Clint Bowyer scored his first top-five in his last 53 starts when he crossed under the checkers third in the Auto Club 400.
"It felt good just to be a part of the camera shot again," he said after the race. Bowyer has been rebuilding his confidence this year after a difficult 2016. While he has missed the top five all year, he now has a four-race streak of top-15s and is still moderately priced enough in most games to be an excellent value. Mar 26 - 7:10 PM

Clint Bowyer was shut out of the top-20 on short, flat tracks while driving for HScott Motorsports last year. His best results were a pair of 22nds at Richmond International Raceway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Bowyer improved in all but one of the eight short, flat track races last year, but still did not earn enough points to recommend him on that record alone. He is in a new, much stronger ride this year, however, and Bowyer is virtually guaranteed to finish in the teens or better if he stays out of trouble.

Clint Bowyer threatened to finish in the top 10 in his first two attempts with Stewart-Haas Racing. At Las Vegas Motor Speedway, he finally carried through and finished 10th in the Kobalt 400.

As accomplishments go, this might not seem like a lot, but this was the first time in his last 30 attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks that he finished in the top 10. He came close at Atlanta Motor Speedway last week with an 11th, and fantasy players will want to pay close attention to him. Bowyer was the highest-finishing SHR driver at Vegas after all three of his teammates experienced trouble.

Clint Bowyer has not scored a top-10 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track in his last 29 starts, dating back to the spring 2014 Texas Motor Speedway race.

This streak now includes races for three different teams, but he came close last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Bowyer finished 11th after starting 25th and was on the lead lap for the ninth time in that span. Bowyer will get a top-10 on this track type sometime in 2017, but until he posts back-to-back lead lap finishes, he is not recommended.
Mar 10 - 11:19 AM

Clint Bowyer posted a lap of 186.522 mph in round one of qualification for the race 24500 and was the first driver who failed to advance to the second session.

Bowyer had a big moment in turns one and two and could not quite make that back up in three/four. Bowyer will line up 25th and that is going to hurt his handicap. Bowyer is looking to rebound from a challenging 2016.
Mar 3 - 6:12 PM

Clint Bowyer has waited two years to take over the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing ride and it was worth it; he finished second in his Can-Am Duel in Daytona.

Bowyer has been solid in modest equipment on plate tracks. He has won in great equipment like he will wheel this weekend. Since he has struggled in recent seasons, he could provide a great differentiation for one’s roster.

Clint Bowyer has scored five top-10s in his last seven Daytona International Speedway in good equipment; this season, he climbs into Tony Stewart’s old ride and should challenge for a top-five.

Bowyer has been consistently strong while running for Richard Childress Racing, Michael Waltrip Racing and even HScott Motorsports. This year, he will have solid drafting partners with the rest of his SHR partners and that will make a big difference if he is near the front in the final laps of the Daytona 500.
Feb 14 - 1:59 PM

Clint Bowyer had an average finish of 11.5 in his last six attempts at Talladega SuperSpeedway, which makes that his best track during the past three years.

One usually notices dark horse teams with best records on restrictor-plate, superspeedways. In a way, this points to the struggles faced by Bowyer in the past few seasons at the end of his tenure with Michael Waltrip Racing and during his transitional year with HScott Motorsports. Do not expect too much from him in the coming season and allow him to get comfortable at Stewart-Haas Racing before committing resources.

Clint and Lorra Bowyer welcomed a new addition to the family with the birth of their daughter Presley Elizabeth on Friday.

Presley is their second child, joining a brother Cash.

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."

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.
