clint

boyer has successfully transitioned from a nascar cup series driver to an announcer the former stuart haas racing driver might sometimes rub folks the wrong way with his over-the-top antics on occasion but overall he's a good addition to the network providing insightful commentary from the driver's perspective in boyer's second season he had to make a major adjustment with the departure of jeff gordon instead of the four-time champion sitting next to him and mike joy in the booth it's been a rotation of guest analysts including tony stewart matt kinseth and danica patrick during patrick's two-week stint in the booth she and boyer relived old times at shr and joked with each other at one point the ten time cup winner had heard enough of patrick's repeated talk about her time in indycar and let her know about this move an indy it every now and again at short tracks where i'd come out of the corner and i'd get a little bit of a run but i dart out so that in the mirror i'd fill the mirror real quick and it looked like i got a better run on them than i really did yeah and they gave me a lane those space shuttles over there i don't know that doesn't work over here it's good right this real racing of nascar how about that boyer covered this real racing of nascar through the 15th race of the season and it was a big one the inaugural race at worldwide technology raceway near st louis where he saw an exciting race with joey logano outlasting kyle busch for the win then something strange happened the following race at sonoma and fox's final race of the season boyer was nowhere to be found the network put out a statement that said he was handling a personal matter everyone learned about that personal matter a few days later when reports came out and revealed that boyer had been involved in a

fatal

auto-pedestrian accident according to police reports after the cup race at st louis boyer was driving near lake ozark missouri which is approximately 150 miles southwest of st louis when he struck a woman who was walking on a highway ramp according to the report the former driver called 9-1-1 and helped first responders locate the 47-year-old woman mary jane simmons who was pronounced dead at the scene boyer showed no signs of impairment and provided a clean roadside sample to authorities police said a crystalline substance was found in the woman's possessions while residents at the roadside park where she was staying said they believed she was under the influence boyer later released a statement anyone that knows me knows that family is everything to me my thoughts and prayers are with the family and loved ones of miss simmons this is a very difficult time for my family and i please respect our privacy as we move forward boyer who has always been active on twitter unsurprisingly went quiet since that

tragic

day fans have wondered when he might break his

silence

they found out this past week when the 43 year old replied to a tweet by cars tour driver hayden swank who posted photos of his car for an upcoming race that will honor boyer with a paint scheme the driver used during the 2005 o6 xfinity series season so hyped for this scheme what you think

boyer swank tweeted buddy that scheme meant so much to me he replied i wanted to drive that iconic ac delco number two so bad i'll never forget when richard childress told me it was mine go get em as you might expect there was an overwhelmingly encouraging response from fans including one special reply from dale earnhardt jr twitter can often be a vicious platform and very divisive it was nice to see the nascar community unite together and support boyer no doubt helping in the healing process he's likely still got a long road ahead but at least he knows no matter how hard it may be his family his friends and his fans will be there cheering him on just like they did during his 15 years in nascar
