Well now Clint Bowyer is starting to ride a little momentum, and it could come at a better time. Texas and Talladega are both pretty good tracks for the 31 team, so they've set themselves up for a pretty good 4 race run. At Martinsville, Bowyer lead 91 laps en route to a 9th place finish.
Texas is on the schedule next. the season's first night race. Bowyer actually crashed out of the race at Texas Motor Speedway last spring, but bounced back to finish 7th in the fall.
"We've always run decent in Texas," said Bowyer. "It's just sometimes things don't workout like you want them to. There's a lot of different things that come into play. Sometimes its fuel mileage and I think we even got caught up in a wreck last year during the spring race. I'm looking forward to going there. It's always a lot of fun."
And this is gonna be the first time since Daytona that the cars are really gonna let lose and fly at super speedway speeds. But Clint says there is a big difference between in Florida and 200mph in Texas mph.
"You pull on the wheel a lot harder getting into turn one (at Texas) than you do at Daytona," says Bowyer. "You're going over 200 mph, but when you turn off into the corner, you're turning a pretty sharp turning-radius. The G-forces throw the car and slam it down in the corner up near the banking. It's a pretty wild feeling. You're really getting after it."
