Clint Bowyer: “Old Kenseth is coming back! Everybody is excited about Matt Kenseth, but let me tell you the competitors aren’t. Matt Kenseth is a threat to win any time he is on the track.”
If a genie appeared before Clint Bowyer in the middle of the night and granted him a single racing wish, it wouldn’t take long for the Emporia, Kansas native to make a request.
Heck, anyone even vaguely familiar with Bowyer over the years can already guess his wish.
“Kansas is obviously at the top of the list, right up there with a Daytona 500, of places I’d really like to get a victory at some point in my career,” said Bowyer, who’ll get a chance to make that wish come true Saturday night when he drives the No. 14 Haas Automation VF-1 Ford Fusion for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City. “I won’t complain no matter where we win our next race, but winning at Kansas would be extra special for a lot of people in the Bowyer family.”
Bowyer has already made a trip to victory lane in 2018 by taking the checkered flag at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway in March. But he obviously feels it’s important to run well in front of family and friends.
