Clint Bowyer enters the weekend with a four-race streak of results eighth or better and a seven-race, top-15 string. He posted the ninth-fastest time in Friday’s practice and should be able to keep his streak alive.

The unknown factor in regard to Bowyer is that his team is running their last race this week and he will be headed elsewhere in 2016. He could be a strong differentiator, but cannot be considered a favorite in most games.

Clint Bowyer entered the spring STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway with a six-race streak of top-10s. He slipped slightly and finished 13th that weekend.

Bowyer entered with a similar record at Talladega SuperSpeedway last week and he rebounded to finish eighth. Bowyer has to be considered one of this week’s favorites to score another top-10 and at his salary cap level, he could be the best value in the field.

Clint Bowyer earned his ninth top-10 in the past 12 Talladega SuperSpeedway races. He advanced from 29th to eighth in this race and earned 21 place-differential points.

This was Bowyer’s first top-10 during the six playoff races and a lack of performance in the Challenger round is why he is not currently Chase eligible. That does not mean he will not be a good fantasy value, however, as the series visits Martinsville Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway in the coming weeks.

With only a few cars remaining on pit road in qualification for the 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, Clint Bowyer backed into the nose of Justin Allgaier’s car. The damage to Bowyer’s car was insignificant, but he qualified outside the top 25 in 29th nevertheless. Allgaier was more severely damaged and will start the 500 39th.

Talladega is home to some truly strange occurrences. Bowyer was baffled as to why the car was in reverse when he thought the car was in first.

HScott Motorsports announced today it has reached an agreement with Old World Industries (OWI) to sponsor Clint Bowyer's Chevrolet during the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup season with brands PEAK Antifreeze & Motor Oil and BlueDEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid.

The OWI brands will be featured as primary sponsor at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International and Chicagoland Speedway, and as an associate sponsor for all remaining races during 2016. Bowyer will race for HScott Motorsports in a technical alliance with Hendrick Motorsports and Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) in 2016. SHR announced Sept. 30 that Bowyer will drive SHR's No. 14 Chevrolet in 2017 replacing Tony Stewart who'll retire at the end of the 2016 season.-HScott Motorsports

Both Michael Waltrip Racing drivers posted 10-lap averages that place them in the top 10 this week. Clint Bowyer had the sixth-fastest speed of 184.58 mph during his best 10 laps. David Ragan was eighth-quick at 184.29. In addition, Bowyer also had the ninth-best, five-lap average.

For the MWR racers, this represents an opportunity race. Bowyer has settled his plans for the next few years, but he wants a top-10 for his crewmembers. Ragan’s plans are still uncertain and he needs a strong run in order to land another job.

Clint Bowyer finished the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway respectably in 14th, but it was a far cry from the victory he needed in order to advance to the Contender round as one of the Chasers.

Bowyer finished 50 points behind the cutoff position, which meant that his 25-point penalty for an illegal truck arm at Chicagoland Speedway did not impact his ability to advance. Now that this team is out of playoff contention, it is likely their results will soften and crew members will start to move to other teams if offers come through. The No. 15 team will not field a car in 2016.
Oct 5 - 1:48 PM

Clint Bowyer enters the weekend with a nine-race streak of Dover International Speedway top-10s and is well-favored to earn another after starting the AAA 400 16th.

Bowyer is in a must-win situation if the wants to advance to the Contender round, however, and that is a long shot at a track where he has only two top-fives in 19 starts. This week his 2015 and 2016 plans were announced and if he fails to make the next round, the desire to gamble on strong runs could disappear. Start Bowyer at Dover, but evaluate him in the coming weeks.
Oct 2 - 8:19 PM

Clint Bowyer’s interim 2016 ride has been announced. He will race for H Scott Motorsports next year, according to NBC’s Dustin Long. Neither the car number nor potential teammates has been announced yet.

What has been announced is that Bowyer will continue to have sponsorship from 5-Hour Energy and the extra funding should help this team improve. In 2015, Justin Allgaier has had some strong runs for the organization and that gives them a firm foundation.
Oct 2 - 1:57 PM

When Tony Stewart retires at the end of 2016, he plans to turn the No. 14 over to Clint Bowyer, according to NBC’s Nate Ryan.

This leaves Bowyer in an uncertain situation for 2016, but someone will undoubtedly pick him up for a year. His fantasy relevance for the remainder of 2015 and through next year will depend on how he performs at Dover International Speedway this week and how fast an announcement is made about his interim plans.

Clint Bowyer was the only Chase contending driver who failed to advance to the top 24 in Friday’s qualification session. His top speed of 135.772 mph was good enough to only place him 26th on the grid.

With a modest run at Chicagoland Speedway and a 25-point penalty that is currently under appeal, Bowyer can ill afford a bad run on Sunday. His pit selection will hamper his Sylvania 300 effort.
Sep 25 - 5:11 PM

Clint Bowyer has been docked 25 driver points for a P4 penalty at Chicagoland Speedway, according to NBC’s Dustin Long. Crew chief Billy Scott has been suspended for three races stemming from an illegal track bar. Michael Waltrip Racing is appealing the penalty.

If it is upheld, this drops Bowyer from 15th to 16th in the standings and will make it difficult for him to advance from the Challenger round. He was already in a hole after finishing second-worst among Chase contenders at Chicagoland.

Clint Bowyer did what he needed to Saturday night and scored a 10th-place finish in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway to secure his spot in the Chase for the Championship. He wounded up 15th in the ranking.

Clint Bowyer simply needed to have a strong finish in the Federated Auto Parts 400 to clinch his spot, but in order to give himself a little breathing room, he needed to get ahead of Paul Menard in the standings. He needed that cushion because Aric Almirola was making a determined bid to add his name to the winners’ list, which would have moved the Chase cutoff line by one position. When the checkers waved, he had a six-point advantage over Menard.
Sep 13 - 12:41 PM

Clint Bowyer is one of five drivers most likely to qualify for the Chase based on points instead of a win, but he is the lowest ranked of them at the moment. He needs to run well in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday night, but he did not do himself any favors in qualification. He failed to advance to the final round and lines up 26th.

It would appear that he is also struggling with the car in race trim because he posted only the 21st-quickest, 10-lap average in final practice. With two victories, Richmond has been a good track for him in the past, but he still represents a high risk to finish among the top 10. In the past six races on this track, only eight drivers have overcome qualification efforts of 25th or worse to finish that well.
