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."
No. 34 Long John Silver's Ford Mustang Started: 21 | Finished: 17 "It was a good day for Front Row Motorsports. Our No. 34 Long John Silver's Ford, I think we just missed a Top-15, and maybe with some more luck, a Top-10. "But, it was good to have some speed and race for position all day. We kept getting the car better and better, and it was another solid run. We had two races with bad luck and now we are back on track where we belong."
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.”
No. 34 Jimmy Means Throwback/ Dockside Logistics Ford Mustang Started: 23 | Finished: 38 "I saw the 8 start to get loose like he blew a tire and chased it up the track. I was already on the bottom and I saw the 11 and a few other cars on the top and they were just trying to get down and we all kind of jumped on the brakes. You’re so fast at that point when you jump on the brakes the cars get pretty loose and out of control. I think I got clipped by the 11 in the right-rear and just kind of turned me hard right into the wall and in front of the field, but it’s really unfortunate. We had a decent Dockside Logistics throwback car. We were logging laps trying to get to the end and were just in the wrong place at the wrong time."
