Just after his first win, a NASCAR driver received an expected gesture from one of country music’s famous singers.


Country Rebel reported that Blake Shelton shared a photo on his Twitter account wishing his close friend Clint Bowyer before dedicating another post to his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani.

It was his first win in almost 200 races, NASCAR driver Bowyer did not expect his close friend to react in the way he did.

The two have been friends for more than a decade. They have even appeared at various events to support one another. 

Shelton had stood up for Bowyer during the infamous feud between him and Jeff Gordon.

The country singer sent out a good-luck tweet just before the 2018 Daytona 500. Bowyer finally broke his winless streak and took home the top honors.


Shelton clicked a photo of himself giving is friend Bowyer a wave as he stood in the broadcasting booth for Fox Sports NASCAR. However, the wave was with just his one finger.

Fans are not reading too much into the episode, as the two have their own code and sense of humor. It is evident that Shelton’s gesture at Bowyer is one of their inside jokes.

According to comments on the post, Bowyer had been talking up a storm about Shelton on the broadcast. His statements are said to have inspired Shelton to give his friend a ‘wave.’


Shelton’s active presence is well-known to his fans. He often uses social media to connect with his fans and friends. When some expressed confusion and displeasure at the photo, others came to his rescue and said that the ‘super-close friends’ do it to each other all the time. One user, Lisa Margarett, said that it was a boy thing.

Shelton has also used the social media to express his love to his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani.

Just a few hours before posting the special message to his friend, Bowyer, Shelton declared that Stefani was an ‘adopted Okie.’


‘Hey @gwenstefani it’s official… with your arrowhead finding eye you are now an adopted Okie!!! Side note: I love you pretty girl…’

Though he lives part-time in Los Angeles, his heart will always belong to Oklahoma. Stefani, a southern California native, has been spending a lot of time in Oklahoma since the two began dating.

And now he has announced her an ‘adopted Okie.’
