Jayhawks fan Clint Bowyer gets 'no' from wife on Final Four trip

NASCAR at Martinsville 2018 Odds fantasy advice prediction sleepers drivers to watch

What's left? California and its 2-mile circuit was the only race where no Stewart-Haas cars finished in the top 10, though Harvick looked pretty fast until he got tangled up with Kyle Larson and crashed out.

While Bowyer was ecstatic, no one was more stoked about the victory than his 3-year-old son, Cash, who has been waiting his whole life to celebrate a victory with his dad. Cash then responded by telling his dad he wanted the checkered flag.

Both father and son got their wish. That race will resume at 11 a.m. ET Monday, with the NASCAR Cup series STP 500 to follow at approximately 2 p.m. ET.

While Bowyer was expected to perform better after Stewart-Haas Racing saved him from an agonizing year in limbo for HScott Motorsports, he only knocked on the door in 2017 with a trio of second-place finishes and a third at Martinsville in the fall.

"For whatever reason, it felt right driving up here". Such a good place, driving up here through the countryside, two lane road thinking about the race. Every stop we got better.

The race victor was Clint Bowyer.

Bowyer then went into the stands to greet the fans who returned to Martinsville two days after a snowstorm pushed all track activity to Monday. The move to SHR was supposed to turn Bowyer's fortunes around, but his struggles continued through his first year in the No. 14 Ford. So it was natural, after he won Monday at Martinsville Speedway for the first time since October 2012, for him to wonder about going to watch his beloved Jayhawks in the Final Four.




It was an atypical performance from a driver who had led all of 145 laps in the past four years.

Bowyer, 38, held off Kyle Busch over the final 114 laps to score the ninth Cup win of his career. The following year Bowyer was prominently involved in a cheating scandal that culminated with Michael Waltrip Racing being slapped with a record $300,000 fine by NASCAR and teammate Martin Truex Jr. getting booted out of the playoffs.

Being named Stewart's successor brought with it a lot of pressure, made more so by the fact SHR had firmly entrenched itself as an upper echelon organization flush with resources and capital.

Jimmie Johnson: The all-time active leader in victories at Martinsville needed a strong performance Monday to get his season back on track, and a 15th-place finish is just that. Probably a great win for him, obviously a very long time. "You start to question if you can get it done or not". Since then. nothing. No victories, anyway.

The result was Truex's fifth top-10 finish in his last seven races at NASCAR's shortest track. He fell back out of the top five, and stayed in third for much of the rest of the race. Later, in victory lane, Clint Bowyer hugged the Martinsville signature trophy grandfather clock, chugged several beers, and let his son soak in his first post-race celebration.

"I felt like I had some good observations after second practice (on Saturday) on some things I wanted to change, and they seemed to pay off big during the race", Bowman said.

"We learned a lot, passed some cars and brought the vehicle home with all the fenders on it so all in all it was a good day", said Kennington. What do you do?
