A broken shifter last week at Atlanta has put Clint Bowyer in desperation mode at Richmond, where a victory on Saturday night is his best shot to grab a dramatic, last-gasp berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. The broken part was a devastating blow to Bowyer, who lost two spots in the standings and fell behind Ryan Newman and Greg Biffle in the jockeying for the final two spots in the 16-driver Chase field.
