Clint Bowyer won his second Busch Series race of the season, rallying from deep in the field to win the Sam’s Town 250 at Memphis Motorsports Park on Saturday at Millington, Tenn. Boyer worked his way to the front after starting 35th in the 43-car field and dominated the second half of the race. With the win, he closed within 100 points of defending series champion Martin Truex Jr. with three events remaining. Truex, who started from the pole, dominated early and wound up third behind J.J. Yeley, leads with 4,511 points, while Bowyer improved to 4,411. Former series champion David Green finished fourth. Servia wins pole: Oriol Servia won the pole for the Lexmark Indy 300 at Surfers Paradise, Australia, in a car he considered close to perfect. But his success forced Newman/Haas teammate Sebastien Bourdais to wait another day to take the Champ Car series title for the second year in a row. Servia took the lead with about 10 minutes left in the qualifying session, easily handling the street course. Bourdais thought he had taken the pole – and the only point needed to win the title – when his final lap was faster than that of Servia. But Bourdais crossed the line 1.6 seconds after the checkered flag waved to end the session. Bourdais will win the title simply by taking the green flag today. Bourdais pulls off double: Sebastien Bourdais won the Champ Car series title and then went out and won the Lexmark Indy 300 on Sunday at Surfers Paradise, Australia after avoiding a first-lap, first-turn crash involving pole sitter Oriol Servia. Bourdais needed just one point to take the championship for a second straight year. He got that simply by starting the race. The 26-year-old Bourdais overtook early leader Paul Tracy with the help of an excellent first pit change and held on to win the 57-lap race on the 2.795-mile temporary street circuit. It’s the first time the Newman/Haas team, owned by actor Paul Newman and former racer Haas, has had back-to-back series winners in its 23-year history. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He started in the 38th position and wound up fifth. “Today, we did everything we could do, even though I put us in a bad spot,” said Bowyer, who crashed his ACDelco Chevrolet in the final turn of his second qualifying lap in the morning. “We’d had the fastest car in practice, and I was trying to prove it in qualifying. Maybe it just made me mad enough to do what I had to do.” Truex, after starting on the pole, faded a bit to third and chose to remain there rather than gamble on tires late in the race. “You don’t want to lose track position in that situation – and if we had gone back we might have found even more trouble,” Truex said. The race featured a record 15 caution flags, including two multicar accidents in the fourth turn during the final 50 laps. Fourteen of 43 cars didn’t finish the race, tying an event record. No one was injured in the mishaps.
