Clint Bowyer was the second driver after Ricky Stenhouse Jr. who slapped the wall during the first round of qualification for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway.
Bowyer was not able to recover and posted only the 31st fastest lap of 187.246 mph. Bowyer is on the cusp of being a dark horse most weeks, but fantasy players will need to wait until Saturday’s practice to decide if he is a good value at his cap level. Oct 14 - 6:45 PM

Trevor Bayne was the first driver who failed to advance to the second round of qualification at Kansas Speedway; he will roll off the grid 25th.

His lap of 188.376 was .013 seconds slower than Kyle Larson. This will be Bayne’s worst ever qualification in five efforts at Kansas, which makes him questionable to earn a fourth career top-15 there.

Clint Bowyer should finish somewhere near 20th this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Five of six similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track races this year have ended in results of 19th to 23rd.

The unrestricted, intermediate speedways are not traditional strongholds for lightly-funded teams and that suggests Bowyer has been a big part of helping dial in the HScott Motorsports Chevrolet.

Clint Bowyer spun during his get-up-to-speed lap in qualification for the Bad Boy Off Road 300. He scrubbed his tires and failed to take a time.

The good news was that his spin stopped the clock because next year’s teammate Kevin Harvick and owner Tony Stewart had not yet cleared inspection. Austin Dillon rolled onto pit road as NASCAR checked the track. Bowyer’s spin at Richmond International Raceway several years ago controversially elevated Martin Truex Jr. into the Chase—momentarily. Déjà vu.

Clint Bowyer posted the 24th fastest lap in the second practice session for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.

Bowyer started last year’s edition of this race in Chase contention, but only 26th when the lineup was set by practice times. This week he starts 28th based on points. One season can make a huge difference and Bowyer is almost certain to finish worse than the 19th he scored in 2015.

Besides driving his regular No. 15 Toyota in Sunday's Sprint Cup Series race at Chicagoland Speedway, Clint Bowyer will take his turn in the JR Motorsports (JRM) No. 88 Morton Buildings Chevrolet Camaro for Saturday's XFINITY Series (NXS) Drive for Safety 300.

This will be Bowyer's first NXS race since 2012. He has totaled 180 NXS starts, with eight series wins to his credit. The Kansas native has one top five and four top 10s in five NXS races at the 1.5-mile speedway.-JR Motorsports

Clint Bowyer has finished on the lead lap in his last four Darlington Raceway attempts with a worst finish of 17th coming in last year’s Bojangles' Southern 500.

Bowyer has struggled greatly this season in his transitional year at HScott Motorsports. In order to finish on the lead lap, he is going to have to race within his ability and the limitations of the car. He cannot afford to stripe the right side very hard. In three races prior to his current Darlington streak, he finished off the lead lap and worse than he qualified.

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.

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.
Jul 3 - 12:48 AM

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.
