2013 Bristol: Clint Bowyer NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview

Bowyer’s No. 15 Toyota Camry will promote NAPA’s $20.99 oil change special, while Martin Truex Jr.’s No. 56 Toyota Camry will adorn the traditional NAPA AUTO PARTS scheme. NAPA and the No. 15 car have a rich history, scoring two Daytona 500 wins together with Michael Waltrip behind the wheel. This will mark the first time since 2005 the NAPA AUTO PARTS shield will be on the hood of the No. 15 race car.

QUOTES

ON RACING THE NAPA COLORS: “To race a No. 15 NAPA car for Michael Waltrip Racing carries a lot of meaning for everyone involved. (Team founder) Michael Waltrip raced those colors with that number to some very significant wins - including two Daytona 500s. I think it will be great to see NAPA back on the No. 15 this weekend. I know it will mean a lot to Michael, the folks at NAPA and also to me. I’d love to put that car back in victory lane for Michael and the folks at NAPA - plus, it’s Bristol baby! I’d just love to get a win there because I think it’s such an amazing racetrack. We ran well at Daytona and Phoenix but struggled last weekend at Vegas. We’ll be much better this weekend. Bristol is just good old-fashioned racing and I think the fans will see a heck of show Sunday. It’s good to be back short track racing again.”
