Clint Bowyer in elite (winning) company at Stewart-Haas Racing

  Clint Bowyer in elite (winning) company at Stewart-Haas Racing 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.

After a dramatic week at Harbour Town, the PGA Tour rolls back to the Lone Star State for the Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio.

Much like last week, most of the top players are skipping this event, leaving Sergio Garcia as the only top-20 golfer in the world teeing it up.

Roundtable: Can Jimmie Johnson end his winless streak at Texas?

  Roundtable: Can Jimmie Johnson end his winless streak at Texas? After an off-weekend following Clint Bowyer's triumph at Martinsville Speedway, NASCAR returns this weekend for another intermediate track in Texas Motor Speedway. Jimmie Johnson won this race last spring and has also won five of the last ten Cup races held at Texas Motor Speedway. Do you think he can break his winless slump of 29 races this weekend?Jim: Anything is possible, I suppose, but I haven't seen anything from Hendrick Motorsports or the No. 48 team so far to indicate they are on the cusp of a victory at an intermediate track.

Need help with your fantasy-golf lineups for this week’s Valero Texas Open ? That was a draining week that ended in a playoff loss at the RBC Heritage. The last two times Kim posted a top 3 at a PGA Tour event, he missed the cut at his next tournament.

That lack of star power means there's a lot of value on the betting board, and here are the players to target for a potential victory:

Favorite to watch (odds 30-1 or shorter)

Adam Scott

It's been a while since Adam Scott played in this event, but the 37-year-old showed he's comfortable on the layout with a 23rd-place finish in 2011. While his putter continues to be an issue, the Australian is once again in peak form with his ball-striking. Scott ranks 12th in strokes gained: approach and 26th in strokes gained: off-the-tee, two very important statistics to focus on this week. Look for him to punish the course with his long game and make enough putts to walk away as champion.

Odds to win: 30-1

Top-5 odds: 7-1

Second tier (odds longer than 30-1)

Brendan Steele

Steele's game certainly thrives at TPC San Antonio, as he won the event in 2011 and has contended for the title on more than half of his visits to the track. This season, the 35-year-old ranks fifth on tour in strokes gained: off-the-tee and 34th in strokes gained: approach, which is evidence that he's on his ball-striking game. Given Steele's history of success at the event and his current form, he's a strong play on this week's board.

Odds to win: 40-1

Top-5 odds: 7-1

Long shot (odds 50-1 or longer)

J.B. Holmes

Holmes is as long as anybody on tour, which helps offset an extremely streaky putter. The 35-year-old finished 13th in his last visit to this event in 2016, and is more than comfortable playing in the wind that usually materializes in South Central Texas. Even just a decent week with the putter should see Holmes in contention, and at 50-1, he's worth a wager.

Clint Bowyer wanted Martinsville-winning car for Bristol

  Clint Bowyer wanted Martinsville-winning car for Bristol Clint Bowyer asked his Stewart-Haas Racing team if he could drive his Martinsville race-winning car in this weekend's NASCAR Cup series race at Bristol. Stream Live NBA Games. Anytime. Anywhere. Start Free Trial Sponsored by fuboTV Bowyer ended his streak of 190 races without a win with victory at Martinsville last month and said it answered questions over whether he would ever win again in the Cup series. It was the 38-year-old’s first win with SHR in his second year with the team and he followed up with ninth in Texas.

Odds to win: 50-1

Top-5 odds: 10-1

Super long shot (odds 80-1 or longer)

Aaron Wise

Wise is off to a solid start in his first full season on the PGA Tour, making nine out of 14 cuts and posting a trio of top-20 finishes. The former Oregon standout is solid off the tee and should leave himself ample opportunities to attack pins at TPC San Antonio. One stat that will make Wise a popular pick this week is that he's 23rd on tour in birdie-or-better percentage.

Odds to win: 80-1

Top-5 odds: 25-1

Hit this bet, buy a car (odds 100-1 or longer)

Brandon Harkins

Harkins' form has dipped after a hot start to the 2017-18 season, but the 31-year-old's game sets up well for the track at TPC San Antonio. He ranks in the top 65 players on tour in both strokes gained: off-the-tee and strokes gained: approach, which are numbers that should lead to strong play this week. At 100-1 odds, he's definitely worth a couple bucks as a massive underdog.
