No. 33 Team Salvages 27th-Place Finish at Phoenix

Clint Bowyer and the No. 33 Cheerios/Hamburger Helper Chevrolet team salvaged a 27th-place finish in the Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway after being involved in an early accident on lap 65. Rolling off the starting grid in the 16th position, Bowyer battled a loose-handling race car until early cautions gave the Shane Wilson-led pit crew opportunities to make adjustments on the No. 33 Chevrolet. On lap 40, Bowyer came down pit road again and the "Helping Hands" pit crew changed only two tires, improving their running position to third. Bowyer remained in the top five for the next 10 laps until the caution flag flew on lap 49, allowing the Emporia, Kan., native to come down pit road and take four tires, fuel and more adjustments to tighten up the race car. After that, an incident occurred in front of Bowyer involving Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch causing minor damage and setting the No. 33 Chevy back to 16th in the running order. On the ensuing restart, Bowyer was one of 13 cars caught up in PIR's version of "the big one," suffering major damage and sending the Cheerios/Hamburger Chevrolet back to the NSCS garage for repairs. After returning to the track 48 laps down to the leader and in the 32nd position, the team improved six positions on the track, gaining valuable points and bringing home a respectable 27th-place finish.

CLINT BOWYER QUOTE:

"It is early in the year and everybody is trying to get what they can. Certainly if people are wrecking, then it is too aggressive. There is no question about that. I'm real proud of how we ran today. I thought we had a car that could win this race and for the second week in a row we are sitting here disappointed. These guys worked really hard to get our car back in the race and we gained valuable points in the big picture."
