Clint Bowyer doesn’t need a reason to throw a party, and he already had one planned even before he won at Sonoma.
Bowyer celebrated the opening of the Bowyer Community Building in his hometown of Emporia, Kan., on Tuesday night with a concert by country star Blake Shelton. The building is located at the Lyon County fairgrounds and was built with funds raised through Bowyer’s ”79 Fund” charity.
”It was always going to be a big week, starting with all the charity foundation things we had planned, then we go and win the race,” Bowyer said in a telephone interview on Wednesday. ”It’s been the biggest week we’ve ever had. It just set us up in being able to celebrate, and that we did, let me tell you.”
