Clint Bowyer posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Geico 500 at Talladega. His top speed was 200.385 mph.

That simply means that he had the best run on another driver for one lap in practice, but it is important to get a positive mental attitude before Sunday and winning practice is one way to do that.

Even small streaks are hard to create and maintain at Talladega. Clint Bowyer is one of only three drivers entered this week with back-to-back top-10s there. He finished 10th last fall and was third this spring.

Bowyer also has one of the best recent streaks on this track. In 2010 and 2011 he finished either first or second in three consecutive races, which were part of a five-race, top-10 streak.

Clint Bowyer has been hovering around the top 10 at Charlotte for the past three seasons, but he slipped to 17th this spring.

Bowyer’s average finish in five races since the beginning of 2012 has been 10th, but staying in contact with the leaders allowed him to stretch his fuel in the fall 2012 Bank of America 500 and win.

Clint Bowyer has become increasingly strong during each Chase race. He finished 39th at Chicagoland, was 14th at New Hampshire, and ninth at Dover in the AAA 400.

That made him one of three non-Chase contenders to score top-10s last week. It is a point of pride to be one of the drivers who upset the Chasers dominance and Bowyer would like to challenge the Chip Ganassi Racing duo for that place of honor. This strong run indicates that he is heading in the right direction.

Clint Bowyer has the longest active top-10 streak at Dover. He has finished that well in his last seven consecutive races.

Bowyer’s best finish in that span was the fourth he earned this spring in the FedEx 400. He qualified ninth for Sunday’s AAA 400 and has a good chance to keep his streak alive. At his level in most salary cap games, he should be considered a good value.

Clint Bowyer had a bad time at Chicagoland in the MyAFibStory.com 400 and also finished in the high 30s at Atlanta, but there is a reason to believe he could rebound this week at New Hampshire—and that can be found in his recent short, flat track record.

Bowyer finished sixth this summer in the Camping World RV Sales 301 and was third two weeks ago in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond. The No. 15 team apparently has a good baseline setup for flat tracks of one-mile in length or less because Bowyer was also ninth in the Martinsville spring race.

Clint Bowyer has struggled most of the year on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. In six starts during the regular season, he has only one top-10 and two top-20s on them.

Bowyer’s single top-10 on this track type came in the Duck Commander 500 at Texas. With the predominance of unrestricted, intermediate speedways on the schedule, drivers have difficulty amassing points when they struggle there.

Clint Bowyer did almost everything he needed to Saturday night in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond. He ran second to Brad Keselowski for a while, spent about 375 laps in the top five, and finished third—but came up just shy of earning enough points to overtake Greg Biffle for the final spot in the Chase for the Championship.

Bowyer was disappointed, but remarked after the race that this team was not quite strong enough to contend for a championship. Missing the Chase gives them a chance to concentrate on basics and improve their program without the added stress of being in NASCAR’s version of the playoffs.

Clint Bowyer will drive chassis No. 798 at Richmond in the Federated Auto Parts 400. It was last raced at New Hampshire, where is finished sixth.

This chassis has also been raced at Phoenix to a 13th-place finish, Auto Club (16th), and Richmond. Bowyer finished only 43rd in the Toyota Owners 400, but that was caused by damage from a blown tire.

After his involvement in "spin-gate" last fall and a tire failure this spring, Clint Bowyer looks to regain this momentum at Richmond.

Bowyer’s two most recent races prior to last fall ended in a victory in the 2012 Federated Auto Parts 400 and a second the following spring, so there is reason to be hopeful. He could make the Chase based on points, but a more certain path to the playoffs would be a victory on Saturday night.

Clint Bowyer once earned four sixth-place finishes at Atlanta in five races from 2007 through 2009. In the six races since then, he has only one more top-20, which was a seventh in fall 2010.

That drops Bowyer’s most recent six-race average to 26.8 on this track and calls into question his usefulness as a fantasy pick. Until practice and qualification, the driver of the No. 15 is simply one to watch.
Aug 28 - 6:43 PM

Clint Bowyer finished 17th in the Irwin Tools Night Race and is clinging to one of the final Chase berths. He sits 31 points ahead of the cutoff, but lost five points to Kyle Larson this week.

Bowyer can afford to play a little defense in the coming weeks, which will make him a more predictable value than if he needed to swing for the fences and gamble on winning at Atlanta or Richmond.
Aug 24 - 6:42 PM

Clint Bowyer has an active streak of five consecutive top-15s at Bristol that includes top-five finishes in spring 2012 and 2013.

Bowyer’s last two results have been in the top 15, however, which suggests the tide may be turning. He is a solid mid-cap pick, but will not anchor many rosters.
Aug 21 - 12:17 PM

Clint Bowyer recorded only the 16th-best average running position (15.210) on Sunday in the Pure Michigan 400, but he climbed into the top 10 during the next-to-last caution period. He held on to finish sixth.

Bowyer ran outside the top 10 for most of the day, posting only about 35 laps inside that mark, but he timed his final pit stop correctly and finished well. In NASCAR it is often important to be both lucky and fast.
