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. Aug 15 - 8:31 PM

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.

Clint Bowyer was one of the top sleepers at Sonoma Raceway this June in the Toyota / Save Mart 350, but an electrical failure sidelined him only five laps into the race. He finished 40th.

The reasons to think of him as a dark horse that weekend still exist, however. Bowyer earned top-10s in eight of his previous 10 road course attempts and was 11th in another event. This is the type of track that rewards driver skill as a greater percentage of the total package and the more modest funding for the No. 15 should not come into play.

Clint Bowyer had the slowest 10-lap average of 11 drivers who went that far in the final practice session for the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard. His speed of 173.782 mph was set during his first 10 laps on the track.

Bowyer has been uneven this season and it appears that will not stop anytime soon. With only the 28th fastest single lap in final practice and 32nd in the first session, he is simply too great a risk.

Clint Bowyer finished ninth in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway to earn his third top-10 of 2016.

Notably, one of his other two top-10s came on the sister track of Talladega SuperSpeedway. The draft is a great equalizer and Bowyer’s skill in heavy traffic allowed him to minimize crash damage en route to this result.

Clint Bowyer has finished in the top 10 eight times in the past 10 road course races. One of his attempts that failed to crack that mark landed 11th on the grid.

Bowyer has a knack for road racing so his seat inside the HScott Motorsports Chevrolet should not be much of a detriment. He might not quite crack the top-10, but he should be able to contend for a result in the low-teens.

In the past eight races, Clint Bowyer has improved by nearly 11 positions over the first seven events of this season. He averaged a finish of 28.85 through the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway and then finished eighth at Bristol Motor Speedway. Since then, he has scored an average result of 17.88.

It seems to have taken a while for Bowyer to get comfortable in the No. 51. Now that he has found his rhythm, he is becoming a solid fantasy value and that will continue until cap managers catch up to his potential.

Brad Keselowski, Martin Truex Jr., Clint Bowyer, and Michael Annett were late to the first qualification session after their cars had difficulty passing inspection at Michigan International Speedway for the Firekeepers Casino 400.

NASCAR delayed qualification because it took a while to clear the field with the new aerodynamic package, but when these cars failed inspection they were sent to the back of the line. Keselowski and Bowyer cleared about three minutes into the first session, but they were rushed to the line. Truex finally passed with 15 minutes remaining in round 1.

Clint Bowyer has scored three top-10s in his last four starts on the 2.5-mile flat tracks of Pocono Raceway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. His best effort in that span of races came in the August 2014 400 when he finished fourth.

Bowyer has the added incentive of keeping a long streak of running on the lead lap intact. On these two courses, he has gone the full distance in his last 30 attempts, which dates back to 2008. Nearly all of those races ended in top-20 results, so he could be a great differentiator this week if he helps stretch one’s salary cap.

Clint Bowyer has scored 10 consecutive top-15s at Dover, which contributes to making this his second-best track in terms of career average finishes. Start to end, he has finished 11.9 in 20 starts.

Another key to his success is that Bowyer has been running at the end of every Dover race he started. His last six races have ended on the lead lap, but he is going to need a little help from cautions to keep that streak alive.

Clint Bowyer will make a return to NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) competition with JR Motorsports (JRM).

Bowyer, a veteran racer and 19-time NASCAR national series winner, will drive JRM’s No. 88 Morton Buildings Chevrolet Camaro at Chicagoland Speedway (Sept. 17). Bowyer, who currently races full-time for HScott Motorsports in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, is named as the ninth driver to pilot JRM’s No. 88 "All-Star" Chevrolet in 2016. He joins Josh Berry, Alex Bowman, Cole Custer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Chase Elliott, Kenny Habul, Kevin Harvick and Regan Smith. In nine starts this season, the team holds two wins (Daytona and Richmond), five top-five and eight top-10 finishes.-JRM

Clint Bowyer earned his second top-10 in the last three races by finishing seventh at Talladega SuperSpeedway. He was also eighth at Bristol Motor Speedway and those two top-10s could give the No. 15 team the momentum needed to score their first top-20 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track this season.

Bowyer came close with a 22nd at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in March and needs only a little nudge to get those extra two spots. That was the only time in three races on this track type in 2016 that he finished on the same lap as the leaders.
May 3 - 10:01 AM

Clint Bowyer finished seventh in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway after starting 34th. This is his fifth top-10 finish in his last six starts on this track.

Notably, it is also his second top-10 of the season after finishing eighth at Bristol Motor Speedway. It is too soon to form a bandwagon for the driver and team, but momentum has been gained with less success.
May 1 - 6:39 PM

Clint Bowyer finally had caution flags fall his way, which put him on the lead lap and among the contenders at the end of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. He finished eighth after starting deep in the field in 36th.

That was not only the first top-10 scored by this driver/team combination, but it earned 28 place-differential points for his fantasy owners. It is too soon to form a bandwagon for the No. 15, but this is the fifth time in the past six races of 2016 that he finished better than he started.
Apr 17 - 7:00 PM

For the first time this season, Clint Bowyer finished in front of more than half the field at Auto Club Speedway. He crossed under the checkers 18th after starting 29th.

Bowyer has not improved this team as much as fantasy owners wanted, but his last three races have all ended better than they started. The team could be heading in the right direction, but players will want to be patient nonetheless.
