Michael Waltrip Racing’s No. 15 Toyota will carry a special message of responsibility in Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. Driver Clint Bowyer will drive the Gander Mountain “With Rights Comes Responsibility; Secure Your Firearms” Toyota.
As part of its “With Rights Comes Responsibility; Secure Your Firearms” initiative, Gander Mountain launched www.ResponsibilityPledge.com, where firearms owners and those thinking of becoming an owner can take a pledge of personal responsibility.
Bowyer visits Texas a week after finishing second at Martinsville Speedway. Bowyer ranks eighth in Sprint Cup Series points with 179. He has two top-fives in his last three starts and three top-10s on the season. Last year, Bowyer ranked ninth with one top-five and three top-10s as he headed to Texas.
ON RACING AT TEXAS: “I love Texas. The racing is always good and the track does such a great job of putting on a show both on and off the racetrack for the fans. This is one of the marque events on the schedule and taking home a trophy from Texas is a big deal. I’ve come close, but close doesn’t count. I want to win.”
On GANDER MOUNTAIN’S MESSAGE: “I’m really proud to have Gander Mountain on the racecar for the Texas race, but more importantly I think we carry such a great message ‘With Rights Comes Responsibility; Secure Your Firearms.’ It’s so important to keep that responsibility and to keep firearms out of the hands of the underage, untrained and unauthorized. Gander Mountain has always done such a great job of promoting safety and responsibility. Truthfully that’s why I am so excited to have them on board.”
