It was his first win driving for SHR, the team he joined as Tony Stewart's replacement last year.The move to SHR was supposed to turn Bowyer's fortunes around, but his struggles continued through his first year in the No. 14 Ford. But he finally figured it out on the short track in Virginia and won for the first time since his victory at Charlotte in October 2012.

Clint Bowyer came to Stewart - Haas Racing (SHR) in 2017 and took over one of the most coveted rides in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series – the No. 14 Ford. Bowyer replaced three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Tony Stewart, who retired as a NASCAR driver at the end of 2016 to

Stewart-Haas Racing is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and will make its 1,000th start in Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series competition this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.

“That makes me feel really, really old,” SHR competition director Greg Zipadelli said. “Seriously, a thousand starts is a sign of longevity and that’s an accomplishment. It helps in keeping good people and recruiting good people.”

Since its inception, 14 different drivers have made at least one Cup start with SHR but Clint Bowyer’s victory at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway last month made him just one of five who have won with the organization.

  Analysis: Clint Bowyer says You will never have to wonder how Clint Bowyer’s NASCAR season or career is going because he lays it all out for the world to see. All of the frustration, disappointment, pressure and perhaps even anger that has engulfed his last several seasons in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series was on display Monday at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.For one day at least – and certainly the after-party lasted far longer – it was all worth it.

I wasn’t exactly pumped about the handling, but we fought hard. Buga (crew chief Mike Bugarewicz) and all the guys worked

Kevin Harvick owns 17 wins at SHR, Tony Stewart 16, five for Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman collected four. Both Harvick and Stewart have won championships driving for SHR.

“That’s pretty good company,” said Bowyer. “Gene Haas and Tony Stewart and all their partners and employees have shown a lot of faith in me. It was so great to be able to celebrate with them in Victory Lane.”

Bowyer’s win couldn’t have come at a better time for himself – ending a 190-race winless streak – but also for SHR, which is in the best position the organization has ever been.

In 2018, SHR Fords have led 723 of a possible 1,811 laps and won four of the first six races. All four current SHR drivers – Harvick, Bowyer, Busch and Aric Almirola – are in the top-11 in the series standings.

  NASCAR Roundtable: Which driver will snap their winless streak next? On this week's edition of the NASCAR Roundtable, we talk winless streaks, Kyle Busch's growing frustration and the surprises so far in the 2018 season. Clint Bowyer ended a 190-race winless streak when he won Monday at Martinsville Speedway.

Race marked first time Bowyer earned race points for top-10 finishes in consecutive stages. “It was just a good weekend. I appreciate everybody’s hard work at Stewart - Haas Racing . Having these teammates and having this group behind you, the organization and the teamwork, it’s just amazing to

Bowyer to the Stewart - Haas Racing (SHR) team he and Gene Haas formed in 2009 and has since won 37 races , a Daytona 500 and two championships. Stewart’s sharp wit and Bowyer ’s frenetic personality should make for some lively moments over the next several years at SHR and in the garage.

“Make no mistake, all four Stewart-Haas cars have been good all year long,” Bowyer said. “Kevin led that charge when he won three races in a row, but we’ve been ‘Steady Eddie’ with our No. 14 car and the things that I’ve always been accustomed to.

“Consistency and things like that I’m starting to see, knowing our strengths, knowing our weaknesses from last year, focusing on those weaknesses and then, all of a sudden, it starts to click in and putting things together, and you have those conversations.

“You feel the confidence.”

Texas Motor Speedway offers another solid chance for SHR to extend its strong start to the 2018 season.

Harvick won last season’s fall race at Texas and has been stellar on 1.5-mile intermediate tracks so far this year. Busch owns a win at Texas and won the pole for last season’s fall race. Sunday will be Almirola’s first race at the track with SHR.

Bowyer has yet to win at Texas in his Cup career, but with the confidence coming off his first win of the year, anything is possible.

“We’ve been close there a number of times over the years. At Texas, it’s all about having the sheer speed,” he said. “On those 1.5-mile tracks, you have to have a car that unloads fast.

“You can be a little bit tight or a little bit loose but, if that car isn’t making grip, making downforce and having the speed on the race track, then you are going to struggle. Unloading a fast hot rod right off the truck is going to be so important.

“Normally, you can tell in the first few minutes of practice who will be good in the race.”
