It was a battle of the NASCAR stars on the latest episode of “Barmageddon.” Competitors Jimmie Johnson and Clint Bowyer showed up ready to play in what became the highest-scoring episode to date. 

How to Watch

Watch Barmageddon on USA Network and Peacock.

Johnson, a seven-time NASCAR Cup Champion and Blake Shelton’s personal hero, spoke softly but carried a big stick in five games against the former driver and current commentator Bowyer. The latter competitor had something to prove since he never beat Johnson on the track. However, Bowyer was determined to beat Johnson in the five bar games.

Unfortunately, that proved difficult from the get-go with Beer Bombs. Although Bowyer’s team got an early lead, a few misplaced shots from his Viral VIP partner allowed Johnson to tie up the game. 

Bowyer got his payback in Air Cannon Corn Hole. Although both competitors were sinking expert shots right in the hole, it all came down to Bowyer's last take to either get a bag on the board to tie or get one in the hole to win. Of course, he sunk it and took the game. 

With the score tied up, it all came down to Keg Kurling. Despite some helpful rule-bending by Shelton, the game was tied at 10 to 10 in the final round. Once again, just one shot would determine the game. Johnson had a last chance to win, and win he did.

Unfortunately, it was all moot once they broke into H.O.R.S.E. on a Horse, where Johnson displayed some impressive deadeye skills, but was no match for Bowyer, who ran away with the lead and the win. 

With that, Team Bowyer was up going into the final game, Four Play. Thanks to some impressive shooting from both Johnson and his Viral VIP partner, they took home the game, sending “Barmageddon” into its fist-ever sudden death round. The final premise was simple: Each celebrity would take a shot with a basketball and the first to sink it would win. 

Johnson did his best, but missed his first and allowed Bowyer to step up, sink a shot, and finally get that win against his fellow NASCAR driver that he’d always wanted.
