NASCAR Barometer: Bowyer Holds on to Win Rain-Shortened Race

This article is part of our NASCAR Barometer series.

Clint Bowyer used a two-tire stop to gain track position, and then held on through a white-knuckle restart to win a rain-shortened race at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday. The afternoon's race was originally delayed more than two hours by rain, but the competitors were able to complete the first two stages to make the running official. It was Bowyer who made the right decision in the pits to come out to battle with teammate Kevin Harvick on the final restart.

It was a dominant day from the entire Stewart-Haas Racing team, with three drivers sweeping the top finishing positions.
