Bowyer's Crew Captures Tissot Pit Road Award in Phoenix

With 1 to go, No.16, No. 24 Crews in contention for Tissot season championship

Clint Bowyer's No. 33 crew captured the Tissot Pit Road Precision Award in Sunday's (Nov. 15) NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway.

It was the third Tissot win of the season for Bowyer's crew and the second straight win for a Richard Childress Racing (RCR) team. Last week's Tissot winner was the RCR teammate of the No. 33 -- the No. 29 crew for Kevin Harvick.

Bowyer's No. 33 Cheerios/Hamburger Helper Chevrolet spent the least amount of time on pit road -- 170.217 seconds -- during the Checkers O'Reilly Auto Parts 500. The quick stops lifted Bowyer to a seventh-place finish.

Bowyer's over-the-wall crew, which earned $5,000 for the win, consists of: Jason Pulver (front-tire changer), Austin Craven (front-tire carrier), Dustin Niecaise (rear-tire changer), Matt Kreuter (rear-tire carrier), Nick Terry (jackman), Bryan Smith (gasman), Chad Haney (catch can) and Scott Brewer (eighth man). The team's crew chief is Shane Wilson. With one Sprint Cup race remaining -- Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway -- the crews for Greg Biffle and Jeff Gordon are the only teams in contention to capture the Tissot Pit Road Precision Award season championship.

Biffle's crew leads the competition with six wins while Gordon's team is second with five wins. If there's a tie, the team which finishes the highest in the Sprint Cup driver point standings will be awarded the Tissot season title. The season-champion crew will receive $100,000 plus Tissot watches for the crew and driver.

Tissot has been the official watch and timekeeper of NASCAR since 2006. The company is also the official timekeeper for a number of other sports, including the MotoGP World Championship, the Ice Hockey World Championship and the Cycling World Championship.
