CORNELIUS, N.C. — Thursday’s grand opening of the Clint Bowyer Autoplex in his hometown of Emporia, Kan. will be a special day for the No. 15 5-hour ENERGY Toyota driver in many ways.
Bowyer walks into the Autoplex as the owner of the dealership where he worked as a paint-less dent repair specialist and detailer. He’ll be joined by three-time Sprint Cup champion Darrell Waltrip, Michael Waltrip Racing teammate Mark Martin, two-time Daytona 500 champion Michael Waltrip plus several hundred race fans for the celebration that begins at 11:30 a.m.
Bowyer partnered with Davis-Moore Auto Group to purchase the dealership, formerly called Emporia Motors. The Wichita Kan. company will run the day-to-day operations, while Bowyer focuses on his racing duties at Michael Waltrip Racing. Those duties continue this weekend at Kansas Speedway about 100 miles from Emporia. .
