Newman replaces Truex in NASCAR Chase
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — His reputation has been battered, his team blasted by NASCAR for manipulating the outcome of a pivotal race. Now Clint Bowyer will do his best to pick up the pieces and try to salvage his season.
“No rearview mirrors in life, just windshield ahead. It’s been a great year and is going to be a great chase. Time to move on!!!” Bowyer posted on Twitter late Monday night.
It was his first public comment since NASCAR launched an investigation into his Saturday night spin at Richmond and ultimately uncovered a series of deliberate actions by Michael Waltrip Racing to alter the race results and the field for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. The sordid saga concluded Monday with a hefty penalty that saw Ryan Newman replace Martin Truex Jr. in the Chase as MWR was fined $300,000, and general manager Ty Norris received an indefinite suspension.
