Clint Bowyer will remain with Stewart-Haas Racing for the 2020 season, the team announced on Thursday. This will be Bowyer’s fourth season with the team.
He will remain the driver of the No. 14 Ford Mustang. When the 40-year-old competes in 2020, it will be his 15th NASCAR Cup Series season.
“Clint Bowyer is a racer to his core, who brings passion and energy to our race team,” Team co-owner Tony Stewart, who owns the team with Haas Automation founder Gene Haas, said in a statement. “He’s exactly who I wanted to drive my No. 14 car and we’re very happy to have him continue with Stewart-Haas Racing.”
The Emporia, Kansas native has seven Top 5 finishes this season. This past Monday, Bowyer competed in his 500th Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Alabama.
He is averaging a 10th place start, but started the South Point 400 on Sept. 15 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada on the pole. However, his average finish is 15.4.
“I’m proud to be back with Stewart-Haas Racing next year and very happy to announce it the week leading into my home race,” Bowyer said. “This is a team filled with racers, who love to compete, and as a race car driver, it’s exactly where you want to be. It’s great equipment, I have great teammates, and we’re all backed by great people, which starts at the top with Tony and Gene. They know how to build some fast Ford Mustangs and I’m the lucky guy, who gets to drive ‘em.”
