Michael McDowell on Fontana 9 Starts Best Finish: 26th
“I'm looking forward to going to Auto Club Speedway this weekend. It will still be a learning experience, even though we've seen this package at Vegas and Atlanta. I think we'll see more cars staying wide open for longer periods of time. Looking forward to making strides with our No. 34 Love's Ford Mustang and setting ourselves up for where we need to be moving forward this season.”

"We've got some good momentum heading to Fontana this weekend. Coming off a Top-20 finish at Phoenix, I'm excited to see what this package will bring. Our partners at Surface Sunscreen are based in Southern California, so I'm really excited to have them on the car again and hopefully we can strive for another great finish."

"It will be interesting to see how the race plays out with the aero ducts and downforce in this package. Auto Club is a unique track and I really enjoy racing there. We’ve had some good speed so far this year, so I think we will continue to be competitive this weekend.”
Michael McDowell on Phoenix 16 Starts Best Finish: 16th
“I’m excited to go to Phoenix with this package. It will be the first race for a short-track package, so it will be interesting to see what happens. I haven’t been able to test there, so I’m not really sure what to expect, but it's Phoenix, it’s my hometown race and I always look forward to that.”

"Phoenix was a great track for me last year and we came up just short of getting a win there in the Xfinity Series. I feel like this is a great weekend to get some momentum going in the right direction for our team, especially because last week was rough, but we still saw potential during parts of the race. I'm looking forward to hitting the track in our No. 36 Tunity/Surface Sunscreen Mustang."

"I’m really looking forward to going to Phoenix. Phoenix kind of races like a short-track and I think that the new downforce package is going to make for an exciting race. So again, this will be another racetrack that’s unique to start the schedule off with and I can’t wait to see all of our friends from Select Blinds as well.”
