Clint Bowyer will race chassis 809 at Pocono in the Pennsylvania 400. It has been raced at Kansas this May and the first Pocono race in June.
Bowyer’s 5-hour Energy 400 effort at Kansas was disappointing with a 23rd-place finish but he apparently learned something to make the chassis better. He narrowly missed finishing in the top 10 in the Pocono 400 with an 11th-place finish. Aug 1 - 7:56 PM

Clint Bowyer posted the fifth fastest lap in practice for the GoBowling.com 400. He topped the charts with a speed of 179.372 mph.

The speed differential between Bowyer and the leader Kurt Busch is nearly one mile per hour, which is significant in modern NASCAR. Race trim is a great equalizer, however, and Bowyer hopes that practice is not rained out on Saturday.

Clint Bowyer has seldom stumbled at Pocono during his career, but he has rarely excelled as well. In his last 12 starts on this track he has a worst finish on only 18th and an average of 11.1, but he has recorded only one top-five. That strong run came in 2009.

Bowyer’s last three Pocono runs have been between 11th and 15th, which is about where fantasy players can expect him to land this week. If he fits ones of the final slots on a roster, that level of consistency makes him a good fantasy value.

Clint Bowyer took advantage of a timely caution on lap 98 to lead a handful of laps in the Brickyard 400. He was unable to hang onto his track position, however, and ultimately slipped to 16th in the final rundown.

Bowyer was pitting just as Trevor Bayne slapped the wall, cut a tire, and crashed. He held the lead for three laps, but was mostly a non-factor for the win with an average running position of 12th. He spent approximately 75 percent of the race in the top 15, however, and was a good value in games where he was priced correctly.

Clint Bowyer finished fourth in his inaugural attempt at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. His next three results were outside the top 10. He rebounded to finish fourth in the 2010 Brickyard 400 and then fell outside the top 10 in his next three attempts.

If the pattern holds, he is due to finish fourth again this week, but his 2014 flat track record tells a different story. In five races this year on this track type he finished between sixth and 13th on four occasions. His best result on minimally-banked courses came last week at New Hampshire, however, so he is a dark horse candidate to finish in the top five.

Clint Bowyer posted the second fastest lap in the first practice session for the Crown Royal 400 with a speed of 186.070 mph.

That lap placed Bowyer 56/1,000ths of a second behind Matt Kenseth, so he should be considered a challenger for the pole. Twenty percent of the previous Brickyard 400s have been won from the front row.

Along with Denny Hamlin, Clint Bowyer is one of two drivers with a current top-10 streak to his credit. He finished ninth at Daytona and sixth at New Hampshire.

While Hamlin struggled through three races prior to the Coke Zero 400, Bowyer also had top-10s at Michigan and Sonoma, which may give him arguably more momentum than the rest of the field. None of his strong runs since Dover have been top-fives, however.

Clint Bowyer is beginning to develop some momentum for the season. After failing to score a top-10 in his first five starts of 2014, he has reversed that trend to score four top-10s in his most recent five races.

Bowyer is one of the drivers who need to worry about both winning and scoring maximum points each week. He sits 10th in the points, but would be ranked 14th if the Chase started next week because of the number of drivers behind him in the standings with victories. This forces the team to take a balanced approach and should dissuade them from adopting risky strategies.

Clint Bowyer quietly remained with the leaders for most of the Camping World RV Sales 301 and crossed under the checkers in sixth.

Bowyer spent approximately 145 laps in the top five on Sunday and earned the fourth-best average running position of 7.003. After finishing 13th at Phoenix and ninth at Martinsville earlier this season, he will be a driver to watch during the next flat track race in two weeks at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Jul 13 - 6:11 PM

Clint Bowyer has earned only one top-10 on the combined flat tracks of Phoenix, Martinsville, Richmond, and Pocono. His best finish there was a ninth in the STP 500.

Bowyer’s success at Martinsville is not a very big recommendation to start him this week since that track is only half the size of New Hampshire, but he should be watched closely because he swept the top five on the Magic Mile in 2012. Last year, his best New Hampshire finish was a 13th.
