- Richard Childress Racing 2008 - present
Clint Bowyer has spent a few wonderful years at the NASCAR Sprint Series Cup. He began racing at an extremely early age and was get much recognition up until 2003. At the age of 5, Clint began racing and was mostly dedicated to the Motocross arena.
In 2002, he won two NASCAR Dodge Weekly race titles and jumped into the forefront of NASCAR racing. Richard Childress, the owner of RC Racing saw Bowyer perform at a 2003 ARCA event in Nashville. Richard was impressed by Clint’s second place finish and decided that he wanted to see more of the man. He also won the NASCAR Weekly Series in the Midwest Regional Championships in 2002.
Clint got the chance to compete full time at NASCAR championships from 2004. Although in 2003, he did participate in the Midwest Regional Championships, he didn’t achieve anything of note. After a 2004 that was spent mainly in range-finding and acclimatization he began a full fledged assault on the title in 2005. He finished the Series in 69th place but that was just after one race that he took part in, for the entire season. He started the one-off race in 25th place and finished up at 22nd. Although he came second in the overall standings of the Nationwide Series, he was planning to move into the NASCAR Sprint Cup for the 2006 season.
In 2006, he made a dramatic improvement mainly due to a full season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Season. He began his year with a sixth place finish and for the first four weeks, was ranked tenth in the points’ list.
His wonderful 2006 season was followed by another brilliant season in 2007 where he won his first race on the very first race of the season. A second place finish at Kansas saw him move up to the third place in the Chase and for the remainder of the season, he stayed in third.
After a sensational third place last season, Clint will be looking to make further improvements to his rankings this season and a confident performance is all that he needs.
