CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — One of these days, Clint Bowyer might have enough gas in his tank to do a celebratory burnout.

Until then, he's just fine walking to Victory Lane.

Bowyer and crew chief Brian Pattie stretched a final tank of fuel to the finish for a win at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday night that pushed the Michael Waltrip Racing team back into the championship picture. It was their third win of the season, and Bowyer has run out of gas after taking the checkered flag all three times.

Bowyer calls the stroll to Victory Lane "the best walk you could ever have."
