childers as that team’s lead engineer. Additional changes include a reorganization of lead, secondary and support engineers for each team. Car chiefs, road mechanics and pit crews will remain with their originally assigned teams.-Michael Waltrip Racing

Clint Bowyer enters the weekend with six consecutive top-15 finishes and hope that he can extend that to seven this week.

The odds of him finishing that well are modest. He finished ninth last week at Dover International Speedway, but he has posted back-to-back top-15s only once this year. The good news is that came on the concrete Bristol Motor Speedway and flat Richmond International Raceway. Last week’s venue was also on a concrete track and Pocono is another flat course.

Clint Bowyer entered the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway with the longest active streak of top-10s. He finished ninth on Sunday and extended that streak to nine consecutive races.

During that streak, he has an average finish of 7.3, which will make him a favorite again when the series rolls back into Delaware during the Chase.

Clint Bowyer has the longest active streak of top-10s going at Dover International Speedway with eight consecutive. He qualified 20th for the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks.

During this active streak, Bowyer also qualified in the 20s back in fall 2013 and both of 2011’s races, so he has the ability to use strategy to get to the front. Look for Bowyer to languish mid-pack for a while, but be among the leaders at the end of the day.

Clint Bowyer led 17 laps in the 40-lap Sprint Showdown and won to advance to Saturday night’s all-star race.

This will be Bowyer’s seventh start in the exhibition race and he is looking to improve on last year’s career best result of seventh. With this win, he has more track time than the competition and could be an interesting choice in special games.

Clint Bowyer earned a top-10 in the first race of the season at Daytona International Speedway. It took nine weeks, but he finally scored a second with a ninth in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway

That comes just before Bowyer and the field heads to Talladega SuperSpeedway, which is a track where he has excelled in the past. He would be a favorite there without the added momentum, but this certainly helps make him a popular pick for Sunday.

Clint Bowyer’s 2015 season resembles a bell curve six weeks into the year. He has scored only two top-15s, which came at Daytona in the opening race and at Martinsville—both of which are specialty tracks.

Martinsville is one of Bowyer’s best tracks and he runs strong on restrictor-plate, superspeedways as well. The key to his success will be to sustain strong runs at Texas and Richmond in the coming weeks, because those are also strong courses for the driver of the No. 15.
Apr 5 - 6:08 PM

Since joining Michael Waltrip Racing in 2012, Clint Bowyer has consistently struggled at Atlanta. His career-best finish with this team was a 27th in 2012 and his last two efforts ended in the high 30s.

Bowyer has not gotten off to a much stronger start this week with a 25th-best effort in qualification. That position would probably have been worse if not for 13 cars that failed to clear the inspection line, so Bowyer is probably best left in the garage. His all-time career best on this track is sixth, which he earned four times. The most recent occasion was back in 2009.

Joey Logano credited an assist from Clint Bowyer as part of the reason he won the Daytona 500, but after pushing the No. 22 into the lead, the No. 15 fell to seventh. That was Bowyer’s third Daytona top-10 in his last four starts.

There were actually quite a few streaks of this kind that were paid off at Daytona this week, but Bowyer is still one of the examples of how difficult plate tracks can be to handicap. His other result in the past four races was a 42nd caused by a blown engine in last year’s 500.

NASCAR got their first taste of group qualification for the Daytona 500 and it is as exciting as the race itself. Clint Bowyer and Reed Sorenson got into one another on at least two occasions in the first round. They finally wrecked and collected Denny Hamlin, Bobby Labonte, and JJ Yeley.

While qualification has never been particularly predictive of how drivers will run in race trim, the multi-car group qualification is as close as it gets. The damage will not seriously impact Bowyer or Hamlin, but it could be extremely costly to the low-budget teams.
Feb 15 - 1:46 PM

Simply finishing races on restrictor-plate, superspeedways can be a challenging task and Bowyer has been up to it. He has finished on the lead lap in all three Sprint Unlimiteds that he started.

While that is good for drivers, fantasy owners have a higher standard. Bowyer has mostly met them as well with a pair of top-10s in his last two appearances in 2011 and 2012. He missed the last two editions of this race.
