FEATURES Clint Bowyer Changing Gears, Helps Repair Texas Roads

By Toby Christie (Originally appeared on RubbingsRacing.com)

Clint Bowyer is best known for his job on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series circuit. However on Thursday Clint Bowyer decided to change things up a bit.

Bowyer joined Dallas mayor Tom Leppert and city street repair crews to help fill potholes on a stretch of highway, effectively trading in his racing helmet for a hard hat. The Hartford Pothole Patrol is a program designed to help create a smoother commute for Dallas-area residents.

“I had a great time today in Dallas with the Hartford and its Pothole Patrol program,” Said Bowyer, I really enjoyed seeing The Hartford giving back to the community in this way. They’ve been a great partner of RCR’s and we look for continued success with them this weekend.”

Bowyer will be carrying the colors of The Hartford on his No. 33 Chevrolet in three races this season, and as always they will be an associate sponsor on his Cheerios / Hamburger Helper car this weekend. The Hartford donated the funds for materials, labor and time for all of Dallas’ repair crews for the day. The Hartford will grace Bowyer’s car two more times this season.

Now if we could have just had Clint and The Hartford team up to fill potholes at the Daytona 500 in February… I know I know, I just had to bring it up again.
