Michael McDowell on the ROVAL 1 Start Best Finish: 18th
“Obviously, I'm excited to race at the ROVAL this weekend. I always enjoy going to a road course, but this one is certainly different from Watkins Glen and Sonoma in that there's very little room for error. If something happens or you make a mistake at Sonoma, you can go off course, but there's less opportunity to do that here. We had some good speed in this race last year, and I'm looking forward to putting on a good show in our No. 34 Love's Travel Stops Ford Mustang."
Michael McDowell on Richmond 17 Starts Best Finish: 12th
“Richmond is always a great short track. It's tough to pass, but the groove usually widens out as the night goes on. These last nine races are really important for us. We know where we've run well and where we want to make improvements for the rest of the year. Our No. 34 Long John Silver's team is going to do everything we can to finish out the season on a high note."
Michael McDowell on Las Vegas 11 Starts Best Finish: 18th
“It's typically pretty hard to pass at Las Vegas. You've got to find the right speed in the car both in traffic and running by yourself. Back in March, we had a good car but made some mistakes that we couldn't recover from. We've made a lot of progress on our No. 34 Ford Mustang since then and I'm ready to show our partners at Love's Travel Stops and International Trucks what we are capable of at this track."
Michael McDowell on Indianapolis 9 Starts Best Finish: 17th
“There's something really special about going to Indy - it's almost hard to explain. That track has so much history and so many emotions associated with it, it's a place where you really want to win. At the end of the day, a lot of the time you're battling the track itself. It can be difficult to pass because the corners are so tight and you can't really run well in a pack. Pit strategy and restarts will be the key to a good run in our No. 34 Long John Silver's Ford Mustang.”
