Clint Bowyer surprises with Las Vegas pole, qualifying results

To say Clint Bowyer was an after thought for winning the pole for Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway would be an understatement.

It has been 12 years and 431 races since Bowyer last won a pole. The pole is Bowyers second career pole as he led a sweep of the top four spots for Stewart Haas Racing drivers.
