August 13, 2011 Updated Aug 13, 2011 at 3:26 PM EDT Watkins Glen, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The eyes of the racing fans of the world will be on upstate New York this weekend as Watkins Glen International hosts the Helluva Good Sour Cream Dips at the Glen. Action Sports reporter Gabe Osterhout talked to some of the drivers about the upcoming Chase, racing on a road course, and strategy for the weekend. "We're just 5 weeks away from the chase and the drivers are here at Watkins Glen International. Those fighting for a spot say this week...no easy task. It's a lot different to drive on a road course than it is an oval and many of these drivers say they're going to take time to practice." "Ya know, to me, to be able to run more laps on a track, I feel is beneficial. I enjoy that and here at Watkins Glen I think that helps a little bit too. Just being able to hone your skills a little more, especially at a road course, ya know turning right and turning left, we don't do it a whole lot so its more beneficial to get more laps," says Kyle Busch. Strategy is also a big factor this weekend. With the chase right around the corner, some drivers are looking to move up in the standings. They say you've got to play things safe, but not overly safe." "You just have to be careful, You have to be careful but you have to be aggressive at the same time. You've got to be aggressive enough to make passes, make bold passes, but you have to be careful enough to not dig yourself in a deeper hole," says Clint Bowyer. "As the race progresses, everybody gets more aggressive but when you double file, have double file restarts late, in the late stages of the race, it definitely presents the opportunity for a lot more bumping and aggressive moves," says Jeff Gordon. And some, like Tony Stewart who is 9th in points, is looking to have success at a track that's been good to them in the past. "This is a cool track no matter what time of the year you are here so I just always look forward to coming here. It's always been good to us. I've had very good luck here and ya know it's a fun area, so it doesn't matter to us," says Tony Stewart. The race is scheduled for Sunday afternoon but may be pushed back because of the weather. If so, it would be run on Monday. Then the drivers pack up and its off to Michigan for the next race. We're here at Watkins Glen International, Gabe Osterhout, Action Sports.
