Clint Bowyer and Harry Scott Jr., owner of HScott Motorsports, announced Thursday that they have settled the recent lawsuit filed by Clint Bowyer Racing.

Bowyer sought $2.223 million, according to a lawsuit filed Nov. 21 in North Carolina Superior Court.

According to a joint statement from Clint Bowyer Racing and HScott Motorsports, “Mr. Scott provided additional information to Mr. Bowyer, of which he was not aware, which satisfied him that the claims asserted against Mr. Scott should be dismissed. (Clint Bowyer Racing) and HScott Motorsports then reached a mutual and amicable confidential settlement as to the claims for the debt owed to (Clint Bowyer Racing).’'

Said Scott in a statement: “I am glad our race team and Clint Bowyer Racing were able to reach a quick resolution. I wish Clint the best of luck in his career moving forward.”

In a statement, Bowyer said: “I want to thank all the team members for their hard work all season. I’m looking forward to the 2017 season and beyond and wish Harry Scott all the best in the future.”

Bowyer drove for HScott Motorsports this past season after losing his ride with Michael Waltrip at the end of the 2015 season when that team ceased operations. Bowyer takes over the No. 14 from Tony Stewart, who retired after this past season, at Stewart-Haas Racing in 2017.
