Michael McDowell No. 34 A&W All American Food Ford Mustang Started: 23rd | Finished: 31st
"We showed speed this weekend, but had a tire go down early in the race and we had damage. That basically ended our chance, but it didn't ruin the day. I think we did a nice job of using the rest of the race to learn more about this package that we can use later this year."
"I loved coming back to Martinsville to race, but I know we all wished for a better result. We were pretty decent, but had a tire go down and lost all that position. We did a good job of getting better in the race, but didn't get the chance to close it out how we wanted. We'll take the positives from the weekend with us."
"This race was a lot different than the Martinsville races that I've known in the past. It's a result of all the downforce we have. I think you saw Brad and his team dominate this race because they had something figured out. We were really tight and tighter in traffic. So, it was really a day to learn for most of us. There were a lot of different things happening today and it just didn't benefit us. We showed good speed this past weekend, but just didn't have the handling to match on Sunday. We'll review the information and come back stronger."
