Double Victory Weekend for No. 33 Team
Clint Bowyer’s pit crew won the Tissot Pit Road Precision Award in Sunday’s (Sept. 19) Sylvania 300 Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
The No. 33 team out of the Richard Childress Racing stable also won the race with Bowyer claiming victory in the first of the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Bowyer’s Cheerios/Hamburger Helper Chevrolet spent the least amount of time at the Loudon, N.H. track –139.513 seconds.
Bowyer’s crew consists of: Jason Pulver (front-tire changer), Austin Craven (front-tire carrier), Dustin Necaise (rear-tire changer), Matt Kreuter (rear-tire carrier), Nick Terry (jackman), Bryan Smith (gasman) and Chad Haney (catch can). Shane Wilson is the crew chief and Matt Clark is the pit crew coach.
The weekly-winning crew receives $5,000 from Tissot plus a Tissot V8 Quartz Chronograph watch. The team with the most Tissot Pit Road Precision Award wins at the completion of the 36-race schedule will receive a $105,000 bonus plus Tissot watches for the over-the-wall crew members and driver.
With nine Sprint Cup races remaining in the 2010 season, Jeff Gordon’s No. 24 crew leads the Tissot standings with four wins. The crews for Matt Kenseth (No. 17) and Jamie McMurray (No. 1) are tied for second with three wins.
