RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Clint Bowyer's season started with a chance to win the Daytona 500. A late-race wreck ended his opportunity, and set the tone for a miserable opening month.
The low point came after a blown engine at Bristol dropped Bowyer to 24th in the Sprint Cup standings, and there were few indications that his Richard Childress Racing team could climb out of the hole.
Until they did.
Bowyer goes into Saturday night's race at Richmond International Raceway as the hottest driver in series. Four consecutive top-10s, including back-to-back second-place finishes, has vaulted Bowyer all the way up to 10th in the standings.
