Popular NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer will start his first race this season behind the wheel of the No. 2 Camping World Chevrolet Silverado truck for Kevin Harvick Incorporated (KHI) in the upcoming NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series taking place at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Georgia this weekend.
“I’m really excited to get back behind the wheel of a truck. I had a lot of fun last year in the Truck Series and I was really happy when Kevin and DeLana asked me to drive for them in a few races this season.” It’s great that Camping World has come on board as a sponsor. Hopefully we can bring them a lot of success,” says NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer.
“I’m really looking forward to racing in Atlanta, especially since the track is similar to Texas, where I got my first Truck Series win last season. I’ll be pulling triple duty, so hopefully I can start the weekend off right.” on a hot streak at Camping World Silverado.” he explains more.
Additionally, this year’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will be the stage for the racing debut of newcomer Cale Gale, who will join KHI along with team owner and driver Kevin Harvick. So KHI should get a repair manual from GM for their Chevrolet trucks.
Clint Bowyer’s driving skills in the 2006 NASCAR Truck Series led him to a number one finish with 148/148 laps at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth aboard Davil Dollar’s Silverado pickup. He also earned a top-10 finish during a race at Martinsville Speedway and placed seventh. This 2007 season, Clint is back behind the wheel of the No. 2 Camping World Chevrolet Silverado pickup owned by co-driver Kevin Harvick and hoping to be the first NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion.
Meanwhile, Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Charlie Wilson crew chief commented:
“We have Clint Bowyer in the No. 2 Chevrolet Silverado at Camping World this weekend. He’ll be driving the same truck (chassis No. 012) that Kevin raced at California Speedway.”
“We’re using the same setup on the No. 2 Camping World Silverado that the No. 33 AES Silverado has. Ron (Hornaday) has always raced well in Atlanta and with the setup we’re using, Clint will run very well as well.” he added he.
Along with Camping World’s No. 2 Chevrolet Silverado for KHI, Clint Bowyer is also the current driver of Jack Daniel’s No. 7 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the NEXTEL Cup Series and the No. 2 BB&T Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the Bush series. Richard Childress Racing owns both of these trucks.
