NASCAR Driver Clint Bowyer Gets A Win And Gives Back, All In The Same Weekend

Hometown favorite NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer experienced the biggest weekend of the year this past weekend.


The Emporia, Kan., native not only captured his first Sprint Cup win of the season, winning the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at the Infineon Raceway road course in Sonoma, but he also earned $100,000 by auctioning off his 2011 Toyota Tundra pickup truck at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Orange County over the weekend.


Bowyer promptly contributed the money from the sale of his Toyota Tundra to the Emporia Community Foundation, which is one of the prime charities he regularly supports.
