The 32-year-old Bowyer is no stranger to success at the one-mile oval known as "The Magic Mile." In 10 starts at the Loudon, N.H.-based facility, he has led more than 400 laps and visited NMHS Victory Lane twice with his most recent trip coming last September when he kicked off his 2010 NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup campaign.

"It's only fitting that we are going to New Hampshire this weekend for my 200th-career start," said Bowyer. "We have had some significant success up there in the past and, after some bad luck these last few weekends, it's nice to go somewhere where we run well."

Bowyer, a native of Emporia, Kan., has amassed four wins, 30 top-five finishes, 87 top-10 finishes and two poles in six fulltime Sprint Cup Series seasons with Richard Childress Racing. He currently sits 12th in the 2011 NSCS driver championship point standings on the strength of three top-five and eight top-10 finishes.

"I am very fortunate to hit this milestone with the same organization that I came into the sport with over six years ago," the 2008 NASCAR Nationwide Series champion added. "Richard and I have built a great relationship over the years and I appreciate everything he has done for me throughout my career."
