KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- NASCAR superstar Clint Bowyer will return to his former stomping grounds this Tuesday, July 16, when the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and United States Modified Touring Series team up for the “Clash of the Titans” event at the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.
Bowyer, who owns the #15 Georgia Boot dirt late model driven by Steve Francis and the #5 Peak Motor Oil dirt late model driven by Jared Landers, will be behind the wheel of a third Georgia Boot-sponsored team car.
“Georgia Boot is thrilled for Clint to get back into the Georgia Boot Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series #15 dirt late model. It's even more exciting that he's able to do it at his home dirt track of Lakeside Speedway,” said Seann Anderson, Sponsorship Manager of Georgia Boot. “We'll have Georgia Boot giveaway items at the track, give fans the chance to win a free pair of Georgia Boots and have information on how to enter our “Walk in our Boots” sweepstakes that features Clint and Steve Francis.”
Originally from Emporia, Kan., Bowyer grew up racing in the Kansa City area and has made many laps around the legendary at Lakeside Speedway where he won more than 30 feature races and two track championships from 2000-2003.
Bowyer has fielded two full-time dirt late model teams on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the past two years and will be looking to mix it up with some of the nation's top drivers on the series at Lakeside Speedway.
When his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule has allowed, he has driven dirt late models and modifieds in the past, including several USMTS events.
Georgia Boot will have a display booth at both Lakeside Speedway on Tuesday and Hamilton County Speedway on Wednesday, July 17. Fans can visit the Georgia Boot display at both race tracks and see all the latest shoes and apparel. The company has put together a unique promotion this year with the “Walk in our Boots” sweepstakes.
