By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

NASCAR Cup Series driver Clint Bowyer is just weeks away from retiring as a full-time driver. He made the announcement on Thursday that he is leaving Stewart-Haas Racing.

Bowyer has announced that he is joining NASCAR on Fox. He will join Mike Joy, who serves as the play-by-play broadcaster.

Jeff Gordon and Bowyer will serve as the color commentator. During NASCAR’s hiatus, Bowyer served as a color commentator with Joy and Gordon during their iRacing events.

“For me, it began in the sixth grade,” Bowyer said on Twitter. “There was a converted school bus hooked to a trailer with an old Chevelle Street Stock that was always parted right next door to my school. One day at recess, I snuck over and sat in that race car. Man, it was cool! From that time forward, all I wanted to do was sit behind the wheel of a race car. During my career, I’ve had the opportunity and honor of representing some of the biggest and best companies in the world. To think I’ve represented companies like AC-Delco, Jack Daniel’s, General Mills, DirecTV, BB&T, Hershey Foods, AAA, Bass Pro Shops, Camping World, Sylvania, 5-hour Energy, PEAK, Rush Truck Centers, Mobil 1, Haas Automation, DEKALB, and many more is something I’m very proud of. To this day, I still have great relationships with all of them.

“I’ve sat in race cars prepared by some of the vest best men and women the sport has to offer, for world class organizations. Sharing victory lane with the people representing Richard Childress Racing, Kevin Harvick Inc., Michael Waltrip Racing, and Stewart-Haas Racing is what it’s all about. Have I mentioned opportunity? As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized these opportunities are few and far between, and when they come around you must recognize them. Just like the days before I got the call from RC standing in that Ford body shop, I’ve been racing throughout this year wondering ‘what’s next?’ Now to get to the point of what I want to tell you, I have a new opportunity [to] do what’s next in my life. In 2021, my suit will no longer be fireproof. I will be joining the FOX booth on Sundays.”

Bowyer was expected to be a free agent at the end of the season. He replaced Darrell Waltrip in the booth, who retired at the end of the 2019 season.

In his career, Bowyer has competed in 536 NASCAR Cup Series races from 2005 through 2020. He has several races left before he steps away.

He has 10 career wins at the highest level.

His last win came at the 2018 FireKeepers Casino 400 on June 10, 2018 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan. He won the race driving for Stewart-Haas Racing.
