Charlotte Race Report

Clint Bowyer Race Summary: No. 15 Raspberry 5-hour ENERGY Benefitting Living Beyond Breast Cancer Toyota driver Clint Bowyer finished 11th in Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The Michael Waltrip Racing driver started 14th and raced into the top five in the race’s final 100 laps and appeared ready to contend for a repeat victory on the 1.5-mile oval. With about 50 laps remaining Bowyer raced in fifth and was one of only three cars that could make it to the end of the race without pitting again. But that optimism turned sour when Bowyer reported problems under the hood of his car. Bowyer backed off his normal pace hoping to make the car live to the finish. A caution with 28 laps left saw Bowyer pit for tires and fuel and restart ninth. He held everything together in the final laps to finish 11th. Bowyer is eighth of 13 drivers after the fifth of 10 races in NASCAR’s 2013 Chase for the Sprint Cup. The team returns to action Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway.

BOWYER: “Man, when it isn’t your day it just isn’t your day. We should have had a top five, but something happened under the hood with about 30 to go and it just killed us. We were looking so good. I nursed it there at the end. (Crew Chief) Brain (Pattie) told me he really wants to race this car in Texas so we did all we could not to wreck the car. If it’s as good at Texas as it was tonight then Texas could be a lot of fun.”
