Talks Racing, Kansas Speedway and Baseball


How does a local NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver follow up a meeting with President Obama? By promoting Kansas Speedway’s Price Chopper 400 presented by Kraft Foods, of course.

On Aug. 25, Clint Bowyer met with members of the local media answering questions about whether or not he’ll make the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and what winning at Kansas Speedway would mean to him.

“I love racing at Kansas Speedway; I don’t know if it’s the enthusiasm I have for this place, but I run pretty well here,” said Bowyer. “Kansas Speedway has aged really well and the outside groove is there, I’m not just saying that because it’s my home track either.

“Winning here would still be big even if I’m not in the Chase. This place means a lot to me and the fans here are great.”

Bowyer also visited Kaufman Stadium, where he spent time talking with Kansas City Royals players, taking some batting practice, throwing out the first pitch and doing more interviews.

During his interview on Fox Sports Kansas City, he was asked if there are any similarities between NASCAR racing and baseball.

“We both turn left,” said Bowyer, explaining to Royals broadcasters that when baseball players round the bases they have to turn left.

When Bowyer was informed by the local media that there are two football games in Kansas City the same weekend, he had a piece of advice for fans.

“Come out to Kansas Speedway and watch the races. You can listen to the football games on the radio.”

Spoken like a driver who’s looking for a home field advantage.
