This Week's BB&T Chevrolet at Talladega Superspeedway ... Clint Bowyer will race Chassis No. 294 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stable. Built brand new for the 2010 season, this No. 33 racer was piloted to a fourth-place finish in the season opening Daytona 500.

CLINT BOWYER:

In the races that you've finished at Talladega, you have an average finish of 8.8. What does it take for you to be good there?

"We have very good race cars. Our plate program is second to none right now. I'm looking forward to going there. I look at Talladega as being the track that I can get my second win of the year."

Last race at Talladega, everyone was saying an ECR engine was going to win and your teammate Kevin Harvick won. How much of an advantage do you feel like you had this year on plate tracks?

"That's certainly the piece of the puzzle that has us up front and leading laps, but I'm sure everyone else has picked their program up since then. I think the boys will be ready for the competition and, hopefully, we can bring another win home for ECR."

You've had some pretty thrilling accidents at restrictor plate races. Can you take anything away from these accidents and learn from them to keep them from happening again, or are you just a victim of what you are?

"I think the only thing you can take away from them is that it's part of racing. You have to be able to put yourself in those positions. You have to put yourself in the position to get to the front and sometimes, being in those situations, will get you in trouble. It's just the nature of the beast. You have to be able to go for it at times and sometimes that will get you."
