Bowyer Enters Vermont Governor’s Cup
BARRE, Vt. – Thunder Road Int’l Speedbowl officials announced this morning that NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Clint Bowyer will be participating in the Vermont Lottery Commission Governor’s Cup on July 11.
Bowyer, who currently sits fourth overall in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standings, will pilot a Crazy Horse Racing Toyota Camry in the 150-lap event. His car will be painted to match his No. 15 Michael Waltrip Racing ride that he currently drives in NASCAR’s top division.
“I think Clint Bowyer is about as ‘old school’ a racer as NASCAR has,” said long-time Thunder Road Promoter Tom Curley. “To have guys like Tony Stewart and now Bowyer come to the Governor’s Cup race at the “Nation’s Site of Excitement” is a great thing for our fans and teams at Thunder Road.”
Bowyer has captured eight Sprint Cup victories since his rookie season in 2006 and more than 200 wins and numerous championships in everything from motocross to modifieds. The 2008 NASCAR Nationwide Series champion was runner-up to Brad Keselowski in last year’s Sprint Cup title chase.
“I think he’s one of a kind,” said Thunder Road co-owner Ken Squier. “He’s a top talent in auto racing, and he’s got a lot of personality. I can’t wait to see him duke it out on the high banks with our local guys.”
