Bobby Hamilton heads into this weekend's race at Talladega 30th in the Winston Cup Series points standings. He is the defending race winner of the spring race on the 2.66 mile tri-oval. But before he can repeat his visit to Victory Lane, he says his first priority is to make the race.

"Restrictor plate racing, it's a weird deal. You can have a car with just a little bit of drag and a real good motor and you're just not going to qualify good but when the flag drops, you can race good. Talladega and Daytona, the very first race we have, is getting into the race."

The driver of the Andy Petree Racing Chevrolet will be bidding for position with 49 other drivers. One of which will be his APR teammate, Mike Wallace. Preen 'N Green, who sponsored team owner Andy Petree last weekend in the Craftsman Truck Series event, will carry it's sponsorship over to this weekend's Winston Cup effort.
