BOWYER: “That was a good night for us and MWR. I’m pretty proud of the 5-hour ENERGY guys and everyone at Michael Waltrip Racing. We had a pretty good season and kept our eye on the ball throughout a lot of stuff this season. They could have easily lost focus, but they never gave up and worked like heck. I’ll take some time off and we’ll be ready for testing and go get us a championship in 2014.”
