LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - Clint Bowyer put the trophy from last year's victory at New Hampshire in his house.
The rest of his memories from that weekend, well, they're not so good.
Bowyer's winning car in the Chase opener flunked inspection and NASCAR levied penalties that ended his championship hopes days after he had positioned himself as a top contender.
Bowyer defended the legality of the car this weekend in his return to New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but he's mostly put the fiasco behind him. Bowyer is seeking a spot for the Chase and hopes a repeat win at New Hampshire, minus the ensuing drama, can lift him back into championship contention.
He's 12th in the standings and needs strong finishes - fast - to make the Chase.
