Clint Bowyer is gearing up for the 2017 Nascar season with Stewart-Haas Racing. He’ll be taking over Tony Stewart’s No. 14 car during Stewart-Haas Racing’s first year with Ford Performance.

Bowyer is looking forward to the new season, telling FS1’s “Nascar Race Hub”, “There’s a lot of exciting things here and an unbelievable opportunity… to have that be with Ford, Mobil 1 and everyone involved, it’s just a dream come true.”

Bowyer is moving from Chevrolet to Ford and is excited to be driving with talented people around him. He says, “A lot of thought really goes into the new season with a new life, a new chance, a new crack at-bat, a new manufacturer, new sponsors, new teammates and a new organization. But, what an unbelievable opportunity it is to go out and do what you love to do, not only to do that but do it in first-class equipment built by racers that only share one thing in common— the will to go out and win races.”

Bowyer says that what he loves about Stewart-Haas Racing is that everyone is working towards building race cars that go fast and win races. They aren’t focused on sales, but rather they are focused on winning.

Be sure to cheer on Bowyer this season and don’t forget to check out our inventory:
