I'm not sure if Clint Bowyer is a Lynyrd Skynyrd fan, but I think he's probably hummed "Sweet Home Alabama" at least once this week. After a rough 24th place run for Bowyer at Charlotte, NASCAR heads to Talladega. Recently the 33 has run really well in Alabama. A welcome sight after Bowyer was never really in the race at Charlotte.
"It was just frustrating because we had a decent car before I got loose and wrecked it in practice on Friday," said Bowyer. "These guys worked hard to get the backup ready. We just couldn't catch a break during the race and couldn't recover after we fell a few laps down. Next weekend will definitely be more interesting in Talladega."
Bowyer knows how to put on a show at the SuperSpeedway. He won the fall race last season and finished second this spring (a finish that was, oh by the way, the closest in NASCAR history). There have how ever been some changes to the cars, that could change the way the race unfolds on Sunday, especially when it comes to those two car tandems.
"I am looking forward to seeing what the rule changes are going to do. It's a step in the right direction. Do I think it will fix the two-car tandem? I really don't know. I am reluctant to answer right now. Only time will tell."
