It was a passing-of-the-torch moment for the Bowyer family on Saturday night.
Cash Bowyer, son of former NASCAR Cup Series driver Clint Bowyer, earned his first victory in a go-kart race, according to his father’s Instagram post. The 7-year-old driver met his dad, mom Lorra and 3-year-old sister Presley in Victory Lane.
Clint competed in his final full-time Cup Series race in the season finale on Nov. 8 at Phoenix Raceway. He earned 10 victories at NASCAR’s top level and the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship in 2008. Bowyer will join Mike Joy and Jeff Gordon in the FOX NASCAR television booth to call Cup Series races beginning in 2021.
Probably the most proud I’ve ever been. Different level to watch your kid listen, watch, learn, and then be determined to go after what he wants. Winner!!! 💪 https://t.co/LtvAp8tggu
