Clint Bowyer

It’s no secret that moving to Hscott Motorsports wasn’t the best idea for Clint Bowyer career wise. The team is obviously underfunded, under equipped  and doesn’t seem to have it takes to compete with the big teams of the sprint Cup Series on their best day. Not only that, Bowyer has continued to take out his frustrations by making an ass of himself to the media whenever he gets a chance.

Sure, Bowyer has two top-ten finishes this season, the latest one coming at Talladega Superspeedway, but his lack of speed and a good setup from his team is robbing the Kansas native of being able to keep up with his competition in the Sprint Cup Series. It’s also lowering his driver value, as teams wonder if Bowyer is able to keep a calm head and good demeanor even when things are going bad.

Who knows! Maybe Bowyer will surprise everyone with a win and get HScott Motorsports their first ever win and a Chase appearance. Either that, or Bowyer will continue to slide down the points standings count down the days until he takes over Tony Stewart’s ride at Stewart Haas  Racing.
