KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Clint Bowyer says he's accepted that his championship hopes are over and will focus on helping his Richard Childress Racing teammates chase the Sprint Cup title.
An appeals committee this week denied RCR's appeal to have Bowyer's championship-ended penalty overturned. He was docked 150 points by NASCAR because the car he drove to victory Sept. 11 at New Hampshire failed inspection.
Bowyer said Friday at Kansas Speedway he is disappointed his appeal was denied, but wants to move past the controversy.
He is 12th in the standings and trails leader Denny Hamlin by 235 points with eight races remaining in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
