Jana Bowyer, mother of NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Clint Bowyer of Emporia, Kan., will drop the green flag for Saturday night’s 5-hour Energy 400 at Kansas Speedway, as part of Mother’s Day weekend.

“We’re a pretty close family, so we’ve all been ragging her a little bit … ‘Don’t drop the flag, mom, just whatever you do, not drop the flag,’” Bowyer said. “It’s pretty cool. I hope there’s not a caution.”
