However, Matt DiBenedetto came out with a warning to Bowyer’s future commentary teammates. He declared that they would have a hard time keeping him under control.

When Bowyer spoke about the gig, he said, “Without a doubt. NASCAR fans are as in tune with race stats, storylines and the ebbs and flows of racing each week as any fanbase in America.
