Clint Bowyer – A Racing Great
After just four years of racing with NASCAR, Clint Bowyer has already achieved almost legendary status. Fans flock to the racetrack to see him perform and he almost always gives them the satisfaction of seeing him drive a good race.
Born in 1979 in Kansas, Bowyer started to get involved in racing at the tender age of five. Back then his sport of choice was motocross. During his first eight years involved in this sport, Bowyer managed to capture more than 200 wins, as well as a number of championships. At 17 years of age he made the change to street stocks at the Thunderhill Speedway in Mayetta, Kansas. Four years later he won the Modified championship at the same track. He went on to enjoy 18 wins and 32 top-five finishes during the course of the following year before taking the 2001 Modified Championships trophy at the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City. The following year he made the change to NASCAR racing, taking 12 wins and 32 top-five finishes during the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series. It was also during this year that he had his first race on asphalt.
Today Bowyer is known for being one of the most versatile drivers on the tracks. He not only races NASCAR, but has also won a number of truck racing championships and modifieds championships. However, it is his career as a NASCAR driver that he is most famous for. After being picked to race for Richard Childress in the NASCAR championships, Bowyer has been making history. He started racing with Childress in 2004 and has never looked back. He went on to enjoy several very successful seasons and top-ten finishes. On top of all his NASCAR success, he also took the Craftsman Truck Series Champion title. It seems that Bowyer will only continue to go from strength to strength and perhaps that is why his fans love him so much.
