Why does Clint Bowyer have a lobster hanging on his wall?

   For the past seven seasons, Sprint Cup Series winners at New Hampshire Motor Speedway have received a unique prize in addition to the traditional winner's trophy. They earn a large rock lobster - some of which look as large as the drivers. 

   Clint Bowyer, who has two wins at New Hampshire, was asked what he did with his lobster and the avid hunter had an appropriate reply.

   “It’s hanging on my wall right next to my trophy animals -- I figure it’s a trophy right. I have four or five deer heads on the wall, a couple elk heads and my lobster," he said. "Everybody is like, ‘I get it, I get it, I get it, why is that there?’  Hey, it’s a trophy.”
