Clint Bowyer picked up this 2nd win of the year and 10th of his career, winning the rain shortened NASCAR Monster Energy Cup race at Michigan Speedway Sunday.

Clint Bowyer took the lead under caution at the end of Stage 2 of Sunday’s FireKeepers Casino 400 when crew chief Mike Bugarewicz opted for two tires on the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford. Bowyer had to do the rest, holding off teammate Kevin Harvick after a restart on Lap 126, barely preventing Harvick, who had 4 fresh tires from clearing him off Turn 2. Bowyer got the good fortune he needed when Ricky Stenhouse Jr. spun in Turn 2 on Lap 129, causing the eighth caution of the afternoon. Rain started almost immediately and soaked the track, forcing NASCAR to call the race after 133 of a scheduled 200 laps at the 2-mile track. That made Bowyer the winner of a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race for the first time at Michigan and the second time this year. Kevin Harvick finished 2nd and Kurt Busch 3rd giving Stewart-Haas its first ever 1-2-3 finish.
