Emporia, Kan., native Clint Bowyer looks to continue his recent success on the track at Talladega when he runs in the Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 Sunday on NASCAR's largest track, the Talladega Superspeedway. Bowyer has won the fall Talladega race the past two years, and sees today's race as possibly determining this year's Sprint Cup champion. Via USA Today:

"This is a big weekend for our sport, for our Chase and for everybody involved in it,'' Bowyer said Friday. "This can be a game-changer. This is one of the tracks that can separate somebody and possibly win you a championship. It seems like each and every week, these first few, it's been a point or two here, a point or two there. This is one that can swing 20 or 30 points and take you out of the running or put you into it.''

Six races remain in the race for the Cup, with Bowyer currently sitting in fourth place in the standings, 25 points behind series leader Brad Keselowski. Jimmie Johnson sits in second place, five points behind Keselowski, with Denny Hamlin 16 points behind, holding the third spot in the standings.

The exact start time of Sunday's Talladega race is 2:23 p.m. ET.
