ADDISON, Ill.— ITsavvy, Official Technology Solutions Provider of Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), just announced the second race of its sponsored racecar, driven by Clint Bowyer, this Sunday, Nov. 11 at ISM Raceway near Phoenix.
The playoff race will determine which drivers advance to the Championship 4 round. Clint Bowyer is currently in seventh place and will need to win this race to advance to the final playoff race at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 18.
Of the final eight drivers with a chance to fill the remaining positions in the Championship 4 round, a remarkable four are SHR drivers. The driver that wins the Phoenix race will automatically qualify.
ITsavvy President and CEO Mike Theriault said, “We wish all four SHR drivers the best of luck.
