Bowyer Put On Probation
NASCAR has placed Clint Bowyer, driver of the No. 21 car in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, on probation until June 16 for a rule violation he committed during the race at Dover International Speedway on May 15.
Bowyer was found to have violated Section 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing – aggressive driving) of the 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series Rule Book.
Bowyer was involved in a crash during the race with Denny Hamlin. Bowyer’s car had to go to the pits for repairs.
When he returned to the track, Bowyer immediately slammed into Hamlin. Bowyer was then parked by NASCAR and ordered to report to the NASCAR hauler for a chat with series officials.
The probation covers all three of NASCAR’s major series. Bowyer races full time in the Sprint Cup Series and has been driving the No. 21 Zaxby’s car for Richard Childress Racing since John Wes Townley was taken out of the car.3 Comments
