Daytona Race Report

Clint Bowyer Race Summary: No. 15 BlueDEF Toyota driver Clint Bowyer finished fourth in Saturday night’s 400-mile NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Daytona. The Michael Waltrip Racing driver started third and immediately dropped back in the field to protect himself in the early going. Bowyer worked his way up to 15th at the halfway point as he worked on the handling of his car. Bowyer fell back to 25th following the halfway point where he stayed until the final quarter of the race. With 30 laps remaining, Bowyer worked his way slowly toward the front. A caution came out on lap 150 when a large group of cars wrecked right behind the No. 15. On lap 153, Bowyer restarted 10th and worked his way to third when the final caution came for a wreck right in front of the No. 15 forcing a green-white-checker finish. Bowyer restarted third in the bottom lane for the final restart, but the top lane gained the advantage and the No. 15 finished fourth. The No. 15 team has a streak of three consecutive top-five finishes and moved from third to second in the point standings. The No. 15 5-hour ENERGY team returns to action Sunday, July 14 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

BOWYER: “Well, I just saw all that stuff in the mirror. But, I mean I was pushing Michael (Waltrip) and I got an opportunity to get to the bottom of him and got him passed. And, I was looking in the mirror and all hell broke loose. Man, that’s Daytona. I made a rule with myself at these restrictor-plate tracks to be easy you know -- ride around. It’s boring. You hate to do that for your sponsors -- for your team. You want to be up there racing for every lap led. It’s just kind of been working for me. We got a run up there in the middle with the 9 (Marcos Ambrose). I really didn’t need that caution to come out. Unfortunately, it did and we restarted on the bottom. I knew I was going to be in trouble cause I wouldn’t be able to use that middle. They came through the middle -- I was like, ‘Oh no.’  I was lucky to get back up there. I’ll take a top-five in one of these things any day.”
