The quote of 2013 so far, courtesy of Clint Bowyer

You have to love Clint Bowyer's often deprecating sense of humor. The driver is a fun follow on Twitter and routinely hosts some of the funniest media opportunities in the garage.

On Thursday, Bowyer was in Talladega for a driver appearance before the track's race on May 5. That topic of Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano came up (ever heard of it?) in the context of Bowyer's run-in with Jeff Gordon last year. And when discussing it (you can read the entire story here), Rawhide offered this gem to the AP:

"We're not the smartest people in the world. We go down the straightaway and turn left. That's literally what we do."

Don't sell yourself short, Clint. And that latter part is why we love racing.
