How anonymous is Clint Bowyer?

You’d think that making the Chase for the Nextel Cup, and winning his first career race last week, would earn Clint Bowyer some measure of fame. The type of fame that means your name isn’t misspelled, ever.

And yet, here’s what the Chase standings looked like on SI.com late Sunday:

Chase Standings
1. Jeff Gordon 5,340
2. Tony Stewart 5,338
3. Carl Edwards 5,337
4. Jimmie Johnson 5,336
5. Kyle Busch 5,330
6. Curt Bowyer 5,322
7. Martin Truex Jr. 5,294
8. Jeff Burton 5,265
9. Kyle Harvick 5,225
10. Matt Kenseth 5,224
11. Kurt Busch 5,189
12. Denny Hamlin 5,182

Sorry, Curt. Guess you’ll have to get into a fight on the track with Tony Stewart before you become “Clint.”
