Championship Linkage - Nationwide

Thanks once again to the folks at Nationwide, who provide the final interview of the 2008 racing season with champion Clint Bowyer. You can check that out here.

Also, don't forget that the #20 Joe Gibbs Toyota finished the season as the owner's points champion by 12 points over Bowyer's #2 team. The #20 team won a staggering 9 races, and finished the year with 26 top-10 finishes. The margin would have been much larger if not for a 150-point penalty following the Michigan race. perhaps most impressively, the #20 was driven by Joey Logano for half the season, and still managed to win the owner's title. For some reason, I've seen no stories about this feat. It mattered in 2003 and in 2007, but what's the reason against celebrating them this year? I'd like to know.
