Well, to call this season a roller coaster for the Kansas Kid would be an understatement. Clint Bowyer started out slow...got hot in the spring and into the summer, but now that summer is turning into fall, Bowyer is once again having a hard time. Maybe it the strain that 4 cars really seems to have on Richard Childress Racing. the last time they had four cars they all missed the chase, and this time it looks like three of the four cars will miss the chase, including Clint. Or maybe it's the strain that not having a contract put on the team.
In any event, Bowyer finished 36 in the rain delayed race at Atlanta, after a late race dust up with Juan Pablo Montoya. He is now 14th in the points and needs a win and a little help in order to make the Chase for the Championship field.
