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.

Clint Bowyer finished 22nd in last week’s Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. That was his best result in three races with the No. 15 HScott Motorsports team.

It is too soon to tell if that was the result of Bowyer finally getting some changes to the car that made him comfortable or simply the luck of the "Free Pass"/"Wave Around" draw and a lead lap finish. In either event, Phoenix is a drivers’ track and that could play into Bowyer’s favor this week. Watch him closely in practice for the Good Sam 500.

A multi-car accident triggered when Brian Vickers cut a tire marred the early stages of the Sprint Unlimited. When he came across the track, he collected Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, and Greg Biffle.

Sometimes there is simply no escaping bad luck.

In his new ride with HScott Motorsports, Clint Bowyer should be this year’s best dark horse for the Daytona 500. In 40 career starts on plate tracks, he has the second-best career average finish with a 15.05.

Equally impressive, Bowyer has been consistently strong of both restrictor-plate, superspeedways. He has an average finish of 14.9 at Talladega SuperSpeedway and 15.2 at Daytona International Speedway.

Clint Bowyer will have Visine eye drops on the hood of his car in 2016 for three races, according to NASCAR.com. These races will be at Auto Club Speedway in March, Texas Motor Speedway in April, and Pocono Raceway in June.

In addition, Visine will be an associate sponsor and marketing partner for the rest of the season. Even though this is a one-year deal before Bowyer moves to Stewart-Haas Racing, look for the team to be competitive often and that could make them a productive dark horse.

NASCAR announced the 25 eligible drivers and the format for the season-opening 75-lap Sprint Unlimited at the new Daytona International Speedway motorsports stadium on Saturday, Feb. 13.

Once again, the non-points event will be split into two segments with a competition caution at lap 25 separating the segments. The 25 eligible NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers include the 2015 Coors Light Pole Award winners, former Sprint Unlimited race winners and former Daytona 500 pole winners who competed full time in 2015. All 16 drivers from the 2015 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup are also eligible for the race, and any remaining open positions are filled based on 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship driver points. Eligible 2015 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers: Clint Bowyer, Jamie McMurray, Paul Menard and Ryan Newman.-NASCAR.com

Clint Bowyer nearly found himself without a ride for the 2016 season. His then-current team Michael Waltrip Racing ceased operations and the car he will drive in 2017 has one more season with Tony Stewart behind the wheel. That left him struggling to take a sponsor someplace that would provide sufficient exposure.

Bowyer will replace Justin Allgaier in the No. 51 and will undoubtedly help that team improve their performance from an average of 27.7. They will not earn the same 18.8 of Bowyer and the No. 15, however, so split the difference and expect a finish somewhere in the low-20s.

Clint Bowyer (#15 5-hour Energy Toyota Camry) was credited with a 43rd place DNF in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

He started 24th in the lineup and completed 45 laps of the 267-lap event before exiting the race (Accident). Bowyer, who competed in all of the season's 36 races, scored two top-fives, 12 top-10s and closed out the season 17th in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings.

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 CampingWorld.com 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 CampingWorld.com 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.
