Michael McDowell and the Chicago White Sox Prepare for the Chicago Street Race

Michael McDowell and the No. 34 team will head to the Windy City to tackle the streets of Chicago, in the second edition of the Chicago Street Race.

McDowell will be carrying a hometown team on his Ford Mustang Dark Horse as the Chicago White Sox will serve as the primary sponsor for the weekend. The Major League Baseball club will be joined by SKIL, an innovative electric power tool brand founded in Chicago in 1924. Celebrating 100 years of innovation including the original worm drive Saw that Built America and current lineup of cordless power tools and outdoor power equipment, SKIL will be featured as an associate sponsor aboard McDowell’s No. 34 entry.

McDowell finished seventh in last year’s rain-shortened, inaugural race after qualifying sixth. The 39-year-old also has a Top-5 finish on a road course this season, finishing second at Sonoma Raceway, back in June.

The weekend will begin with practice and qualifying on Saturday, July 6th at 12:30 p.m. ET on USA Network. Sunday’s race will be at 4:30 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock. Fans can also listen in on the action live from Sirius XM and the Motor Racing Network.

“I think we can be as confident as possible going into the weekend. The Street Course is a really fun track, definitely a challenge. We need to be smart and execute, but I think we can have a good weekend. Also, I’m excited to have the Chicago White Sox on the car, especially with family ties to the Chicago area, so it will be a fun weekend for us and the fans for sure.”


“Chicago is going to be a very important race for us. We have been strong on the road courses, and we look at this event as another great opportunity to get a win and get in the playoffs. It’s a very unique track and weekend, but we are looking forward to the challenge and opportunity of it!”
