Who would have ever thought that all of those years of snow-packed parking lots back in the Midwest would have ever paid off at a burnout contest at Charlotte in a competition at the All-Star race.

I was watching Kasey (Kahne) and we were all talking about how to get the car in second gear, because that is where you get the most smoke. I got the car in a drift and got it in second gear a little quicker than the other guys, and I think that was what gave us the most smoke.”
Bowyer is donating the $10,000 first place check to his charity _ the Employee Community Foundation in his hometown of Emporia, Kan.
