BEHIND THE HAULER CHAT WITH CLINT BOWYER, NO. 07 JACK DANIELS MONTE CARLO SS
WITH THE SUCCESS THAT DENNY HAMLIN HAS HAD AT POCONO, DO YOU THINK IT'S YOUR TURN NEXT? "I hope so. We've been trying. It's not from lack of effort. We just keep coming up a little bit short. We're a Top 10 car. We've just got to get a little bit better. We were a top five car last week and that was a breath of fresh air, but we didn't finish there. We've just got to get to finishing there."
AT THIS POINT OF THE SEASON, IS PART OF IT PROTECTING YOUR SPOT AND THEN TRYING TO GET YOUR FIRST WIN? "Yeah, obviously you want to be consistent. Consistency always pays off in championships. But trust me, I want to win."
HOW IS THIS TRACK DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS? "In every way, shape, and form. It's a triangle. Most of them are oval. Every corner in this track is different. There are three corners. Turn 1 is pretty fast. You get into it. Turn 2 is perfectly flat; it feels like. You slip and slide around. There's a curve you can get on. Turn 3 is flat again. You slide in until it lands and get to the gas as quick as you can. It's a very unique race track, but it's fun also."
UNIQUE? DO YOU LIKE THAT OR NOT? "Well, one time would be enough (laughs)."
DO YOU LIKE THE MICHIGAN TRACK? "I like any track you can race on. If you can pull out and change your mind and go to a different groove and pass and race, it's a good race track. You can certainly do that there. We've been four and five-wide."
ON THE PENALTY NASCAR GAVE KURT BUSCH: "It's pretty stout. They mean business. I want to know what the penalty is if you crash them on the race track. Obviously he put a lot of crew members in danger and that's not good. People are on foot with no roll cages around them or seatbelts or helmets or things like that. That wasn't a good situation." -credit: gm racing
