Clint Bowyer, No. 07 Jack Daniels Impala SS, met with media members at Watkins Glen International and discussed racing at The Glen; strategy as the Chase approaches and Robby Gordon.

Select quotes from driver interview

ON PRACTICE AT THE GLEN: "Not very good, we have a lot of work to do. We didn't get to make a qualifying run so obviously our time is not where it needs to be, but we'll be all right in qualifying trim."

ON NEXT WEEK AT MICHIGAN: "There are some good tracks coming up for us. I'll be happy to get out of here and get on to Michigan and California. Bristol has always been a fun place for me. Looking forward to getting to those race tracks. "

ON BEING CLOSE TO BUBBLE FOR CHASE AND CONCERN ABOUT POSSIBLE POINTS SITUATION COMING OUT OF THE GLEN WITH ALL THE ROAD COURSE SPECIALISTS: "Those are the guys you want to get out in front of you, you just don't want the guys running for points in front of you. We are going to concentrate on what we are doing. We have to focus on what we can control."

ON BEING ABLE TO TAKE ANY RISKS IN FIVE RACE REMAINING BEFORE CHASE: "I don't think you want to take risks right now. You want to be conservative and solid. That is going to be the thing that is going to get you in the Chase."

ON DIFFERENCE AT THE GLEN IN NEW GENERATION VERSUS OLD CAR LAST YEAR: "The are a lot different. You can't get in as deep, it doesn't seem like they turn as good, but it is still four wheels and a steering wheel. You have got to make the best of it."

ON ROBBY GORDON AS A DRIVER: "He is Robby, I don't know any other way to put it. You just never know what to expect with him."
