Clint Bowyer Race Summary: No. 15 5-hour ENERGY Toyota driver Clint Bowyer finished 14th in Sunday’s AAA 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway. Bowyer started 16th and quickly showed the pace that led to top-10 finishes at the last nine races on the Monster Mile. Bowyer raced to seventh before an unscheduled pit stop on lap 177 dropped him to 24th and two laps behind the leader. Bowyer made up both laps, climbing to 15th by lap 315. He gained a spot in the final laps to finish 14th. Bowyer finished 16th in the first round of NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup and will not move on to the second round. The No.15 team returns to action Saturday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

  • Started 16th and finished 14th
  • Climbed as high as seventh in early going
  • Unscheduled stop on lap 177 dropped him two laps behind leaders
  • Bowyer finished 16th in the first round of the Chase and will not advance to the next round

 

BOWYER: “Our 5-hour ENERGY Toyota was good today. I'd say a top-five car. We just had some bad luck with that loose wheel early on. We got two laps down but were able to make those up. No one had anything for that 4 car though.  Real proud of everyone at MWR for all their hard work to get us in the Chase. Just sorry we aren't able to go to the next round.”

 

David Ragan Race Summary: No. 55 Aaron’s Dream Machine Toyota driver David Ragan finished 22nd in Sunday’s AAA 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Dover International Speedway. The Michael Waltrip Racing driver started 28th and raced up to 20th in the early going, but fell two laps behind the leaders at the halfway mark. The No. 55 made numerous adjustments throughout the day and took some strategy gambles, but could not return to the lead lap. Ragan and the No. 55 Aaron’s team return to action Saturday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

                                                                                                                            

  • Started 28th and finished 22nd
  • Struggled with handling from the beginning of the race
  • NASCAR set starting field according to the rulebook after rain cancelled Friday qualifying

 

RAGAN: “That was a tough day for the Aaron’s Dream Machine. We needed more speed to race with those guys in front of us. At times, we were pretty good and at times, we struggled. We got down a lap then tried a lot of strategy, but we just couldn’t get the cautions to fall when we needed them.”
