When the dirt races at Daytona were rained out earlier this week, NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer “took the kiddos to Disney World.” He posted a pic of a cute paint-faced kid with the caption, “I’m pooped!!!!” Clint likes to have a good time. As he tweeted that day, “Dirt races rained out…Bar owners better be double stocked up tonight. Gonna get rowdy!!!” He likes exclamation marks, too. They go well with the party he always seems to be at.
Bowyer is definitely the right man for this job: on the eve of “The Great American Race,” Bowyer will host the nationally televised Daytona 500 Bash at the Beach on FOX (February 21, 9pm). Bowyer will introduce musical guests Little Big Town and Phillip Phillips. In most professional sports, athletes make a point of not partying the night before the biggest game of the year. Especially if they’re coming off a second straight winless season. Then again, Bowyer wasn’t exactly going to bed early during his wins either!
