Clint Bowyer, No. 07 Camping World/Jack Daniel's Impala SS, met with media at New Hampshire International Raceway to discuss where his team stands, new sponsors and his expectations for Daytona.
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT WHERE YOUR TEAM IS WITH 10 WEEKS BEFORE THE CHASE? "Last week certainly was a breath of fresh air. I wasn't expecting a top-five finish there; road courses are definitely not my most favorite race tracks to be on. But it was a good finish and gave us a little bit of breathing room there. Not much but still it's more than two points than we had going in there. You just have to go out and approach each one of these weekends like you're going to go there and win the race. You always expect to go onto a race track to win and that's certainly not going to change. We've got to be careful on our decisions throughout the race. Pit strategy-wise I need to hit my marks and do the same things I've been doing to get me here. We've got to keep the top 10s coming and stay consistent. Hopefully stay out of trouble."
ABOUT RUNNING THE CAMPING WORLD CAR IN BOTH BUSCH AND CUP RACES: "Looking forward to it. Camping World has been a good sponsor so far for us and we're looking forward to having them on both cars this weekend. They are a really good company. Obviously everybody needs motorhomes so that's a pretty cool sponsor to have. With them sponsoring the Busch race, got a good hot rod over there and looking forward to getting that Camping World Chevrolet in Victory Lane."
YOU ENDED UP ON YOUR ROOF AT DAYTONA LAST TIME YOU WERE THERE - ARE YOU EXPECTING SOMETHING BETTER THIS TIME AROUND? "Just slightly (laughs). I made it to the end, though. That's always good at one of those places. You never know what you got. That was a really good race car and unfortunately it won't be back. It's in the museum over there so we'll be bringing a new car back. That's what's too bad. You build a brand-new race car for one race. That's a lot of money basically blown, in my opinion. Hopefully we can get out of there with a good finish. Daytona has always been a good track for me and we run well there. Who knows, I can't think of a better place to get your first win than Daytona so we've just got to. that's hard. Everybody seems like they've been winning their first race this year and we still haven't done that. You want to make this Chase; that's what this series is all about. Being a part of that Chase and racing, having a chance to win the championship. But I ant to win a race as well."
