NASCAR: Clint Bowyer Blasts Cup Playoff Series Race Weather-Related Delays

by Quentin Blount

NASCAR Cup Series driver Clint Bowyer had some words on Twitter after a third straight day of inclement weather caused the latest playoff race to be delayed.

Continuing rain has halted Tuesday’s attempt at resuming the NASCAR Cup Series Playoff race being held at Texas Motor Speedway.

On Sunday, drivers at the Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500 finished 52 of 334 laps before the weather became too much to handle. Rain also washed out Monday’s attempts to continue the race, pushing it to Tuesday. However, the Cup Series Playoff race was hit with another delay due to a third straight day of inclement weather at the 1.5-mile Fort Worth track.

Bowyer’s No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford is currently leading the race in first place. He is followed by another driver in his final full Cup Series season, Jimmie Johnson in the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet.

Clint Bowyer Tweets, Fans React

Bowyer took to Twitter on Tuesday to express some frustration regarding the rain delays. He joked around saying he needs to start looking for houses in the neighborhood.

“Well I guess I better start looking for a house to purchase around here,” Bowyer wrote on Twitter. “Any recommendations on a good neighborhood?”

One fan on Twitter proposed Bowyer a deal he might not be able to refuse.

“@ClintBowyer we have a spare room! Comes with endless supply of beer.”

Additionally, another fan offered up some good news in light of Bowyer’s frustration with the recent weather delays.

Meanwhile, Bowyer announced earlier this that he would be stepping away from the driver’s seat next season and joining the broadcast booth. He will be working alongside Jeff Gordon and Mike Joy for Fox Sports.

During his 17-year career, Bowyer raced at the Kansas Speedway 32 times, including 24 NASCAR Cup Series Races. He also was a part of six Xfinity Series Races and two Gander Truck Series races – one of which that included a victory.
