Cash Bowyer Takes Chad Bush Clash

CATAWBA, N.C. – Cash Bowyer, son of former NASCAR Cup Series driver and NASCAR on FOX broadcaster, Clint Bowyer, dominated the beginner box stock portion of the Chad Bush Clash presented by Martin Truex Jr. Motorsports Sunday at Mountain Creek Speedway.

Brexton Busch finished second while John Marshall Pursley cleaned up the podium.

The two-day charity event benefiting one of the track’s beloved racers raised over $12,000, with all the proceeds going to Cabarrus Healthcare Foundation in Bush’s name.

Bush, a weekly competitor since the track’s inception and a huge supporter of the speedway, was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 after 22 years of remission.

Bush, who competes in the mini modified division at Mountain Creek Speedway, is also a car builder and fabricator who locked up the track championship while undergoing cancer treatments this year.

Bowyer, in the No. 14 Rush Truck Centers entry, started on the pole by winning his heat.

His only challenge for the lead came from Stetson Swink on a late-race restart. 

Swink passed Bowyer in turn three, only to have Bowyer go back to the top spot as the two battled in turn one.

Jackson Darnell and Stetson Swink rounded out the top five.

In the Cadet division, it was Cameron Hyler leading wire to wire in the 15-lap main event. Easton Thomas and T.J. Pursley finished on the podium. Easton Jarrard and Ellie Messer completed the top five. 

Tony Rhinehart picked up his first win in the Yamaha 450 stock feature and Zoey Smith won the box stock A main. 

Austin Thompson was credited with the open division feature win. 

Sunday’s events finished racing for the year at Mountain Creek Speedway.
