PLAYERS: Clint Bowyer
No. 15 5-hour ENERGY Toyota crew chief Brian Pattie is bringing two proven race winning chassis to the racetrack over the next two weeks as he tries to close the gap on the points leaders. Bowyer is third in the point standings trailing leader Jimmie Johnson by 26 points with three races remaining. Pattie is bringing Chassis No. 740 for Sunday’s AAA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway—the same car that visited victory lane for the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte. And he is preparing his Richmond race-winning car for the following week at Phoenix. CAR SELECTION:“I got the Charlotte winner going to Texas and I have the Richmond winner going to Phoenix. Homestead we’ll just have to see what happens. I’m taking the car that we won with at Richmond and that’s going to be our car at Phoenix. I just want to make sure that we are prepared and ready. Turning the Martinsville car around last minute and getting it on a truck that leaves next Tuesday didn’t make me feel like I’d be well prepared in ti...

NASCAR: Clint Bowyer and Kasey Kahne look to make history in title race

If Clint Bowyer or Kasey Kahne can capture the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship, they will have made history. The title would be the largest deficit anyone made up with three races remaining since Dale Earnhardt did it in 1990. Bowyer and Kahne sit 26 and 29 points behind points leader Jimmie Johnson respectively and have a decent chance at chasing down history. Earnhardt...

Can Clint Bowyer win the Sprint Cup title?

The high flying Michael Waltrip Racing house of speed is getting shockingly close to rubbing shoulders with Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing, Roush Fenway Racing, and more such NASCAR team elites. With their third win of the season earlier this month at Charlotte courtesy of Clint Bowyer’s fuel reserves, the organization is moving in on legitimate championship contention...

Field of true Chase contenders slims

After this weekend's race at Martinsville Speedway and looking forward, I feel like we're down to three, maybe three-and-a-half men, who have a shot at the championship. Denny Hamlin and his group took such a hit after the mechanical failure at Martinsville that being able to recover from the amount of points they lost in Sunday's race is going to be next to impossible...

How many drivers still in title hunt?

NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup is now definitely no more than a four-horse race. My gut tells me it's a two-horse race and that's the two guys at the top separated by only two points. Everyone keeps waiting for one of those guys to have a really bad race. So far, the only blemish that points leader Jimmie Johnson has had was the 17th-place finish after the crash at...

Lurking In The Shadows

Michael Waltrip Racing's Clint Bowyer and Hendrick Motorsports' Kasey Kahne are not bothered by the notion of calling the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup a two-driver race between leader Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski.    Bowyer, who trails Johnson by 26 points, and Kahne, who trails by 29, head to Texas Motor Speedway looking for a strong result in Sunday's AAA...

Jimmie Johnson: ‘Wild Asphalt Circus?’ No Thanks with Tight Chase Battle at Texas

Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth is calling this weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AAA Texas 500 festivities the “Wild Asphalt Circus.” While the action on the track is sure to be wild, new Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship points leader Jimmie Johnson hopes it’s anything but a circus.Johnson heads to the 1.5-mile oval first in the standings by a mere two points...
