Aside from Jimmie Johnson, Clint Bowyer is another driver who is set to walk away from NASCAR. While Johnson’s departure came with much fanfare, Bowyer’s exit was a little more under the radar. However, he did go out with a bit of a bang, in the form of a special interview with his two children.
The older child, Cash Bowyer, had a good time asking his father a few hard-hitting questions.
To his credit, Clint took it in stride and even took the opportunity to poke fun at his own kids. An example was when Cash asked him about his biggest mess, and Bowyer cheekily replied that he was looking at two of them.
Then came a question about picking between American football and baseball, and he picked football. There was also a bit of a confession, as he admitted that he didn’t know how to properly tie a tie.
Later on, Cash asked him whether he and Jeff Gordon would ‘wreck each other’ in the commentary booth. This prompted a massive guffaw from the veteran NASCAR driver. This is a small reference to the fact that the two of them would often collide. On a brighter note, Bowyer admitted that there would be a lot of laughs between them.
Speaking about what he will miss about racing, Clint Bowyer replied, “Taking you to the race track”.
Then, the 41-year-old noticed his son’s attire and asked him where he got the Fox Sports uniform. This time, it was Cash’s turn to be cheeky, and he declared that he knew some people.
Sadly, he did not have a particularly good day in the office for his final race. He reached the checkered flag all the way down in 14th place. Now, the Stewart-Haas driver may be walking away, but he will still be in the NASCAR paddock, albeit as a commentator. Looking back, he should be proud of his career in the sport and all that he has achieved.
