Clint Bowyer doesn't need a reason to throw a party, and he already had one planned even before he won at Sonoma.

Bowyer celebrated the opening of the Bowyer Community Building in his hometown of Emporia, Kan., on Tuesday night with a concert by good friend Blake Shelton. The building is located at the Lyon County fairgrounds and was built with funds raised through Bowyer's "79 Fund" charity.

The event was scheduled before he picked up his first win of the season Sunday. It was Bowyer's first win on a road course, and first since joining Michael Waltrip Racing.

Bowyer says it was the perfect party to cap what he considers "the biggest week we've ever had."
