Bowyer's team wins Tissot Pit Road award The No. 33 Richard Childress Racing team of driver Clint Bowyer won the Tissot Pit Road Precision Award for Sunday's Kobalt Tools 500 Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
RCR’s No. 33 team is the fourth in four races this season to win the award, which honors the eligible team spending the least amount of time on pit road during a race. Bowyer’s group spent 364.4 seconds on pit road en route to a sixth-place finish.
“The BB&T crew did a phenomenal job on pit road at Atlanta," Bowyer said. "They had consistently fast stops all day and really deserved to win the Tissot award this week. I’m glad that they’ll get their time to shine from our finish as well. These guys work hard, and I’m glad to see them rewarded for their efforts.”
Bowyer’s team received $5,000 for winning the award. The team with the most awards at the end of the season earns $100,000 and Tissot watches for the driver and pit-crew members.
