Bye Bye, Bowyer
Clint Bowyer finishes the worst season of his 11-year career in his lone season at HScott Motorsports.
Bowyer drove a stopgap season at HSM before he takes Stewart’s ride in the 14 in 2017. Bowyer had vowed to reshape to team and leave it as winning organization. Bowyer failed to post a top-finish for the first time and trudges into the finale 27th in the standings.
Homestead also could mark the final race for HSM, which fielded cars for Bowyer and Michael Annett this season. Annett failed to record a top 10, is 36th in the standings and has been shifted to the second-tier Xfinity Series for 2017.
Without a driver, team owner Harry Scott could shutter HSM and sell its charter.
“Harry is considering a number of options for 2017. He has not made a final decision yet but will do so in the coming weeks,” the team said Saturday.
