Clint Bowyer comes into Sunday’s Auto Club 400 from the Auto Club Speedway sitting fourth in points, 38 markers behind leader Brad Keselowski. He knows that keeping his good start going will be the key to staying in the points battle throughout the year and the series is coming to a track he’s excited to race at. “It’s always good to go to the race track.  This is a fun race track.  For as big as it is, it’s always a lot of fun when it widens out on the race — running high, running low and duking and driving.  It always seems to race pretty well.  For the size of this race track, we all enjoy ourselves pretty well out there.  Looking forward to it.  Had a strong run last week (at Bristol) and hopefully we can continue this momentum and keep building.  This is a good time of the year to get your mojo rolling and get a good points base established so you can roll into the summer months being able to race as hard as you want and take as many chances as you want,” Bowyer told media members Friday from the track. It doesn’t hurt that the new Generation 6 race car has lent itself to allowing drivers the ability to be more aggressive with their racing. That in turn should translate into better races for the fans, and Auto Club Speedway has been known as a “boring” race by many. “I think our speeds will be faster with more aero grip with the new car.  I think we’ve seen good things with this new car.  After the Daytona 500, since we’ve been on what I call a regular race track, it’s performed well and put on good shows.  I was excited about what we saw at Bristol.  I thought it was an entertaining race to be in and had some excitement all the way through and had a little fireworks going at the end.  It was fun to see at Bristol and I think that same thing will play out here,” said Bowyer. The only thing that might keep Bowyer out of Victory Lane on Sunday is past history. So far, Toyota has not won at the Auto Club Speedway. Present that to Bowyer and you’ll get a response of the statistics don’t matter. “I think this is a track that Toyota is going to win at soon.  Our speeds are fast with our Toyotas on these big race tracks.  A Toyota won at the only mile-and-a-half we’ve had (on the schedule) so far — that speed will carry over, I believe on this race track.  There’s several of us that run well here as teams and drivers and our equipment is certainly second to none, so we’ll be just fine,” commented Bowyer. Bowyer and the rest of his Michael Waltrip Racing teammates, Mark Martin and Martin Truex, Jr., will be back on track for another practice Saturday at 12:30 PM EST.
