MITCHELL — Star NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer has asked a South Dakota judge to dismiss a motorcycle company’s lawsuit against him that alleges he didn’t pay for $31,000 of custom work it did on his Harley-Davidson.
Klock Werks Kustom Cycles in Mitchell says it did the work on Bowyer’s motorcycle about four years ago. The company is seeking the money plus 18 percent annual interest, along with attorney and court fees.
Bowyer, 33, who was the runner-up in NASCAR’s top-tier Sprint Cup series in 2012 and currently is fourth in this year’s standings, says he repaid the debt through promotional services.
He also says South Dakota has no jurisdiction over him because his deal with Klock Werks was made in Arizona, the motorcycle was bought in Minnesota and it was delivered to him in North Carolina.
