“The way my career has kind of went, I feel like I’m not that guy that’s going to get looked at as this amazing racecar driver and I’m not sometimes going to get credit that I feel like I might deserve,” Bowman explained. “But it is kind of what it is.”
“I talked to Kyle Monday night, he was just mad to have lost the race,” Bowman recalled. “He wasn’t mad at me, I didn’t do anything to him. Kyle and I have always raced each other with respect. He was just mad that he lost the race and I was the one on the other end of the rant. Obviously, Kyle is passionate, we’ve seen that for a really long time. I was in the fire on that one, but he basically said he was just mad about losing the race and didn’t mean to be so disrespectful to me.”
“Being able to turn those things into a positive, obviously, the Hack shirts were able to buy all of my team guys Martinsville clocks and then donate the rest to best friends. And with the shirt this time, we’re donating 18% to a local shelter. Cool to be able to raise some money for homeless pets,” Bowman stated. “It’s been fun to see all of the fan interaction with the t-shirts, because we are definitely selling a lot of them.”
