Clint Bowyer checked out at care center after playoff elimination at Charlotte Roval
CONCORD, NC - Clint Bowyer was scored and discharged from the Infield Care Center on Sunday after being eliminated from the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs in 10th place at Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.
After getting off his # 14 Ford, Bowyer slumped against the car on the sidewalk. He has been released from his media obligations by NASCAR for visiting the care center.
"I'm fine," Bowyer said of a Stewart-Haas Racing representative.
“Was definitely out of gas. A few (or) three more rounds and I'd have been down after the crappie floppy. It was my own fault, I shouldn't have turned off the power steering. "
The Bank of America 400 (won by Chase Elliott for the second straight year) was a busy race that followed a busy week for Bowyer, who announced on Thursday that he was retiring from his Cup career to join full-time Fox Sports to work analyst next season.
Bowyer started on Sunday 11th but finished first on lap 13 and stayed in front for much of the opening stages for much of the first two stages while leading nine laps.
After pitting during a caution on lap 71, he restarted in 19th place and was caught in heavy traffic by the infield section of the street course.
Contact with other cars caused damage to his car's nose while apparently affecting his power steering, causing his car to fall out of pace and out of the top 30. However, in the last 10 laps he still won six places, which gave him something to build on in the last four races of his full-time Cup career.
