This week the NCAA kicks off March Madness and the college basketball world will soon crown its champion. NASCAR holds its own version of March Madness later this year when the Challenger (Sweet 16), Contender (Elite 8), and Eliminator (Final Four) rounds decide the 2014 Sprint Cup champion in a winner-take-all race at Homestead.
Loyal University of Kansas Jayhawk fan Clint Bowyer plans to root on his favorite team, who makes their 25th consecutive appearance in the tournament, in the next few weeks. He also hopes to secure his Michael Waltrip Racing team a place in NASCAR’s championship tournament.
His next opportunity is this weekend at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. The Kansas native also sports a new look on his No. 15 Toyota as the colors of PEAK® Antifreeze and Motor Oil adorn the car.
Bowyer’s been in peak form at the 2-mile oval. More than half of his13 starts have ended with top-10 runs. After a strong showing at the 1.5-mile track in Las Vegas two weeks ago, Bowyer and the rest of the No. 15 PEAK crew hope that some March Madness ensues Sunday in Victory Lane at Fontana.
