Fox NASCAR announcer and Kansas City Chiefs superfan Clint Bowyer has made a bet with a former teammate for today’s Super Bowl.

One year after beating the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 31-20 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida to win their second Lombardi Trophy, the Kansas City Chiefs are back in the Super Bowl.

The Chiefs are set to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida this evening.

Fox NASCAR announcer and Chiefs superfan Clint Bowyer, who retired from driving after last season, got to experience the team’s first Super Bowl title of his lifetime last year.

And in doing so, he won a bit with 49ers fan Jeff Gordon.

Gordon, the four-time Cup Series champion who also retired from driving and made his way to the Fox booth like Bowyer is slated to do for the 2021 season, was forced to wear a Chiefs jersey during a Fox NASCAR broadcast last year as a result of the friendly bet between the two.

Now Bowyer is going for two. This year, he has made a similar bet with Buccaneers fan Aric Almirola, who was one of his teammates at Stewart-Haas Racing from the 2018 season to the 2020 season.

Gordon was quick to remind Almirola how that worked out for him last year.

Of course, he didn’t actually post any pictures of the embarrassment.

Super Bowl LV is set to be broadcast live on CBS from Raymond James Stadium beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET this evening. It is slated to be the first Super Bowl to feature one of the two teams playing at their home stadium, with that team being the Buccaneers.

The matchup is also the first Super Bowl matchup to feature a regular season rematch since the New England Patriots faced off against the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI back in February of 2012. Back in late November, the Chiefs beat the Buccaneers by a score of 27-24.

Excluding the regular season finale against the Los Angeles Chargers in which the Chiefs used several backups as starters, both teams are undefeated since then.
