CHICAGO (AP) - Clint Bowyer is putting the controversy surrounding his spin at Richmond behind him and turning his focus toward the first race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Bowyer said Thursday he's got nothing left to discuss about the penalties NASCAR levied against Michael Waltrip Racing for its attempts to alter the outcome at Richmond to get Martin Truex Jr. into the 12-driver Chase field. The punishment did not hurt Bowyer's title chances because the 50-point penalties levied against the MWR drivers were done before the Chase seedings.
Bowyer goes into Sunday's Chase opener at Chicago ranked eighth in the field and 15 points behind leader Matt Kenseth. Bowyer said MWR deserved to be penalized for its actions at Richmond and the subject should now be closed.
