Clint Bowyer, No. 07 Jack Daniel's Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS, met with members of the media and discussed his race at Daytona, momentum from last year, preparing for qualifying, on whether or not he should have won already, Kansas Speedway, making mistakes, staying positive and pressure on the team.

Select quotes from driver interview:

ARE YOU HAPPY WITH YOUR IMPROVEMENT OVER LAST YEAR? "Absolutely. When we've run good it was always easy and then when we'd struggle most of the weekends that we would push too hard and end up crashing or end up making a mistakes or doing something that would take a 20th-place run and finish 40th with it. And those are the things we've come a long way with. If we've got a 15th-place car we can possibly squeeze a 13th out of it, if not we're going to finish 15th with it instead of having a 15th-place car and finishing 30th with it like last year."

ON SUCCESS BUT NOT HAVING YET WON A RACE: "It's a good feeling, obviously. I don't know what to think. I don't know whether that's good or bad - whether I should have won already or not but I think our day is coming. We've shown the potential to win races, we just have got to get it to all fit together. I think we have all the pieces of the puzzle, we've just got to get them put together right and we'll win."
