Clint Bowyer won Saturday nights race at Richmond International Speedway and is in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase, the first race of “The Chase” is this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway. Ty Norris was spotting for Bowyer, but is also the GM of MWR. It seems that the signing of Griffin is to relieve Norris of his spotting duties.
