KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Clint Bowyer would usually be swamped by family and friends during the first of two trips to his home track this season. Instead, the Cup Series star will be running in front of mostly empty seats again at Kansas Speedway.
The series has had limited fans for select races since returning fro the coronavirus pandemic, but hot spots in Kansas and neighboring Missouri forced officials to pull the plug on fans earlier this month.
That doesn’t take the pressure off Bowyer, though. He’s still looking to secure a playoff spot for this season and a ride for next.
