This Week's The Hartford Chevrolet at Auto Club Speedway ... Clint Bowyer will pilot chassis No. 324 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stable. This is a brand new No. 33 racer that will be put through its first paces in this weekend's 400 miler.

Clint Bowyer Live ... Bowyer is one of several drivers who will sign autographs at the Stater Bros. Racefest event on Thursday, October 7 from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Auto Club Speedway FanZone, located behind the frontstretch grandstands. Three hundred tickets will be given out on a first come, first serve basis.

CLINT BOWYER:

You started third and finished eighth earlier this season at Fontana. It seems like all the RCR cars were bad to the bone out there. "Yeah, we were very good out there for the spring race, so, hopefully, we can carry that on. It's one of those hit or miss tracks for me, but coming off that spring race, I have a lot more excitement. I think we have a lot better equipment and our cars have changed a bunch since then. I think we can improve a lot."

Fontana can be a track that's tricky on fuel mileage. If you're in the Chase, do you have to play the mileage game? "Here's the thing when you're in the Chase - until maybe two or three (laps) to go, it's full on, full court press. You have to do everything you can do to get a win, let the cards fall as they may, and, hopefully, they fall in your favor."

California seems that if you roll off fast, you'll be in good shape for the weekend. "California is one of those races where you better show up fairly close, or you're going to struggle. You may get yourself a decent top-10 finish, but you're going to fight hard for it all weekend long."
