Klocks Werks Kustom Cycles is suing NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer. It turns out that the shop that knows little about spelling knows a thing or two about going after deadbeat customers.
The suit, filed May 2 in Davidson County, claims that Bowyer failed to pay for the customizing work the shop did on his 2009 Harley-Davidson in late 2008 and 2009. In total, the complaint is seeking $30,788.45 for the repair work, the delivery charge of bringing the bike to Daytona Beach, Fla. and then to the Richard Childress Racing facility in Lexington, N.C. after the driver asked for additional work to be done, and an 18 percent annual interest charge accrued since the date that the work was finished.
Bowyer has replied to the court saying that he had never agreed to pay cash for the work, instead agreeing to pay for the work and deliveries by being in “certain promotional services and special accommodations within NASCAR and related publications.” According to the defendant, he has fulfilled his obligation. No matter who’s telling the truth, it’s obvious that vehicle financing can be somewhat more complicated for celebrities like Bowyer. He may get some great deals due to his notoriety, but working out alternative financing arrangement can obviously be a real hassle – much more so than applying for a car loan in Lexington, NC, like a regular Joe.
